    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!

    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...

    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 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 Does Not Inspire Success

    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...

    "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.

    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.

    I Measure Success By Other Factors
