lol peace of mind comes when you have money in you account. So to be happy I need peace of mind and for that i need money.Money is not the only factor but it is the primary factor for attaining peace of mind .Everything else is secondary. The satisfaction and fulfillment of your desires ae few others which can lead to peace of mind. What makes you happy..............

I feel happy when I get paid for something I've written. However small the payment, I know I've earned it by my own efforts, using my own abilities. I don't need more money that I can spend on my basic needs to make me happy. I'm not sure I know what peace of mind is, but I think I get that when I go to a beautiful place, and when I'm surrounded by nature. Happiness is a complete mystery to me. It often comes when I least expect it, for no reason at all. I just feel happy because of where I am or who I'm with or what I'm doing. Happiness is not important to me in life. I enjoy the challenges that come with the difficulties I have to face in life. I will feel more satisfaction at overcoming problems and surviving the bad times, than I would if I was happy all the time.

Everybody likes it when we earn for ourselves, people laugh at me when they see me working hard here at mylot for 10-20 dollars. 10 dollars is just 450 Rupees in Indian currency and fe of my friends and relatives earn that every minute but waht they fail to understand is that I am getting paid for my effort and they are earning from their family business. I know they feel very rich and proud but they miss the satisfaction we derive when we get paid for our own work. They might be making plenty of money but they miss that extra satisfaction i derive when i get paid every 12 or 13 of the following month from mylot or any other site

you are practically correct. when you have money, you get peace of mind because you will be able to settle your bills, debts etc therefore you will be worry free so therefore you will have peace of mind. when you have money or stable, everything else follows but there are things that money just cant buy.

As a Christian, I have a different point of view. Let me share it with you anyway. I also need money just like everyone else and it really helps to give us piece of mind but I believe we should not forget God who is the most important of all. It's the first and the great commandment for us Christians. Proof: Matthew 22:37-38 [37] Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. [38] This is the first and great commandment. Our lord has a pronouncement that I personally believe (by personal experience). Matthew 6:31-34 [31] Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? [32] (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. [33] But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. [34] Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

What you said is partially right , money is necessary in life but money is not only things necessary in life.. people who are wealthier are not happy , hope you know this very well , they might lose peace at home or they must be patients for chronic disease , they may be separated from their loved ones.. so there are so many things which prevent wealthier people from being happy.So to have peace of mind and stay happier it can be only from GOD.People who are not that rich are happier and has peace of mind even more than any wealthier people , there are some who feel but then 90% are happy :) Happiness is not totally realted to money that is what i want to conclude it depends on so many things which should be experienced personally

Peace of mind! I mean, as of now, there's enough money for me to be content, and I'm not spoiled, nor do I really want expensive things. Why should other people make my happiness in a factory? I make my own happiness! Letting how much money you have control your happiness is to lose control of everything!

i don't think that if you have enough money you can still be contended with it but you will still want more and more and this will destroy your peace and thats how i look at it. so, i am happy with the peace of mind and don't worry about the money it will come by itself once you are satisfied by whatever you have and God will also bless with more...

I agree with that. money can actually give you peace o mind. Although you can't actually be happy with money alone, it's tool you use for being one. But maybe I guess if you don't have anything to settle, you don't have to buy food, you don't have to pay for your apartment an all, you can have peace of mind even without money, hehe..
