Social Connections

 

A lot people believe if they just have a little more money all will be well. Even extremely wealthy people tend to believe this. They all think they need a little bit more.

These people don’t realize that what makes people happy (as long as they have a basic minimum of money and resources) is genuine social connections.  This is what provides fulfilling lives, not more money. Most of us have plenty of money (except me, I need a lot more of course). Many of us have insufficient social connections, or at least insufficient quality of social connections. We should work on improving the quality of our social connections, less on earning more money. Those who have these are the lucky people. Not the wealthy people.
