    Wealth As A Trap

    It's has been and will always be. Because wealth can lead you to heartbreaks, in various forms.  Wealth comes to a waste when you're found to be a prisoner of Drugs/liquor, Gambling and a bad wife.

    Wealth to Me

    Wealth to me, is a sunset, a sun rise. The love of a woman, the sound of children at play and unafraid. The measure of wealth a fine meal with loved ones, a surf to ride. The feel of wealth a warm breeze in your face and hair. The sound of wealth is fine music in your ear to...

    Plain Old Greed !!

              Wealth is nothing but greed. We came into this world with nothing. So why do we need wealth and material things ?

    Success

    I do not see wealth as success, wealth only comes after you are successful. A successful person to me; is a person whom has set off to do something and they're actively working towards their goal. This is true in business and in life in general. I heard this in a message recored...

    Wealth Does Not Inspire Success

    Success may be measured by what one has overcome to achieve that success, not what one has achieved. I am successful when I achieve what I have set out to achieve, even if only to apply my eyeliner in a straight line. I am even more successful, however...

    "Health Is Wealth"

    My Dad says this all the time. What's the point in being rich if you're in chronic pain all of the time?  Most people would give up a fortune to be cured of serious illnesses.

    Happiness

    My definition of success simply equates to overall happiness. Someone who impresses me as genuinely content and pleased with most aspects of their life is a person I'd think of as successful. The how and why of it may always be beyond my understanding if we've chosen drastically...

    I Measure Success By Other Factors

    Like They Say "money Isn't Everything

    I have always believe that money isn't everything, being happy with what you do is important, to accomplish your goals and dreams, that is what success is. Getting money for it is a bonus. Being successful in life is being happy with what you accomplish!
