Half and Happy

“Someone is happy with less than half of what you have.” So true.

In Radical, Platt teaches us that any household with an income of at least $50k USD is ahead of 99% of all people on Earth. And so…

“Someone is happy with less than half of what you have.”

Half of that $4 latte will feed five people for the day at the local food bank.

Half of that night at the movies will clothe a human in need.

Half of the annual expense of iTunes, Netflix, and other forms of entertainment will sponsor a Compassion child.

Half of that car would satisfy the tuition of the student who intellectually can, but financially cannot.

Half of that logo apparel that one “must have” is someone’s rent.

And yet…

“Someone is HAPPY with less than half of what you have.”

And so…

Indeed, money cannot buy you happiness.
