Do you believe that the happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything? What do you think is their secret to happiness?

Yes,the happiest people doesnot have the best of everything.But they make the best with what they have.Especially they are contended with what they have.That is the main reason.

I consider myselves as the happiest person in the world because i believe in this thing: 1. Good experiences makes u happy 2. Bad experience will teach you not to have them again resulting in good experience.

I think true happiness equates to having love in their lives. You don't necessarily need a lot of money to feely lucky and happy. It would be nice to have all you need but if you don't have someone to share it with it is hardly worth it is it?

I think they find contentment in what they have, opposed to what they dont have. They cherish the happy moments and treasure the people that care for them. They usually are not driven by material possesions.

Simple and brief, and straight to the point! You're still young but it's good you have the formula -- keep that in mind always, even when you reach the top of fame and glory.

I don't know the secret to happiness, but I do agree that the people who are unhappy already have everything they could want and therefore, have no real goals left. It's not whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game. The happiest people have goals and are working towards them. Even happier are those who have a partner with similar goals to work with and share their experiences and ideas with.

That's right. I know of lots of rich people who don't know anymore what to do with their money, and they refuse to part with it, not realizing it could be a means to happiness if they knew how to use it. They say poor people eat to live, while rich people live to eat.

"Happiness is just a state of mind!" This is what I my school principal used to say! And until a certain period of time I used to believe in that.I used to think I can be happy whenever I choose to be and yes I was always happy when I wanted to be and could make others around me smile too But of late I am not happy no matter how hard I am trying to be happy or make my self happy. Somebody's Love is the missing element in my life right now and I don't think I can be happy ever again without him. secret of happiness...don't know but I feel happy when I Love someone,be it a litle kid or anyone.I fell happy when I am able to Love some one selflessly

Since you are still young the happiness you know for now is all concentrated on your bf. As time goes by and as you grow older you will find that there are many other sources of happiness and it's all up to you to find them. Have a love-filled 2007!

The happiest people are those who are among the people they love and who loves them back.

Right! Well sometimes it takes a calamity for people to realize what the meaning of love and loving is, and especially during times of crisis we are able to open our eyes. Thanks for your comment.

Certainly, the happiest person is not the guy who's everything that he wants or dreams about. He's the guy who's able to sleep nights without any worries worrying him. He sees happiness and good in everything that he does. He may not be the most successful guy, but he certainly is among the happier ones.

some people fake happiness. but it's not worth it. for me, real happiness is when you get satisfaction in life. when you are contented and grateful to where you are at the moment. happiness is sometimes not easy to earn. but it's worth it!

I believe that and they're happy because they're happy with the little that they have.

hamster - hamster will make you smile he is really cute
I think that people are only as happy as they will allow themselves to be its like a song that Dolly Pardon done about a coat of many colors at the very end she says one is only poor if they choose to be so I think the same principal applies on happiness I am in a bad way but I am happy.I hope you have a wonderful day.

Yea I believe that...Being truly happy in my opinion isnt about having material things or money or the most friends etc etc..its about having true peace and contentment within yourself, your character and so on... in fact I think having "stuff" actually prevents us from finding true absolute happiness..and keep in mind that "stuff" isnt just house, car, brand name clothes, lots of friends, great job etc etc..it also includes technology, vehicles, skyscraper building, ATMs and so on....

the people who satisfied with what they are having, the people who are satisfied with their earnings or with their status live happily.

Inner peace is the secret to happiness! If you are in control of your innermost feelings of inner peace, you are in control of yourself. We can't control external forces, including other people or circumstances, but as long as we control ourselves and maintain inner peace, happiness can exist.

First happiness can't be measured by monetary value which most of people do assume. Real happiness comes from having a peace of mind when you're doing good you'll feel good and that what makes everyone happy.

Be Happy - Be Happy
The most happiest people is not the one possessing the best of everything but they are the one who just make the most of everything that comes along their way. They are also someone who is always with a thankful heart for what they have now.
