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 you have a lot of money you can buy whatever you want. You can get the best medical treatment, people will be attracted to you and it all gives you the feeling of success and happiness.
In my opinion these people have a point. Having money one can allow a lot of things. A lot of people call such people successful. However, I would not call them successful if they are not happy or the basis of their happiness is not stable.
In conclusion, I would like to say that money is thought to be a 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 equivalent of success in life. There are a lot of more valuable things that one should be eager to obtain.
