Huff Post: Catching up with the happiest man in the world

posted by Randall

Alvin Wong, Happiest Man in America In 2010, at the request of the New York Times, Gallup named Alvin Wong the happiest man in the world.

He was described as a tall Asian American observant Jew who is 68, married with two kids, and a businessman living in Hawaii with an income of more than $120,000 a year.

The Huffington Post caught up with Alvin to see if Alvin was still happy.

“Everybody would ask me the same question,” he said. “What is the secret to your happiness? And at first it was amusing, but a part of this is really sad. People from all over the world called. ‘Give me the secret so that tonight I’m going to be very happy for the rest of my life.’ It struck me, first, as funny, but then as sad.”

Four years later, he is working with seniors for a home care agenc. He’s still smiling and yes, he’s still happy.

“Since being named the happiest man in America, I’ve done a lot of reading and research on this stuff,” he says. “I learned about myself … And I think, for my own sake, I’ve come to terms with what is the secret to my happiness. It’s attitude.”

You can read more about his thoughts on happiness and the most important thing in his life in the Huffington Post .
