Money Doesn’t Make You Happy
You may or may not recognize the name Tom Shadyac. He is a successful Hollywood director (The Nutty Professor and Bruce Almighty).
Like many celebrities, as his wealth grew he bought into the idea of the status wealthy living. He had the mansion (17,000 square feet) the fancy cars, the private jet, and invitations to extravagant parties. But, he wasn’t happy.
I was standing in the house that my culture had taught me was a measure of the good life. I was struck with one very clear, very strange feeling: I was no happier.
And he did it big. He went from living in his 17,000 square foot mansion to living in a 1,000 square foot mobile home.
Take a peak at the modest mobile home that he lives in now.
