Every individual in the society might live and work to succeed. Success is state which is achieved when a person accomplishes what he wishes and feels satisfied. This wish is different in each person – honor, money, or dream. A lot of people would feel unhappy and uncomfortable because they think they do not have enough money. So, these people consider money as a success. However, success is not achieved when people earn a lot of money in various reasons – endless greed of people, and lack of mental richness.
Although people earn a lot of money, people wants to get more and more because all people have infinite avarice to have something valuable. That is, even if having lots of money, people would not be satisfied at the money they have. For example, there is a story of a greedy beggar. A man saw a beggar who had a silver coin in his hand. He asked a beggar how can you get the silver coin, and he said that he gathered lots of wood coins and changed them to a bronze coin. After then, he gathered more bronze coins and changed them to a silver coin, and it took about six months. The man asked a beggar how to use the coin. He said he would not use it, and the man questioned why. The beggar said he just wanted to have silver coin when he got a bronze coin, and wanted to have a bronze coin when he got a wood coin. This story shows that even a beggar wants to get more money even if it takes a lot of time. Thus, because of the endless greed of people, people would not be satisfied even if he earns a lot of money.
If people have money or some valuable thing a lot, they would feel nervous because they worry to use or lose these things. So, they would not feel happy and succeeded even if they have lots of money. For instance, in the story of the Scrooge, he had an amount of money, but he always felt nervous because he worried that some people would rob his money. However, after then, he started to donate and share his richness, and eventually he felt satisfied and happy. This story tells us that substantial richness rather make people worried and mental richness, such as donation, give people real happiness and success. In this case, thus, people would succeed when they have mental richness, not a substantial one, such as money.
In conclusion, people would not be successful when they earn a lot of money, because people have endless avarice, and they lack mental richness. Therefore, money is not a only tool of success
