Big house or pot full of money may not make you as happy as working in a job of your liking, said billionaire investor Warren Buffett. Doing what one likes and getting associated with people with the same liking is the advice by the legendary investor to the people seeking to find a mantra to lead a happy life, he added. “What would you do to live a happier life — if you could live all over again? ”, CNBC reported him as saying at a lecture he gave at the University of Florida’s School of Business in 1998.  The people should work in the jobs they love, he noted at the same event. “You’re out of your mind if you keep taking jobs that you don’t like because you think it’ll look good on your resume”, he added.

Working with people you like is the key when it comes at leading happy lives, he added.
