    “This planet has –

    or rather had – a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movement of small green pieces of paper, which was odd because...

    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.

    I do see wealth as a success,

    but your not only successful if you have money. I am going to be a psychologist and they make decent money.. I will have worked hard towards this and with many years of schooling, my wealth is much deserved. It isn't my success though, helping others will be my success. If that...

    "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.

    WEALTH DOES NOT EQUAL SUCCESS IN LIFE There is

    a common misconception out there that wealth = success. In today’s capitalistic society, we often measure our success and self-worth by our assets and income. Those that have the fancy BMW are somehow perceived as more successful than those with a Honda Accord. It is an easy...

    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...

    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...

    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!

    Happiness

    I know the secret to what success truly means;

    to be successful in this world is to seek, find and love God then trust him and let him guide you to your path so you can do his will and return home to him when he brings you back. That is success.

    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...
