We all heard of it before that money can’t buy happiness, but it is better to cry in a Lamborghini than on a bus.
Yet, too many people believe and think that by acquiring material possessions and luxury gives you happiness…
Yet, it could be true or not, which will depend on each individual!
Now one thing I know for sure that it might only bring us TEMPORARY happiness but not true fulfilled happiness and that is because after we get whatever that material stuff might be that we most want, we see that this is not it and things no longer make us happy.
But if you’re already a happy person that doesn’t look for luxury to make you happy, then sure, it could make you even happier since you’re not relying on it but only adding to your experiences in life!
Can you see what I’m trying to show you here?
However, we should never take it for granted! If we rely on those for our own happiness, and if we were to lose it, we lose our happiness as well!
Seeking happiness in material things is a sure way of being unhappy. – Pope Francis
So why not get into deep depth to find out more about material possessions and if brings us true happiness or not… Read along to read more!
What Are Material Possessions? – Luxury
It is basically physical liabilities things that we look to buy on a regular basis such as nice clothes, newest sports car, luxury boat, gold jewelry, a new house, new furniture, most recently launched cellphone, fancy dinner, etc – you name it.
Material possessions are luxury stuffs that you spend your hardworking money on and expect to make you feel better or make your life better!
Sure, there is one thing that we’re missing out which is if causes an addiction?
And the answer is a big YES!
Believe it or not, there are many people who have this shopping craving habit that could be an unhealthy addiction if you don’t know how to control it.
I mean, I have seen people that as soon as they get some type of money, they go right into looking for things to shop and that’s even if they don’t even need it…
And the reason why is that they believe that luxury and material things will give them more pleasure, joy, and happiness to “fulfilled and complete their lives“!
Sure, it can give you joy but not true happiness, and I’m going to tell you why!
Why Luxury and Material Things Give Temporary Happiness?
Well, the very first reason why possessions only give us temporary happiness is that they only last a very short amount of time!
That’s right, we all should be aware that nothing on this Earth is forever.
You might buy that expensive car today that you can’t even afford it and sooner or later, you would have to get rid of it whether if it’s going straight to debt or you sell it because it no longer makes you “happy”. The same goes for clothes, the new iPhone, and all the material things as they all come and go!
Especially that expensive dinner, which only lasts for that single moment!
By the next day, you’ll probably feel overwhelming to know that you spent a crazy amount of money on a special dinner that you could have saved up and invested in something that would make you more money than ever.
Therefore, these types of things give you temporary joy and pleasure, not real happiness since it fades away after some time.
Not to mention, it’s like a cycle as the more material luxury things you tend to buy, the more you want to buy more kinds of stuff and that is because there will always be something recently launched that you would also desire to buy.
Happiness is not about collecting material things or collecting beautiful memories. It’s about having a deep feeling of contentment.
Plus, most of the materialistic people are only trying to impress others, but not really themselves, which it would be shocking to know that people are not really impressed with what you got.
Sure, at that right moment, they might find it interesting, like it, be obsessed about it and all that, but that’s about it!
The last reason why material possessions may not make you truly happy is that the more you have, the more you have to spend to maintain, especially if that’s an expensive car or that big house that you bought.
Instead of Focusing on Buying Luxury, Buy This!
You know, I used to be a materialistic person several years ago and what I have to say is that it ONLY made me temporary happy at that exact moment, which the moment I no longer had any of that or as time went by, it completely fade it away and left me feeling worse than before buying the luxury stuffs since all I did was waste a lot of money based on my own experiences.
However, I am fortunate enough to have learned from both experience and knowledge which what I have to say is that we shouldn’t focus on buying any material possessions especially if we’re looking to make ourselves happier.
Instead I highly recommend and what I do is invest that truly makes me happy!
And I’m not saying investing into only business purposes to make more cash, sure that is one way but I’m also saying investing in yourself such as buying yourself new books to learn more, buying yourself a vacation with family and friends since memories last forever, and putting money to work for you.

But if you’re truly a materialistic person, then you MUST put all your money into investments that will make you more and more passive income flows and that way, you will never be left out with zero money and you’ll also be able to buy all the material and luxury things that you desire along with having the financial freedom that you would want.
How does that sound?
YES, I would rather do that then to spend all of my money in material possessions and not have any income flows coming in every month and therefore, lose all of that money, be in debt and no “happiness” whatsoever.
Can you see what I’m showing you here?
Contentment is natural wealth, luxury is artificial poverty. – Socrates
This is golden information that not too many people are truly aware of it! To me, true happiness does not involve money, and can’t buy it! True happiness comes from within.
