“If we wish to be wealthy, we must study wealth, and if we wish to be happy we must study happiness. The combination of these two studies creates the aura that we call lifestyle.
“Most people do not make happiness and wealth a study. Their plan for finding happiness consists of going through the day with their fingers crossed, hoping that somehow, something will work out that will make them happy. But happiness is an art, not an accident. It is not something that falls out of the sky. Happiness–that unique emotion that we mistakenly believe comes to us only when we have become successful–must precede the achievement of success. Happiness is as much a cause of success as it is a result of success, and we can begin to experience happiness whenever we wish, regardless of our current circumstances.”-Jim Rohn, The Five Major Pieces of the Life Puzzle
