    I always wondered if happiness was a important factor on the way to success. Like if you often are happy, you might be more active, try new things etc. Do you think you need to be happy to achieve to success?

    I think its the other way around

    With success comes happiness. Not with happiness comes success.

    Yep If you are happy why would you try even harder ? think about it, for example many people get lazy and stop going to gym / working out when they get GF/BF. Also if you are happy with the income you are making at the moment why would work your ass off (ofcourse you still might want to make it work even better) But when you are unhappy and got shitloads of bills to pay youll be definitely more motivated.

    I think being succesfull in what ever you think is important to you is in major role for your happiness. The other things might depend on person

    Being happy is the biggest success in life. All the stuff that we have around us, all the established systems, rules etc were made to make man happy. Somehow we forgot all that along the way and we now run from pillar to post in search of "success" most often at the cost of happiness.

    Success does not correlate necessarily to happiness but if you have happiness then you are a success. The problem with the pursuit of success is that we often miss out on the multitude of moments along the journey. Really, the only moment you have is the present one, measure your happiness in the present moment. The rest is dreams and regrets.
