You’ve probably heard the Beatles song, “Money can’t buy me love.”
But, money should be able to buy happiness, right?
If people can buy the things they want, need, and enjoy, it seems like money should make them happy. But it doesn’t always.
Harvard researchers say it’s because people don’t optimally spend their money. They don’t know what makes them happy, so they waste their money on things they think will make them happy but often don’t. They simply don’t know how to use their money to sustain happiness and experience a richer, more meaningful life.
This is such a deep topic, we could spend a whole year on this topic, but if you’re interested in learning more about the science of money and happiness, I would encourage you to check out a book I’ve mentioned before called “Happy Money: The Science of Happier Spending”.
I’ve found that many people simply haven’t intentionally thought about what their best life looks like. I would encourage you to do so. How can you live your best life? Do you know what your best life looks like?
While money is an opportunity for happiness, it’s no guarantee. And Harvard researchers say that, if money isn’t making us happy, it’s our fault. But there are things we can do about it. We can use our wealth with purpose to create the rich lives we want to live. Are you ready to live a richer, better life? Want to discover the purpose behind your wealth?
