Securing a job today would change my whole life including happiness for tomorrow.

I very much agree with the premise of this article. However:

"Other factors that are associated with happiness include contributing to the lives of others, a good relationship with a spouse, control over one’s life and decisions, time for leisure, spirituality or religion, and the holiday periods"

much of that requires that one be financially secure. Especially control over your life's decisions and time for leisure. Which is where I believe religion comes in to close the gap for believers. If they can believe someone else, preferably with their best interest in mind, is in control then they have satisfied that need without the benefit of money.
