Some people claim that there is a direct relationship between economic success and happiness, but I believe that happiness relies on variety of factors, rather than on economic success only. 

有些人认为经济的成功和个人幸福是直接挂钩的,而我认为一个人的幸福感是建立在很多原因之上的,当然包括经济上的成功。

People who have enough money can afford products and services that meet their basic needs, as well as enjoying leisure activities. Food and shelter can give them a sense of security, while having a holiday overseas can bring considerable pleasure. By contrast, disadvantaged people may feel stressed out and depressed  when they are not able to afford medical care or suffer from malnutrition

人们有了足够的金钱便有能力购买各种商品和服务以满足他们的需求,同时也可以享受娱乐活动带来额度乐趣。食物和住所可以给人们带来安全感,而出国度假能带来一定程度的愉悦感。相反,那些经济能力不好的人可能会因为付不起医疗费用或遭受营养不良的时候会感到失望和压力。

On the other hand, the alternative view is that people can feel happy if they can keep a strict division between work and social or family life. Their family and friends can provide companionship and emotional support whenever they are in trouble or unhappy. This cannot be achieved for those who give importance to material wealth but ignore social relationships

另一方面,有些人则认为如果人们可以很好的平衡工作和生活,那么他们同样也可以获得幸福。当人们遇到困难或者不开心的时候,家人和朋友可以给与陪伴和支持。 这种感觉不是那些重视物质生活而忽略社会关系的人能体会到的。

In my opinion, people who can work in a favorite job can find contentment. They are more likely to achieve their potential and realize their vision, so they may have a sense of fulfillment. For instance, some people choose to work as volunteers in disadvantaged areas and gain pleasure from helping vulnerable members of community, although these jobs are either unpaid or low-paid.

在我看来,人们能找到一份自己喜欢的工作也能获得幸福。 他们更有可能发挥他们的潜能并实现梦想, 因此他们会有一种强烈的成就感。 举例来说,有些人选择在一些贫困的社区做义工也可以获得愉悦感,尽管这些工作的报酬很低,有时候甚至没有回报。
