Happiness or Success

Hello Honeybees,

I have been debating this question: What do I want more out of life happiness or success?

Is this an either or?

Can I not have both?

IF I HAD to choose between the two I would choose HAPPINESS.

Success does not guarantee happiness!  You can be successful at a lot of things but they might not make you happy.  There are a lot of people that are extremely successful in their chosen career but are not happy at all. The money is good and the title is impressive but happy…NOPE.   You might be successful in college, making the grades, but you might not be happy. We all know someone who graduated from college but are not happy because they picked a safe major. You know the major that would ensure that they found a “good job” after graduation but it stifled their natural creativity.

When I think of happiness I think of people, places and things that put a smile on my face People, places and things that make my heart all warm and fuzzy.


For me happiness is seeing my children smile, or when they give me a hug & say I Love You.  Happiness is having a career that lets me make a difference in the community.  Happiness is knowing that I am blessed.  Happiness is having an amazing support system of family & friends.

So YES I choose Happiness over Success and guess what…..

That makes ME happy

What makes you happy?

  1. I love this post I think in order to be successful you have to be happy, if you aren’t happy is it really success?
