How to Be Rich and Happy?

How to Be Rich and Happy?If you are to choose, what will you choose?  Will you choose to be happy or be rich?

On the average, you have probably chose one between the two; it’s either you chose happiness or richness.  And that’s what most people do.

In our world now, we were raised in a world of scarcity.   We were raised to believe that to have something you have to sacrifice another thing.  And such thinking causes a person to limit their ability to achieve both happiness and richness in life.  This is why many people settle to just one so they don’t need to sacrifice another.

However, unknown for many, there are people who lives with both richness and happiness.

Few people achieves both because only few know and understand the law of abundance.

The principle in law of abundance simply means that any person deserve the good things in life.  These things include wealth, happiness and love.  Only those who understand and believe in the law of abundance that are able to enjoy it.

The law of abundance also explains why there are poor, middle-class, and rich people.  The poor and middle-class are blinded by the law of abundance that’s why they live life complaining on so many things but doing nothing or acting on unnecessary things.  On the other hand, the rich focus their time and energy into definite actions which brings them direct results, which later on brings more prosperity and fulfillment in their life.  They don’t react or complain, instead, they do something and focus in acting upon it.

Personally, it saddens me to see people who live life struggling to have both happiness and prosperity in life.  At the back of my mind, I understand the reason behind their hardship and struggles. And most probably it is caused by lack of these two important assets in life:

  1. Time
  2. Money

Ironically, these two things is also the reason behind the abundance of wealth and happiness of few people.  It is therefore safe to say that,

How we see and make use of our time and money that which brings the results in our life.

So if you are the type who play and sleep most of the time (or stays in unprogressive situation), you are probably going to receive no abundance and fulfillment in your life.  However, if you are the type who strives to focus in productive work and make us of your time effectively in what you can do best at (or with high possibility of progress), there is a great chance that you are enjoying abundance of both richness and happiness in your life.

If you are the type who doesn’t have the luxury of time and money in your hand, you are probably curious on how to start achieving both.  Well, my friend, I advise that before you go out there working hard on indefinite goals, I ask you start first with your mindset and attitude.

Begin by reflecting on this:

If today is the last day of your life, as you enter the gates of heaven, can you answer these two questions with a “YES”?

  1. Were you happy?
  2. Were others happy because you’ve existed?

If there is a chance you’ve answered “NO”, remember this:

Life is short and limited.  This is why you should strive to live it to the fullest.  Today, begin striving to achieve abundance both in richness and happiness.  Stop aiming for an unknown goal.  Don’t waste your limited time slacking and endlessly complaining. Be proactive and winner of your life.  Start now before it becomes too late!

If you’ve answered “YES” in one of the question, just continue what you’re doing and reflect on what more you can do to improve your situation.

For a final note, let me leave you one of my favorite quotes by Mr. Napoleon Hill:

“The mind has a definite way of clothing one’s thoughts in appropriate physical equivalents. Think in terms of poverty and you will live in poverty. Think in terms of opulence and you will attract opulence. Through the eternal law of harmonious attraction one’s thoughts always clothe themselves in material things appropriate unto their nature.”


In case you need some guidance in achieving both richness and happiness in life, I’ve written a book that teaches all the principles in living the good life.

Two years ago, I was only striving to achieve both happiness and richness in life.  It was only a dream, because back then, I was living with too much stress and crisis in my life.  But such negative circumstance gave me courage to improve my reality.  It opened my mindset into personal development that which taught me a lot of life wisdom, and have helped me reached richness and happiness in my life.

My experience and lessons I’ve gained towards my journey to good life is all inside a book I’ve written.  That book is entitled, “Life Begins @ 21: 21 Days to Begin a Good Life” This book is my way to share how I did achieve the good life at the age of 24 years  old.  I’ve summarized the principles that I’ve learned and used in order to acquire the life that I wanted.  To know more about it, just visit this url:

Happy Journey to your Life!
