“Money doesn’t make you happy, but being happy does make you money” – Me (in a conversation with Tenzin)
The quote is about how people naturally gravitate towards happy individuals. People are attracted by the laughter, the jokes and the enthusiasm of others, because it makes them, in turn, feel happier. Thus, the happy individual is granted more favours and opportunities by the people he interacts with than an unhappy individual, potentially resulting in more money. In this line of happiness is like a currency.
