Happiness and Wealth J.D.Roth
Lumturia dhe Pasuria J.D.Roth
Excerpts from the book:
Being happy matters more than being rich “Happiness, not gold or prestige, is the crucial currency.” – Tal Ben-Shahar
You do not want to be rich – you want to be happy. Although the mass media have convinced many people that wealth leads to happiness, this does not always happen. Of course, money can help you achieve your goals, take care of your future, and make life more enjoyable, but just having things does not guarantee fulfillment. This book will show you how to get the most out of your money, but before we get into the details, it is important to research why you should be interested in this. There is not much benefit to learning about compound interest or high-income savings accounts if you do not know how money affects your well-being. If personal finances were as simple as understanding mathematics, this book would not be necessary at all; people would never spend too much, never get into debt, and never make stupid financial decisions. But research shows that our choices are based on something more than simple arithmetic – they are also influenced by a complex network of psychological and emotional factors. This chapter provides a quick overview of the relationship between money and happiness. You will also learn techniques for escaping the mental pitfalls that make it difficult to enjoy what you have. As you will see, you do not need a million euros to be happy.
