What is the best way to judge whether a person is successful or not? There are many answers. Some people think that only people who earn a lot of money are successful. Other people, however, argue that people who earn a great deal of money may not be successful. As far as I am concerned, I do not think money is the only way to measure success.
In the first place, how to earn money should be the judgement of success instead of the amount of money. People can get money by a variety of ways, such as being lucky in the lottery, receiving a fortune from relatives, smuggling. Of course, you cannot say these kinds of people are successful. On the contrary, we could only say they are lucky, have good relatives or are crimnals. In short, People who earn money with their hands and intelligence by legal methods can be called "successful persons".
In the second place, many people who do not earn lots of money are also thought to be successful in their fields. For example, DU PU, a very famous Chinese poetry in Tang Dynasty, was very poor in his lifetime. But he wrote a lots of well-known poems, some of which are taught in all elementary schools in China even today. Can you say that he failed because of his poverty?
In conclusion, I believe that money is not the only way to judge the success of a person not only because that the way of earning money is more important than the amount of money, but also because that people who do perfect jobs in their field can also be measured as successful persons even if they do not earn a great deal of money.
