Success or Happiness – What comes first?

Happiness is the key to success..

Happiness is the key to success..


I have always believed that we are responsible for our own feelings. If we are sad, it’s because more often than not, we ourselves tend to think about the unhappy and depressing things in life rather than appreciating the happy moments.

If we are happy and satisfied with our lives, there are more chances for us to succeed and achieve our goals and dreams. A happy mind and soul is a perfect ingredient for success.

Success should be considered as a result of happiness rather than the other way round since the barometer for success changes from time to time.

Book Review: Brutal


  1. Well said and I agree with you there. Happiness is indeed the key to success.

      Totally Parul :). Our happiness (key) can open many doors in life :D.

  2. Agree with this Aseem and we are responsible to push ourselves towards happiness in life. Unhappy in a job or situation, make an effort to get something better. Happiness leads the way and ultimately success will follow.

      Totally agree with you Vishal. So many of us just stay put thinking that our lives are such a mess and keep cribbing about everything around. Do we even realize that if we try to be happy, there’s so much we can do. But sadly, cribbing is an easy alternative, isn’t it?

  3. Excellent point!

    Good luck with NaBloPoMo – I did it in November 2014 (along with NaNoWriMo) and it was a great way to rekindle my love of blogging.

      Thanks Traci :). Yeah NaBloPoMo gives a lovely chance to interact with bloggers from all over the globe and read various interesting perspectives on a variety of topics. Welcome to my blog :D.

    I definitely think this is true when we’re talking about general dissatisfaction with life (vs. situational or chemical depression). The goal line for “success” is always changing so it’s dangerous to make it the key to happiness.

      Thanks Mel for stopping by. Totally agree with your point that the goal line for success always keeps changing :).
