Forum Thread: Being Rich Won't Make You Happy

In the past, I was always looking for jobs that would make me rich. I studied everything, from investment banking, to entrepreneurship to being a youtuber. I didn't care what I had to do, I just wanted to be rich.

I felt like my life would suck, and I would probably be unhappy for the rest of my life, if I didn't get enough money. It was so incredibly important to me, and I do understand my thought process at the time, but I was just SO wrong. Let's say I had been an investment banker, where normal workweeks in the US are around 80-100 hours, which is insane. I wouldn't have been happy. Sure, I would have made a lot of money, but the job wasn't something I was even interested in, and I would have had almost no free time, to enjoy the money I had earned. It would have made me miserable, and I'm happy I realized this before I even started.
