Author Chris Vaca found that achieving, what he calls the Tri-Fecta of life, is the way to have true happiness, because when you hit all three, everything else in life seems to fall into place. It is also important to achieve them in the correct order, a healthy mind, body and pocket, because one will not work without the other. For instance, having a healthy pocket, (money) is meaningless without a healthy body.
Chris is sixty-two years old and it took him losing everything to learn this lesson: “Like many, I always thought that having money would make me a happy person, but money does not necessarily mean happiness, although it definitely helps the situation. Although my number one goal after losing everything was money, I found that just pursuing money in life was an empty life.”
