Surprise: Fame and fortunes don’t make you happy

From AM New York:

Researchers followed 150 graduates from the University of Rochester and Knox College in Illinois for two years and assessed their satisfaction with life, self-esteem and relationships. Participants also rated their levels of anxiety, stress and physical ailments like headaches.

Graduates hungry for wealth, glamour or fame — and achieved those goals — were the most anxious and unhappy, researchers found. On the flip side, those who developed strong relationships and a sense of community felt less stressed and more self-assure.
