I bet you clicked on this article because of the title.  Already you are disappointed because you know you’ve been fooled.  But hang in there for just a minute because I want to share something really important about articles that promise you the easy steps to wealth, success, and ultimate happiness.

Ready?  Here it is:  They are full of it.

The authors don’t have any idea of what would make you successful or rich or happy.  They couldn’t possibly.  The reason is simple – they don’t know you at all.

There isn’t a nice easy formula to success and happiness.  And wealth certainly doesn’t guarantee happiness either.  Often it brings misery.

If you are desperate for some kind of formula for life, here’s the best I have to offer:  Be the best you, you can be.  Don’t try to be someone else or what someone else wants you to be.  Be you.  Fully.  You might not be rich as a result.  You might not even be happy.  You probably won’t be successful, according to the world.  But I’m willing to bet you’ll be content, have better relationships, do the work that you probably enjoy.  You’ll probably have enough, not too little or too much.
