How do you measure whether you are successful in this life?


How do you measure success i.e., money, material possessions, great job or is there something else by which you deem you are successful in this life? Thanks for answering.

    Hi Dearest Sparklea,

    Yes, that truly is success no doubt, if one is able to do such and truly love others and turning all over to God, then truly trusting Him and placing our full faith in Him, then it is surely success!!! God bless you.

    Hi DrRebeccaSanders, Thanks for the honest answer here! Although you are facing such financial issues, you are contributing to helping others, which is profound and in my book, very successful indeed, which does not sound like failure to me!

    Hi epbooks, very interesting answer and so true no doubt, as one must surely set one's own goals. We should never compare ourselves to each other. Awesome!

    Hi Jay Max Juster, oh, no, I am not asking in search of my own happiness, as I am good to go, but asking ask to what others define as being successful in this life. I agree, having a million dollars is not success to me!

    Thanks for answering.
