While recent studies have supposedly shown that money can buy happiness, a new survey says more Americans believe success and happiness don’t involve money.

Here’s how those surveyed ranked their top contributors to success:

94% – being open to change

85% – good health

83% – finding time for the important things in life

81% – having a good marriage or relationship

81% – good management of personal finances

79% – having a good work-life balance

75% – having a job or career you love

Only 27 percent still believe that wealth determines success. (HuffingtonPost.com)
