You don’t have to be successful to be happy, but if you’re happy then consider that a success. Here are five things successful people don’t do to have both. We all want to be successful. Many of us work hard for more money, status, and/or visibility assuming it will lead to the good life. While more of this stuff might mean more “success,” it can come at a great cost.
