His advice from Self Reliance, in regard to fortune, is that true fortune comes when you are doing what makes you truly happy and fulfilled...then the money will follow. The secret of fortune is joy in our hands, he writes. Meaning, that with money as the focus one cannot truly be successful, only wealthy.
