TOEFL Essay Topic 131 - Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Only people who earn a lot of money are successful. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
Though some people in Japan, where I live, may disagree, I definetly against the opinion that the only rich people are successful. There are some reasons for it.
First of all, money cannnot 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 childen including me. We all love him and his life is fillled with love now and forever. Not to mention, we cannnot buy love and family. Even if you are the richest person in the world, you cannnot get love and family by money.
Secondly, rich people has a lot of stress and many types of concern. If you are a rich enough to have a lot of juweries or substantial amount of money, you have to keep them from being stolen away, but it may stress you out.
Thirdly, it can be said that most of the rich people do not have enough time to enjoy their lives, which means, they are not always succesful in terms of mental satisfaction. Even rich people have a lot of money, it is nothing if they do not have time to spend money for their own lives. By contrast, ordinal people can enjoy their lives.
For these reasons, I strongly stand by my opinion.
