Comment on the following statement:
| Only people who earn a lot of money are successful. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that only rich people are successful, whereas others think about success differently. Success for them means good family, loyal friends, good health and so on.
I think that not only people who make a lot of money can be called successful. First of all there are a lot of different definitions of success. I consider successful those who have good health, loving family, reliable friends and then perhaps a lot of money. Second, I would also call happy people successful. All those listed above things should make a person happy.
At the same time there are people who think that if people have a lot of money they can buy whatever they want. They can get the best medical treatment, people will be attracted to them.
Well, having money one can allow a lot of things, however, I would not call them successful if they are not happy. The ability to buy things or afford many quality services cannot make a person really happy. Only warmhearted people around can gives a feeling of success and happiness that is impossible just to buy.
In conclusion, I would like to say that money is thought to be a primary measure of success by a lot of people. Nevertheless, if we investigate the subject thoroughly we will see that money is a good thing to have but it is not enough to be the only measure of success in life. There are many more valuable things that one should be eager to obtain.
In conclusion, I would like to say that there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight it seems that those people who make a lot of money are successful but in actual fact there are other even more important values of peoples’ lives namely love, family, friends and so on. Thus, I strongly believe that money is not only measure of success.
