Nowadays, money seems even more important in our life. Someone says that only people who earn money are successful. I do not agree with this opinion. Because a lot of people do not earn money in a right way. I think a person who is needed by the society is successful and a person who has a warm family and happy life is a successful person.
There are lots of rich people in the society now. Some of them earn money in a good and right way, but some of them earn money by committing crimes. They earn a lot of black money. Others may think that they are very rich and successful, but in fact they are bad people. If the policemen notice the things they have done they will get into the prison soon. The more black money they have earned, the more years they have to stay in the prison that is not successful.
I think if a person is needed by the society, that person is successful. He lets others need him. He makes the society need him that is successful. If a person cannot earn a lot of money, but he can do things for the society, he is also a successful person.
The basic of a person is the family. Family is the most important thing in a persons live. So to have a warm family is very important. I think a person who is able to have a good and warm family is a successful person. Happiness is very important in our life too. If a person has a lot of money but he is not happy that is nothing. So, I think a person who can have a happy life is successful.
A successful person is not a person who only earns money, because some people earn money by committing crimes, and I think a successful man is a person needed by the society and has a warm family and a happy life.
