From a less money-minded point of view, one may say that success is measured according to the number and level of accomplishments or achievements. Some people may even say that attained good reputation (e.g. through altruistic or philanthropic involvements) is success. These are incorrect assumptions. Considering that a successful person is satisfied and true satisfaction is attended by contentment and peaceful co-existence with other people, a person's achievements, accomplishments, good reputation etc., only serve as means to attaining success.
Do you ever wonder why "successful" people continue to strive? Could it be that they are still seeking true success?
