Your answer would be yes, but not the same amount of happiness. This is true, in the material we find instant happiness and that too, it is not related to the thing, but that happiness is for achievement.
  • When we chance a dream to own something and we finally own it, we get instant happiness, and whenever we look at that material, it gives us a sense of fulfillment that brings happiness with it. But, this is not true happiness. The day when you feel sad, you won’t get emotional support from that material.
