Rich people are not really happy. Is that just something poor or middle class people say to feel better about their current condition Personally I've never ran into a rich person without a smile on their face, and I have never ran into one in a unelegant argument. with one another. Rich poeple get up every morning and buy the things the working class creates. The poor just sob about not being rich

The truth is that money and wealth provides much for fulfilling most of the material needs . It also provides you the luxuries .In addition to the material needs and luxuries it gives you a sense security .The certainty that expensive treatment will also be possible for you or your loved ones to undergo in case of such unfortunate occurences is also a happy fact for the rich .But money cannot gurantee life . The want of all the above is one of the main causes for the unhappyness of the poor and lower middle class people. But equally true is the fact that there are many sources of happyness that money alone can not buy .Because, these sources of happyness lie within you . But it is also true that both the rich and the poor are equally oblivious of this inner source of happyness . Thus this type of happyness elude everyone irrespective of economic or social status . It is also a fact that if for the rich money and wealth stand in the way to recognising this inner source of happyness, for the poor the jealousy towards the rich also do the same . That is why both the rich and the poor are unhappy in today's world .

Most of the rich are hardworking people. They are humble, smart, calculative, thrifty and know themselves best. Most make their way up from failures and are happy and satisfied where they stands in society after what they gone through in life. So those who are not satisfy please learn from them.
