Studies have shown that a lottery winner will be no more happy within six months of winning.

Equally someone who experiences a serious accident and becomes a paraplegic, gets back to the same level of happiness as before the accident.

Don’t mistake your pursuit towards financial wealth or external perception as a goal to be happier.

The hyper-achiever finds this urge hard to control.

The key to a successful life is not just the wealth in the bank, but in our ideas, creativity, relationships and health.

When we learn to make peace with this we start to thrive and feel in control of our businesses.

Otherwise we’ll be the last people standing celebrating our financial success alone.
