    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...

    Success: The Life And Death

       Life is a beautiful place to be. Society, is a different story. I've seen the darkest of hearts and the brightest of souls. I've shared drinks with celebrities and I was taught with royalty among my peers. There is nothing that separates me from them. There is nothing that...

    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

    "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 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 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...

    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!
