Decades ago, in Ted Nicholas’ newsletter, I read an article that outlined the 4 conditions required to enjoy a happy and successful life.
I have since read versions of these rules many times from numerous authors, and through this and my own limited experiences, believe them to be true.
So without further ado, here are the 4 things you need for a happy and successful life (note: the list below gives you WHAT you need, but not HOW to get them; that will be covered in upcoming blog posts):
A greater-than-average income and net worth free you from money worries, increase your self-esteem, and give you greater security and peace of mind than 97% of the rest of the world enjoys.
The second key to happiness is to find a career that you not only enjoy but are actually passionate about.
As the late Les Paul said, if you do your hobby for a living, you?ll never work a day in your life.
Your life will not be complete without friends, family, and others you care deeply about and who care deeply about you.
In a way, health is the most important of the 4 criteria, for without good health, it is exceedingly difficult to attain the other 3 ? or enjoy them if you already have them.
Are there any items here that you do not agree with? Any missing that you would add?
