I don’t know whether the money you accumulate will give your more happiness. What I do believe is your expected returns will likely be higher and the decision about the impact of your net worth on your happiness will be yours alone to make.
Manipulating and deceiving others is the antithesis of Ask. Ask is for those who want to deepen their relationships in a sincere way. You won’t find happiness misusing it to extract a short-term advantage.
The most common question I’m asked is: Is it different this time?
I don’t think that’s the right question. A better question might be, Am I going to be okay? This question requires an analysis of both health and financial issues.
