Do you agree or disagree with the following statement:
Only people who earn a lot of money are successful.
Nowadays, it is generally agreed that only people who earned a lot of money are successful. We spend the majority of our working hours at work - earning for living, providing for our families and saving our retirement. Although money no doubt plays big role in determining the quality and nature of our style of living, but to be frank I can not agree with this statement. In my point of view money and succes are two different things where having money will not lead to be a successful human and being a successful will not lead to gain a lot of money. First of all, there are people whom we consider to be rich and whom are having a luxurious things at their homes. When we are considering them, it seems that they earn money via gembling, prostitution, drug dealing or via unpleasant way. Even though they seems to be happy, but they are pretending themselves, they are not happy nor successful. Secondly, there are successful people such as teachers, who shapes the behavior or the lives of future generation and provide them education. Most of teachers do not have luxurious lives as they do not have lot of money. In contrast with that, they have self respect and satisfaction from people, society. In my opinion, they are most successful people, because they are truly happy on what they have. Thirdly, We have seen most rich persons are not healthy, because they are busy, stressful and restless. Even though, they could afford themselves richest hospitals, see professional doctors and have healthy food, but they do not gain any well-being on their everyday activities. To sum up, In my opinion money and success are two different things, where success can get into earning much money, but money will never create a successful and healthy person.
