How Come Bad People Even Enjoy Success And Happiness?

You have seen it all, the world is unfair to genuine and hard-working people but that doesn’t mean they should give up in life. When bad people enjoy the labor of their fellow, they will surely pay for it. It’s time to understand why evil men are being successful.


Why The Bad Guys In The Lead?

Have you been wondering why bad people enjoy success? Don’t be alarmed because there are consequences and repercussions for all the wrongful things they do. It will taste bitter, shameful, and awful in the end. Never get worried or envy those who amass wealth for themselves through dubious means. I’m Hinduism, Some might say ‘Karma is coming for them.’ In Christianity, we say ‘You reap what you sow.’

The Bible even says:

“Do not fret when wicked men seem to succeed! Do not envy evildoers!
For they will quickly dry up like grass, and wither away like plants.” (Psalm 37:1 – 2)

In this post, I will talk about some of the commonest reasons why wicked men like a couple of guys I know have managed to make a lot of money and live luxurious lifestyles —but never truly feel happy.

Why on earth should wicked and ungrateful people feel happy at the expense of good/genuine people? The world has been unfair to many of us. The world now promotes lies, injustice, and evil deeds. Virtues such as honesty, kindness, trustworthiness, nobility, honor, compassion, etc. have become “foreign languages” in our societies; Only the wicked understand.

Bad people understand this foreign language —so they move about pursuing their evil deeds: greediness, suppression, lies, corruption, killing, extortion, etc. These are some of the things that bring happiness to them. Yes!, you will see them looking happy, but my question is; Are they really happy?

Their consciences are full of guilt. They live in fear of being exposed or losing their wealth. The very evil means they used to acquire huge monies or wealth haunts them every day.

Do Not Fret Because Of These Bad People

Let me tell you a story about a wicked armed robber who was caught and disgraced. In the news, I read, that a certain man who lives with her girlfriend was enjoying a good life together. It came to a point that the man arranged for their wedding ceremony. People were invited to be witnesses.

In the church, while the wedding was going on. The Police showed up and arrested the man. Investigation proved that he was an armed robber and even a day before his wedding, he got involved in robbery. The wife wept bitterly claiming she never knew her husband was a night worker robbing peoples’ wealth and money.

Bear in mind that behind their wealth, status, and happiness there is something stinky (a skeleton in the cupboard) These secrets are what I would like to share with you today. Should you even get worried seeing evil people happy?

When you come to some of the countries in West Africa, young guys who are hungry for money go in for ‘ritual monies’ to live their dream lives. Sadly some go to the extent of sacrificing innocent souls for the money.

In almost every country in the world, there are guys who rob, steal, extort, cheat, kill, etc to make money. This is the work of the devil living inside them.

The educated steal with their pens and the uneducated also steal with their hands. They try to cheat nature without thinking about the consequences and if they do so; they make themselves ready to face whatever becomes the outcome.

You must be different, work hard, be proud and content with your salary or profits. Keep working hard with wisdom for more…

Dare not compromise your values for anything evil. I hope I haven’t asked too much from you. Keep the good work up…honesty, patience, hard work, justice, etc.

In one of my recent posts, I talked about ‘where true happiness comes from‘ and as a matter of fact, ‘happiness is a choice‘ irrespective of your circumstance.

Look, let me tell you one interesting truth. The happiness of bad people is not ‘true happiness‘ so never wish to be any of them.

Here in Africa, most ritual moneymakers can’t sleep in their own mansions. The mansions become haunted houses. There are several crazy conditions given by the money deity to be obeyed. Most of them are harsh but must be met periodically.

Bad people are very dangerous, greedy, liars etc. and don't care about others

Failure to fulfill the required ritual ends in punishments such as madness, incurable diseases, death, etc.

Think about those big men; the politicians and businessmen. Not all of them are honest in their dealings. If they steal to build big mansions, establish companies, and make love to different women, you need not be jealous. Because the wicked will surely be punished.

To be truly wealthy and successful doesn’t come on a silver platter. It takes a lot of hard work. You have to be ready to sacrifice your time, energy, money, knowledge, etc with patience to reap the fruits of your labor. It also requires a lot of self-discipline.

For wicked people looking happy in the eye doesn’t mean they are happy. Wait till they tell you their stinky stories. Hmm… skeleton in the cupboard.

Evil People Are Like Madmen

Their lifestyles and the happiness they show are just a camouflage. I often compare bad people who are rich to madmen. Do you know why? Because the madman on the street looks very happy. His vitality moves about and smiles like he is the happiest person in the world.

He is mad in the head but looks very happy outside. That wicked rich man is just like that. Just like the saying, ‘not all that glitters is gold.’

The only visible difference between a madman and bad people is:

• A madman looks dirty outside
• A wicked rich man looks beautiful outside

Facts You Must Know About The Happiness And Success Of Bad People

1. Temporal Happiness:
Since they used evil means to acquire wealth, position, and money, their assets and happiness wouldn’t last long. They made use of shortcuts to reach heaven and in the same way, their wealth vanished in the short run.

“Do not be envious of evil men; neither desire to be with them.” (Proverbs 24:1)

2. Laziness:
With their high-ranking positions, these bad people never want to shed a sweat on work. They fail to toil for their wealth, yet they feel proud to live opulent lives. They show off for everyone to see their cars, mansions, clothes, and jewelry, and have even idolized their money. Not by surprise, the Bible has said, the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.

3. Jealousy:
Despite all their wealth and monies, they envy the little progress you make in life. Why?. It is something they couldn’t do. They know you are doing it right so anytime they set their eyes on you, their conscience judges them rightly. They fear you will be successful through your hard work, honesty, and self-discipline and certainly outrank them. These evil men may conspire against you.

Some Secrets Behind Their Success

Look around you and think about all the privileged and wealthy men in your community, workplace, church, etc. Not all of them attained that status through hard work. So there are a bunch of secrets. Their happiness is just a camouflage.

The Boss/ manager is so arrogant and disrespects his parents, employees, and everyone in his inner circle.

Consider a man whose laziness has compelled him to go in for ritual money. Yes, he has the money, wealth, concubines, cars, mansions, etc. Yet he cannot sleep at night, and he can not spend more than a certain amount of money a day(There is a quota for the amount he spends within a day).

“All good is hard. All evil is easy. Dying, losing, cheating, and mediocrity is easy. Stay away from easy.” – Scott Alexander

There are painful conditions attached to their happiness. They bought that happiness through evil means and they must surely pay for it. Happiness is free of charge. God doesn’t gift people and asks for anything in return but the Devil does.

If the wicked man’s happiness is not directly from the devil, then it is from unethical practices together with bribery and corruption. This is where our world is heading. Destruction. Money and silver don’t satisfy the thirst of bad people in our world. God loves honest and hard-working people. He Bless them to be successful.

Although, King Solomon said money answers all things. But we must understand this contextually. Money and wealth aren’t the sources of happiness, and so anyone whose happiness comes from money and evil practices isn’t really happy. He is sick like the madman on the street.
