  • What is a successful life ?

    The main stream view of a success life, include among other things, the following :

    - have good grades at school;
    ​- have a high paid and steady job;
    ​- have a wife or husband;
    ​- better have some children;
    - have a lots of money;
    ​- excel in one or more area of specialisation.


    ​What is your view of what our life should be like ?

    Being happy ? Lol.

    I think if someone is happy even with a not well paid job, a grade, a wife/husband, a kid, a lot of money.... He/She actually has a succesful life. Following the mainstream (I would have say capitalist or society) point of view isn't always the best idea.

        A successful life is a moment when we can beat the limitations of life we ​​have, successful living can not be in value from money, because money is only nominal. More successful lives make our lives easy and intelligent in any case ... that's the real success

          For me, it is also the feeling that I am a bit beneficial to other people. If you can make someone happy, then it is success. Life is not, or should not be, about material values and chase for career above all.
          I believe that after we die, we will be remembered for our deeds and merits rather than for anything else.

            You won't succeed in that.

            But agreed with the people above. Being happy.

                I would request respectable Dr. Atheist, Dr. Realist @Aussieinbg(Shaun) to shed some light on this topic. I would be very curious about his view point.

                        A successful life is for me a life rich of experiences,
                        So trying what is possible and seems to be desireable is what makes life successful in my opinion. Better make some bad experiences - as long as they don't kill you or make you unhappy forever - than no experiences at all.

                        I think a not successful life is led by people who don't dare anything and let pass each chance they have. Those who don't even know their limits.

                        At the end of our life, everything what counts is our memory and memories we have added to other humans memory.

                        A wise human told me once: "make some great memories" I won't forget doing this.

                          I'm going to quote the purpose of life as mentioned in the movie, "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty"

                          "To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life."

                            Depends what is success? For some, its high status and money. For others, education and perhaps being intelligent. I just think that success in life is to live a happy life.

                            But we all have different things which make us happy or enable us to live somewhat care free

                              To be content with your life, accomplish your goals and have no regrets. You have to live like you know you are going to die and knowing you have a limited time to do the things you want or else life can pass you by before you notice.
