Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak says his simple formula for a successful life is his happiness, something he discovered when he was 20-years-old.
'If I died and had all this wealth and yachts and all this stuff, would I be as happy as when I laugh? And I thought about pranks I played and jokes I had told and music I would hear that would make me smile, and I came up with my formula that life is about happiness,' CNBC reported.
Wozniak, who is estimated to be worth around $100 million today, said the key is to decrease the amount of sadness in your life. 'How do you get rid of the frowns? I worked on that,' Wozniak said.
'Don't care that much that you are going to frown. Let things happen. Things do go badly in life and just say, "Hey, my car got scratched, I will fix it,"' he explained.
Wozniak, who famously goes as Woz, said there is no point arguing, complaining or blaming others, as it tends to only upset you. 'And don't argue. Don't argue! You don't win an argument, you just walk away unhappy,' Wozniak said.
'This kept me so happy, to this day. My mind just kind of floats in a state of happiness and I just don't really have a lot of always being upset,' he continued.
Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs founded Apple Computers in 1976 with Ronald Wayne.
