Your insights into the connection between happiness, attitude, and success are thought-provoking. It's evident that cultivating a positive mindset and embracing gratitude can lead to personal fulfillment and attract success. However, it's important to acknowledge the role of external factors and systemic barriers that may impact individuals differently. While attitude influences outcomes, addressing systemic inequalities is crucial for creating opportunities for all to thrive. Thank you for sharing your perspective on this nuanced topic.

I always believed in this till I became an adult. Money has gotten me happiness a few times and if I'm happy but not earning doing something I often get sad on the long run

This is an argument that I wonder if it'll ever end. It depends on your definition of money and true happiness. The statement looks somewhat relevant anyway.

The statement "Money doesn't buy happiness, but true happiness buys money and success" reflects the complex interplay between financial wealth, happiness, and success. While financial resources can contribute to happiness up to a point, true happiness—stemming from personal fulfillment, meaningful relationships, and a positive outlook—can significantly enhance one's chances of achieving success.

Ok, this proverb shows true facts of human compassion. I have seen people who are grateful for little things, indeed achieving higher status,money gradually. Here , I would refer true happiness to gratefulness.

I agree. Without happiness, money is useless. Having money without having happiness is like having nothing because money is value, and in essence, true happiness buys money. That's the real truth.

This is a pure fact. When you have little or contented you feel okay and happy without much thoughts but once money comes in you begin to think of so many things, problems starts coming.

I think putting on great smiles each day, having positive energy can definitely shape ones mindset as well as his life more than money.

This is a debatable statement. Financial security can certainly reduce stress and contribute to happiness, but it's not a guarantee. True happiness might come more from strong relationships, purpose in life, and overall well-being.

The key to happiness lies in perspective and attitude; embracing gratitude and maintaining a positive outlook fosters well-being. Conversely, dwelling on complaints, irrespective of circumstances, can impede happiness.

My father's response to the 1998 challenges, remaining positive and grateful despite loss, exemplifies the power of a radiant attitude in adversity, leading to unexpected success through connections. I'm glad this philosophy resonates with me, and I'm honored my words could offer comfort during challenging times.

True happiness is being content with what you have. Being content with the work you have and having a genuine desire to work to the best of your ability will eventually lead to great money and success.

Money doesn't buy happiness, but true happiness (e.g. practicing radical acceptance of what you cannot control, practicing consistent daily gratitude, and being an actually pleasant person that people like to be around) buys money and gets you huge success in all sorts of fields
