Elon Musk is miserable these days.
The founder of SpaceX and Tesla should have it all but he speaks publicly of depression, a nervous breakdown and the inability to sleep.
Happiness comes from realizing how fortunate you are.
A grateful person is rarely unhappy.
They find ways to see even small things – and especially small things – as reasons to be happy.
All Elon Musk’s money cannot make him happy because material things are transient flowing in and out of our lives.
Walking out of a breast care mammogram grateful for another period ahead of good health is the real currency not the amount of money in the bank.
Being poor can cause unhappiness but the pursuit of money usually causes the same feeling.
The only way to be truly rich is to be eternally grateful.
