    What if money were no object? What would you spend your life doing? Alan Watts said "It's better to live a short life doing what you love than it is to spend a long life being miserable."

    What would you do??

    So, are you an unhappy owner of a private jet or have you donated your riches to charity and are now happy?

    No I am just happy doing what I do, although I know people with everything who have drank themselves to death very unhappily.

    Nope, in your opinion they had everything. Obviously something important was missing in their lives that drove them to self destruction.

    Everybody has his own happiness recipe, and for everyone there is a key ingredient. For some it's money, for some it's family, for some it's health, etc.

    Some spend their lives not knowing what makes them happy and that's just sad.

    Everything as in money wise, therefore, money does not bring happiness. Not even worth getting into a debate about really, considering it is a fact that money does not bring happiness. In fact in many cases it can bring misery.

    There was this report on TED a guy studying happiness.
    He said that the level of happiness between a man who won the lottery and a man who lost his legs after 1 year it will be equal so no money does not = happiness .

    Money = Comfort but thats all.

    You can reach maximum level of happiness playing in a muddle of mud if that is what you love.
    So Happiness = Love

    I think it is more a matter of how you earn your money and how much time you put into it. Of course we need money, saying we don't is cr*p. Everybody makes money in one way or the other, the lucky ones are the ones that like doing what they do. That is why so many people read forums like this, to find freedom and MONEY, not to find how they can ride horses. Just my $0.02
