Do Achievements make you Happy?

Most for us are tuned to ignore whatever we have achieved and to feel unhappy about whatever we have not achieved.

In the last stage of Miss Universe beauty pageant there are three finalists left on stage. The judges announce the name of the Second Runner-up. Now there are two finalists left, one of them would be crowned Miss Universe. The judges announce the name of the First Runner-up. Now there is only one finalist remaining, and she is crowned Miss Universe.

While walking away from the stage should the First Runner-up feel Happy or Sad?

Surprisingly most people tell me that she should be feeling sad at losing the crown. But shouldn't she be feeling happy for being the second most beautiful woman in the Universe?
