    Yes, it is the only way to be successful is to be honest with yourself and the people around you. Otherwise Karma will get you.

    Yes, it is possible to be honest and successful at the same time. After all, more good will come your way once there is honesty in your life.

    Is there any other way to be trully successful in life?

    The way I see it, noone can honestly enjoy success if the success itself was obtained dishonestly. Someone who says he/she is successful, but fraudulently got to it, is lying to him- herself and is in complete denial about it.

    If he isn't honest, it is enough that he doesn't feel the inner peace, which kill all the meaning of success inside him.
    Do you think who isn't honest can be successful?

    yes. I've being honest most of my life (there is may be a time that I don't really honest, I don't know when or where or why...). I am currently consider a successful man. I have praised the Lord our God, has given me the gift of honesty.

    For some, it's just not possible. My truthful personality is so different compared to what's considered acceptable in society, that I've had to bend so far until the point I find it difficult to recognize who I am. And to make matters worse, I've probably not bended enough, I'm still considered far too radical.

    Conformity sells, if not enough people can relate to you, you won't make any money, because you have no market.

    I should think that probably depends on what you consider success to be.  If you consider success to be becoming the Prime Minister and nothing less will do then honesty is probably not your priority!!  But if you consider success to be satisfying yourself, doing good work and being happy etc then its quite possible to be successful and honest both at once.

    very much possible, it depends on the kind of mindset you have.

    I think that it is NOT possible to be succesfull WITHOUT be Honest!

    If you will be zillionaire on the world where everyone hates you, will you feel successful? ;-)

    Gaining successes are more connected with hard work than being honest or unhonest.
