Women Empowerment ~ "Am I Happy?" Do Education and or Wealth Help Promote Happiness Externally? Or is Happiness more of an Inside Job?
Research into personal happiness has yielded something a little less obvious to a casual viewer. Being better educated, richer, or more accomplished doesn’t do much to predict whether someone will be happy.
In fact, it might mean someone is less likely to be satisfied with life. The question we need to ask is what makes people truly happy if education and or monetary status do not necessarily promote it?
Did you know that those who are better educated and wealthy, most often their goal is to accumulate more stuff or information because of fear losing what they have? Most of those who are highly educated, wealthy or even celebs, are so worried about losing what they have that they work hard because they rely on scarcity as their premise and not abundance. They are not even content with what they have and they tend to live within the top upper left portion of their minds. It is as if they finely reach their goal, they are not happy with their success, but they charge off in search of another end.
The trouble with living in the upper top quadrant of the mind is that it is a judgement brain, so one is never happy. This is because one is always comparing what he or she has with what one doesn’t have. So this ever comparison type of person can never be happy in life. One of the reasons is because this type of person is living from a script of I win, at the other person’s expense.
However, people who live comfortably have more apt to be happy. Those who live comfortably once they obtain some wealth usually believe they have enough, and don't have the desire to accumulate more.
Money and spending to them becomes more of desire to circulate their wealth so others may receive more too. They don’t have a win/lose attitude but a win/win philosophy in life.
When one spends it creates a multiplier effect whereby one dollar spent on a widget can create another 10 dollars to benefit other's expenditures. This attitude of spend to circulate rather than to accumulate more, is a far healthier attitude on wealth. More importantly, it makes the person who spends with circulation and spreading wealth to all and not just in accumulating, happier. Happier because everyone wins when wealth is circulates and not hoarded.
It becomes an attitude of sharing or helping others progress in life and not just to profit for one’s own sake. This is a bigger perspective while one is living within the center region of one’s mind, or a more creative brain to make a person more relaxed and also as one continues living by the Law of Attraction.
