You know that saying, "money can't buy happiness." Well, it's true.

According to U.S. News and World Report, seeking more money can actually make you less happy. Instead of focusing completely on finances, make sure you take the time to celebrate your own personal growth, like what you've learned, who you've connected with, and how you've improved yourself.

Smile More In The Office
