Hello there. Whether we are happy or not, it really depends on our mentality and expectation. Usually, we will feel happy if things turn out better than expected and we will feel sad if things turn out worse than expected. The key to being happy is to expect little and give a lot. I believe this is true. The less we expect, the less we feel disappointed. Joy is also often derived from giving. =D Different people have different purpose and goals in life. If our goal is to be rich and have lots of money, when our goal is not reached, we will inevitably feel unhappy. However, if our goal is just to be of service to others, even if we have no money, it does not matter. So long as we can help other people, we will be happy.

In my opinion you need money to be happy. I don't mean lots of money but enough to not have the stress of not being able to afford the simple things in life. It's pretty hard for the homeless people to be happy, because they don't have the money to pay for a home. Or the people who have to go to the soup kitchens to get a meal. If they had money they would be happy.
