    Happiness is not relying on your financial benefit, but also your right relationship with correct people. Our dependency on God and His word is the main factor that counts. Try to live rightfully, no matter you encounter tough time in your activity. Unsettled living produces inconsistent lifestyle.

    Be careful with this one. It seems to be equating financial success with happiness. And honestly, how many stockbrokers have you soon looking so relaxed and happy? Nothing wrong with ambition, everything wrong with our primary motive being about financial success – I think this clip only works within the wider context of the movie – his son etc.
