“Happiness is not the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.”
– Franklin D. Roosevelt
As many people who have made more money than they could ever possibly spend in their lifetimes and kept going could tell you, money is not the be all end all of a professional career, nor the result of passionate pursuit.
Money is not happiness, and most of the time (unless you’re finally able to buy your first house and help the people around you after having not been able to), the things that money can afford are not the key to happiness either.
Phenomenally successful people will, instead, turn to the game that they play, the ability to do what they love and the pursuit of the greatness that they always believed they were capable of on a grander scale than anything they could ever imagine.
