Can Money Buy You Happiness?
I know, I know.
We’ve all heard the phrase, “Money can’t buy you happiness.”
Or its twin, “You can’t take it with you.”
Can you spot the psychological flaws in those quotes?
Hmm… do you see…
They’re designed to make you feel satisfied with where you are because, of course, “money can’t make you happy.”
And not only that…
Having focused so hard on building your business, made financial sacrifices to keep re-investing, compromised time with your family and passed up the odd holiday or more.
I’d not be surprised if right now…
You feel this exact way!
Despite the money you make, you’ve not hit that level of happiness, freedom you expected to have by now.
Not only do you hear these quoted banded around left right and centre,
You also have a stack of evidence in your own life…
– so it must be true – right?
Let’s look shall we…
Recently you might have noticed…
The internet decided to quote a popular study that supposedly found money makes us happy up to $75,000, then it levels off.
Have you read it?
Does it even make any sense to you?
It certainly left me scratching my head….
Earning $75,000 in a major city like London or New York is completely different to someone living deep in the country.
It doesn’t even pass the sniff test!
Yet every social media guru is out there quoting this study over and over.
In reality, the 2010 study by Deaton and Kahneman found that “emotional well-being” peaks at $75,000. But if you take another measure, “life satisfaction,” you find no plateau — not at $75,000, or $500,000, or even $1 million.
That’s right — money CAN buy happiness.
Which brings us to…
One of the funny things you discover (not “haha” funny) when you are in business for yourself is…
“Wherever you go… there you are.”
Meaning, if you sabotaged yourself with money before you started your business, it’s pretty much guaranteed you’ll keep doing it in your business, at every level…
So, if you buy into this idea that “Money can’t buy you happiness” you’ll never invest in creating your own happiness, your own Life Worth Living.
I know how weird that can sound, but it’s true. And if you’re willing to explore this, you may be surprised by the results.
