If I feel successful in my life (achieved everything I wanted), should I care what the majority of the society thinks about it? Like hell should I.
Because I'm happy and in my eyes I succeeded in life. And re-your extremities, being drunk, for example is only a temporary happiness.
For some people success is having a loving family, raising a healthy child, for another it's having a prosperous carrier in business. I can see success being a subjective thing.
Just my opinion.
And what are you trying to say with those examples? An alcoholic, or a paedophile can be a successful businessman for all we know (
). I don't see the point bringing them up.
And those people who drink themselves stupid every night, are surely not happy in life.
