What is success for people in contemporary world? For some it is emotional stability, circle of loyal friends and warm relationships with family members, for others it is material weath, well-paid job and luxury.
I consider that success has no any connestion with wealthiness. Firtly, nobody can buy happiness, support and love of close people, without which, in my view, a person cannot be called successful. What would you do with money, if you are lonely, depressed and confused with busy lifestyle? Secondly, all people have their own goals which sometimes are much more precious than money. As for me, spotsmen, scientists, just students of prestigious universities, those who overcame serious deseases or others who achieve their big dreams are successful even if they do not earn a lot.
However, some people are convicted that only those who have well-paid job are successful because they worked hard to get money. Also some say that success is life without any restrictions which only rich people can afford.
Despite these facts, I dare say that there are lots of people who earn money unfairly, lying, stealing and using other people. In my opinion, success cannot be built on someone else’s misforture, so these ones are not successul, money just corrupted them. In addition, I am clined to believe that true success is in people’ satisfaction of life, their relationships, their favourite activities, it is not in a luxury life, rich cars and so on.
Summing it up, each of us have his own thoughts about meaning and purpose of life, each of us wants to reach his own personal aims, but I think that only happiness and fair living can lead a person to the real success.
