A person who is always happy, succeeds.—Sefer Hamiddos, The Book of Attributes (The Aleph-Bet Book)
People believe that when they become “successful”, then they’ll be happy.
Rebbe Nachman of Breslov says the opposite is true. Being joyful, encouraging yourself to be happy, looking for things to feel positive about—these are what lead to success.
If we look at successful people, some are happy, many are not. That’s proof that success does not necessarily lead to happiness.
