What would it take to make you the happiest person in the world? - could it be love, money, health, world acclaim -or something else? . There are several things in life which could make me very happy - but not necessarily the happiest person - like nature, falling in love, family, reasonably good health etc. I would be the happiest person in the world if these three things were possible : (1) World peace (2) That my sister's death last year was just a dream - I would awaken and find that she is alive and well. (3) To be blessed with an immune system which would make it extremely difficult for me to get diseases or other illnesses. Can you think of one or more things which could make you the happiest person?

Love among my family is the most thing I've ever wanted. Then money to provide them happiness on what they need and what they want.

Money can get us some of the things we want for added happiness.

I agree. There are supposed to be three essential needs of man: food, clothing, and shelter. All of it can now be obtain having money and also, having zero balance in your wallet means you can get nothing.

A world peace would not make weaponry sellers happy and would left a lot of people unemployed, in the army and among its suppliers, so I do not think we will see that soon. I think that everybody would agree with your following points. As I am aging a lot of people are disappearing around me, family and friends, and each disappearance leaves a hole. And as I am aging I would also be happy to know that there is a cure for a disease like Alzheimer, which is frightening. What else would make me happy ? I guess I am happy most of the time, despite of the troubles I can have like anybody else. The main error when it comes to happiness is to search it in external goods, when it has to be searched inside us.

I'm a pretty happy and very blessed person so there isn't much more that I need. I like your world peace and it would be wonderful if that were possible. Sorry about your sister and I can understand that this would be on your happy list.

Number one on my list would be my children's salvation. That would make me the happiest person in the world. After that, to be completely healthy once again and off all medication. Then it would be that my books would sell and I would do well as an author.

With life's stresses total happiness can be difficult to achieve- and plain happiness can be fleeting. You can start your day singing - get into a line of traffic and the song changes. Okay, I thought I had mentioned that.

I am happy whenever I am alone. I ca do all things that I want without anyone critiquing me. I'll be the happiest person in the world, when I am alone in an Island with all the things that I want and no one can ever come to my Island.

You are the happy loner. Won't you miss the sound of another person's voice? or the radio and television will be enough?

I don't think that I will miss any voice other that voices in video games.

I know this is going to sound callous @Kandae11 , but about $300 in my checking account. I'm already $200 in the hole and it ain't even the middle of the month.

I know, I know - money is needed for our survival in the world as it is . A person can't be very happy with the constant worry over unpaid bills.

@Kandae11 And it's still another 3 years before my house and property are paid off and a bank loan. Geez, that puts me at 69 years old. I just hope I make it that long.

I do not ever believe I could be the happiest person in the world. I would settle for not having to worry about things and have better health and enough money so we can be more than comfortable and could retire. I do not believe I ever could retire.

I control my happy, but can't control my circumstances. So I will continue being thankful and grateful for every blessing in my life, big or small and remind myself that things could always be worse, and for some they are.

I think connection and the feeling like people cared..about what happened to me. I don't get that from too many people honestly. PS..I am very sorry about your sister! I would be devastated if something happened to mine.

Love is truly needed in anyone's life and so money which is of course one of the major thing in our life. However, money will not guarantee a happiness. Sometime more love can gives us stress and frustration. As far as I am concern, I have always missed a back up support in my life. It would make me much more happier if I get back up support where I can freely and without much stress do my work and achieve my goal.
