There is merit in achieving success in that regard. Money without question can enrich your quality of life and give both you and more importantly your family some security in an uncertain world.
That said, money beyond my immediate needs has never come high on my lists of priorities because rightly or wrongly I am of a different mindset.
Let me ask you this?
What is more important to you? To be a successful businessperson and very rich.
Or, to be loved.
Furthermore health of your family and yourself is the most important of all. Compared with these things money pails into insignificance.
Of course you may have money and these things, but we are beginning to see money fall down the list of priorities are we not?
With an excess of money at your disposal lies a great responsibility to help others does it not? If you do not help others, in what way can you be described as successful?
IN A NUTSHELL A SUCCESSFUL PERSON IS,
“Someone who stays true to his or her beliefs”
