Transcript of Money cant buy happiness

Money can´t buy happiness
Imagine this.. One day a genie appears in front of your house and tell´s you he is going to conceive you one wish. You start thinking in the best wish, the one that is going to change your life, so that´s pretty easy... money! But, is money the answer to all of your problems? Well, maybe... but are you sure?


In the world we live, people tend to think money is the answer to all of their problems, but is this true? I mean, is money really that important in someone´s life? Well, it’s true it helps you pay taxes, school, sometimes transport, your home and even your life insurance. But if you lacked of it, would your life be miserable? Your answer to the question might probably be yes, my life would be definitely miserable, but is becoming millionaire going to change things? Yeah, probably the first year, or the first two, or even the rest of your life, but there must be a point where you think on what is really important: your happiness.
I started thinking about the importance of happiness since long time ago, but the other day I saw a video related with not only happiness, but the importance it had with a decision that involved a million dollars. Jerome Jarre, the protagonist of the video, has the chance of being paid with one million dollars for a year, and for surprise of many, he said no.
But the point of talking about this is the reason why he decided to drop the fact of becoming a millionaire, and it was an interesting question:
“Imagine Jerome, you´re 99 years old and you´re on your deathbed, all of a sudden you have the chance to come back to right now, what would you do?
” In his 5 min video he explains from his point of view the importance of being happy, and the lack of importance money has to do with it.
