  • 'I'm wealthy because I'm happy': Billionaire Richard Branson claims he owes his success to being content
  • Billionaire British Tycoon Richard Branson,65, says he's not happy because he's rich but rather he's rich because he's happy. He says his hugely successful empire is the result of his cheery state of mind.
    'I know I’m fortunate to live an extraordinary life and that most people would assume my business success, and the wealth that comes with it, have brought me happiness. But they haven’t - in fact it’s the reverse. I am successful, wealthy and connected because I am happy.' he wrote on his blog

    In the write up, Branson encouraged readers not to focus on tasks but remember they are human beings rather than 'human doings'.
    "Kids are often asked: "What do you want to be when you grow up?" The world expects grandiose aspirations: "I want to be a writer, a doctor, the prime minister." 'They’re told: go to school, go to college, get a job, get married and then you’ll be happy.  But that’s all about doing, not being – and while doing will bring you moments of joy, it won’t necessarily reward you with lasting happiness.
    'Stop and breathe. Be healthy. Be around your friends and family. Be there for someone, and let someone be there for you. Be bold. Just be for a minute.
