Monday Money's Funny -- Too Happy to be Rich

One of the regular features on my blog is "Monday's Money Funny" which are humorous (at least to me) articles/jokes/just about anything that I've discovered over the weekend when I catch up on all my on line reading that spark a need for knowledge. For example the previous Monday Money Funny was a not so Funny Money Funny about being unable to Afford the Mortgage.

This week's Monday Money Funny is from CNN Money. Its an article called What to be Rich? Don't get to Happy.

Below are highlights from the article, click here to read the article in full:

"Diener and his colleagues used data from the World Values Survey, which measures the happiness of respondents on a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 the happiest). They found that income did indeed increase along with happiness but not at the very top. The 10s earned significantly less than the 8s and the 9s. The latter were also more likely to have gone to college, have engaged in the political process and have saved money."

For those of you too happy to get rich here's a few resources to help you still get rich. (PS Teach me to be that happy!)

Makes sense to me. If you are already living your dream (a 10 on the happiness scale) then you don't feel the need to make more money.

Very true -- I agree. Why rock the boat if you like the path its heading down.
