It is true that money is an important factor to enrich our lives, so some people in Japan, where I live, may agree with the statement that the only rich people are successful. However, I definitely disagree with this opinion for the following reasons.
First of all, money cannot buy everything. For example, unfortunately, my father is not a rich person, but, in my opinion, he is one of the most successful men in my country. He has a loving wife, who is my mother, and two children including me. We all love him and his life is filled with love now and forever. Not to mention, we cannot buy love and family. Even if you are the richest person in the world, it is impossible for you to buy family relationship. This cleary illustelates that money is not an indicator of the successfulness.
Secondly, rich people has a lot of stress and many types of concern. If you are a rich enough to have a lot of jewelries or substantial amount of money, you have to keep them from being stolen away, but it may stress you out. Nowadays, reliable security system for personal use is available. However, since it does not provide us complete secureness, ultimately, you must protect your properties by yourself. Money may make you a doughtful person and that would make your life not successful.
Thirdly, it can be said that most of the rich people do not have enough time to spend moneies on their own lives, which means, they are not always successful espesially when it comes to mental satisfaction. Rich people such as CEO of a listed company are always busy and do not have enough time to devote themselves on their hobbies. By contrast, ordinal people can enjoy their lives.
For these reasons, I strongly stand by my opinion.
