A recent Gallup poll, quoted in The Atlantic, found that well-being rises with income at all levels of income, across countries. In other words, as the article's title states, the poll proves that Yes, Money Does Buy Happiness.
《亚特兰大报》刊登了一项最近的盖洛普民意测验,结果显示在各个国家,不论收入水平,人们的幸福感都随着收入的提高而上升。换句话说,就像那篇文章的标题所说的,这项调查证明了是的,金钱可以买来幸福。 www.verywen.com

Except that it doesn't prove that at all. What the study actually discovered was a strong correlation between each nation's real GDP per capita and the sense of well-being among those nation's citizens.
而事实上这项调查根本不能证明这一点。这项研究发现的其实是根据调查那些国家的公民,每个国家真实的人均GDP和幸福感之间存在强烈的相关性。 美文网

Correlation isn't causation. The data could just as easily be interpreted the other way around: that happiness creates wealth. What's most likely, though, is that happiness and wealth are part of a cycle, each one creating more of the other.
相关性并不是因果关系。这些数据也可以很容易地被解读成另一种意思:幸福创造了财富。而最有可能的是,幸福和财富是一个循环,二者可以相互创造。 verywen.com

And that's the reason for this post. Assuming you want to create both wealth and happiness for yourself and those around you, you have two approaches: wait until you're wealthy to be happy, or become more happy now and thereby create more wealth.
这就是为什么我要写这篇文章。假设你想为你自己和身边的人创造财富和幸福,你有两种途径:等到你变得富有,然后就会幸福了。或者现在让自己更幸福,然后就能创造更多财富。 美文网

I maintain that, in today's economy, it's easier to start with the happiness, because unlike wealth (which takes time to accumulate), you can increase the amount of happiness in your life within minutes, simply by taking more notice of things that make you happy.
我坚持认为,在今天的经济环境下,从创造幸福开始会更容易一些,因为和财富不同(财富需要时间积累),你在几分钟之内就可以提高自己的幸福感,你只需要留意那些让你可以快乐的东西。
