Successful people

Every person want success in life. It is one major reason of happiness for many people. But I think that money can not define success. It is not necessary that you have to earn a lot of money to become successful. So I completely disagree with the statement that successful people earn a lot of money.

A person may earn a lot of money but he may not be happy with the work that he is doing. He may not like the job or he may inexpert with the job. So all time he have to worried about how to do the work. Even if he is expert at the work but he does not like the work then he will not get mental peace in doing the work. If the person himself is not satisfied with his job then how could he be successful. For example, my sister is a pharmacist. After completion of her graduation he joined in a medicine farm. Her work was to producing medicine just following the formula. And that formula was given by that company. Her work was just mixing one ingredient with other following the chart and just wait. But she was a very good and creative person. She always wanted to do something creative. She was not happy with that simple work. But the company gave her a good amount of salary. But as she was not happy with that work so she was not successful actually. And after few month she left the job and took a lower paid job. But this time she was happy with the work she is doing and she was successful in her term. So clearly money can not define her success.

The term success is different for different people. Everyone have different vision and mission in life. If someone can gain his goal then clearly he is successful. You can earn a lots of money but if you did not reach in your goal then clearly you will be a looser to yourself. For instance, I have a friend who liked to do mathematics. So she wanted to be an engineer but as their family tradition is being a doctor so she had to read in a medical college. Today she is a doctor and earns a lots of money. But she is not happy with her job. She actually hates visiting a lot of patients. So she is actually not successful in her term. She feel regret why did not she give priority of her desire at the beginning. The matter is though she is earning a lots of money but as she did not attain her goal so she is not successful.

So, money clearly can not define success in life. Success in life completely depends upon every individual. Success means attaining goal as well as being happy with the work that you are doing. So to be successful in life individual have to be focused in attaining the goal and have to do the work he wanted to do. Only then he will get the true success.
