GOOD MORNING NEWS: Happiness Leads to More Wealth

 Money not only makes you happy. But the flipside is just as true: Happiness makes you wealthier.

A social study reveals that people who are above-normal on the happiness scale are also above-average wage earners. Whether smart or not, tall or short, self-confident or insecure, happier people earned bigger paychecks

Happy high school students become college graduates, and early hires, who quickly climb the promotional ladder. Researchers conducted a long-term study – of over 10,000 Americans -- starting at the teenage years and discovered that happiness meant more wealth by age 29.
