These days, people who earning more money are often be regarded as successful. Admittedly, earning lot of money can be somehow considered as a sign of achieving goal. After all, richer persons are the minority in todays society who are in possess of remarkable abilities. But the argument that whether a person is successful or not by only to see how much money he or she earning is not of my view.
Every person have different goal. Likewise, people have their own interpretation of successful, it is common phenomenon that a great many professions and scientist who get high achievement, some even get the Nobel prize are still live a simple and plain life. Who can say that they are not successful persons. It is well known that businessman is usual earning more money than other career people. For many soldier, teacher and other society service, they contribute a lot for the society and get lots of respect. Of course, they should be regard as successful as what standard, although they receive not high salary and cant be deem the richer people.
Judging an individual only by the amount of money they earn will lead to a trend of material pursuit. It brings negative effect for the development of society.

We usually call such people is one who is the poorest only with money left.
So, I think it is a tragedy for a person who only seeks much more money on his or her daily life. Also it is risk to judge people by the money they earn among consciousness in society.
