Recently I moved back to America and I had two goals in mind…
- Enjoy the clean and green life
- Kick some major butt
But even after moving back to America I still had a real bad case of wanderlust.
I would travel all the time and I would stay in new houses every month.
But this constant travel was not all in vain, I learned many things during my travels.
Specifically, I learned 3 things during my travels:
1. I learned the importance of money.
Like I said a billion, trillion times, you don’t know the true importance of money until a) you see people without it and b) you earn a lot of it.
That’s when the importance of money becomes clear.
2. I learned that you have to have experience so you have something to write about.
3. I learned that when you have enough of the experience, it’s time to do the work and you have to settle down in one place and do the work.
In the meantime, I want to share to share some of the lessons I learned during my time as a Ronin with wanderlust.
This video and article was written during the time of my wanderlust and it takes place in one of my favorite places I have ever stayed…
I now recall this beautiful home fondly as Heaven House.
I had many artistic breakthroughs during my 3 weeks at Heaven House.
Instead of giving you all 3 pieces of gold right away, now we concentrate on the most important.
The #1 Lesson That Every Determined Man, Woman and Child Needs To Know…
As told by Victor Pride from the roof of Heaven House…
(Below the video is the complete text.)
Hey, guys. Money doesn’t buy happiness.
And I’m feeling quite miserable in the mansion that I’m staying at.
So I’m going to go ahead and give all my money away to more deserving people, because it’s just making me miserable.
Said nobody ever.
Anybody Who Says Money Doesn’t Buy Happiness Never Had Nothing.
Anybody who ever says money doesn’t buy happiness never had nothing.
I didn’t understand how important money was when I had only lived in America and never left.
It didn’t hit me how important money was until I saw people in Asia who lived in shacks that they built out of trash.
And I’m not joking when I say they live in shacks built out of trash. They do.
So poor that they just don’t eat food so their kids can go to school. Or even poorer than that, their kids just don’t go to school.
So you ask those people if money buys happiness and they’ll laugh at you for even asking the question.
Money Doesn’t Buy Happiness…
If You Already Have It And Have Always Had It.
But anybody who says money doesn’t buy happiness never had nothing.
Go ahead and have nothing and then see how happy money makes you.
I posted a survey on my Twitter. A little trolling….
I said, “Would you feel happy if you could live anywhere in the world that you wanted to?”
Guess what everybody said? They said, “Yeah.”
Would it make you happier to be able to live anywhere you want?

Well, how can you live anywhere in the world that you want to?
Just have the money. That’s it.
I can go anywhere in the world to make myself feel happy because I put in the time and the effort, and I made the money to be able to do it.
Now I can stay in a beautiful place in southern California like this.
I can hit the road. Go live anywhere I want. And I’ll tell you…
Where You Live Makes A Huge Difference.
It makes a huge difference.
I just spent a month in Vegas and I hated it. Wasn’t happy at all.
One day back in SoCal and I’m glowing. Already feel fantastic.
That’s because it’s a better spot. It’s a more money spot. It’s a nicer spot, and I feel so nice being here.
And I can pretty much guarantee that anybody who lived in the house that I’m living in would feel great. It feels like heaven.
I’m referring to the house as Cloud 9 because it feels like heaven. When I leave the house I just want to be back.
The house is like a pretty girl. You just want to be in its presence.
You just want to be there. You just want to feel its warmth and its glow.
And when you leave you want to come back. And shacks don’t do that.
When you leave shacks you feel good. You don’t want to go back to the shack.
But you do want to go back to heaven. So…
If You Can Afford Heaven You Can Live In Heaven.
And If You Want Heaven Just Buy It
Because Money, Of Course, Buys Happiness.
Have a nice day.
Until next time.
