I just saw an advertisement and it says.. Happiness is when you WIN $250,000!!! Now that got me thinking. Is that REALLY happiness? Or is that what we think we can get happiness with... So what is happiness to you? For me, i'd be happy if i got $250K because with this money, i can buy things i want and like.

everyone will be happy if we could get a lot of money, but money which many can not guarantee happiness. happiness because money will not last long. if the money has run out of happiness will be lost. who can make me happy is when life is filled with affection.

It's not my form of happiness. The very first thing that happens when you win is the government takes a cut for taxes, then the relatives start showing up for their cut and you get more and more close friends that just want a few dollars, but the time all this is finished you're back in debit because you just couldn't say no even after you ran out of winnings. Blessings and hope someone else wins.

Money cannot buy happiness, and unfortunately if you have a lot of money a lot of people may try to take advantage of it. That being said having a lot of money can buy the things you want and make things easier as you will always have bills paid on time without worry. In my experience if I won $250,000 I would be very happy just because it would alleviate worries.

Many things can make us happy like money. In this case, they just presented one. Happiness can be achieved through many ways. It could be success, happiness of a loved one, etc. It's different for every individual.
