There are different opinions of how to obtain a happy life. When talking about happiness, some people emphasize the element of money, others stress on health, and still others attribute happiness to personal intelligence and even to political power.
A millionaire may say that he is unhappy because he is suffering from permanent sickness. A poor farmer may claim that he is quite happy. To him, happiness simply means good health and having a good family. Religious people are believed to be happy ones as they have got peaceful minds. They are trying to seek eternal happiness in another world.
In my opinion, happiness depends on our physical and mental life. When we have enough money, good health and peaceful minds, we are sure to be happy. However, a person only has real happiness when he is satisfied with what he is possessing and willing to share his happiness with the other people who are unlucky.
