If your definition of success is tied to dollar signs, you will never be happy, and thus never successful. What exactly are you looking to purchase that justifies you as a success? Success is measured by your own happiness and how well you cultivate relationships with people. Therefore, I think everyone would agree LoverOfWomen has demonstrated a personality that prescribes failure. If I had to bet my last dollar, I would say ray7 is destined to be happy and balanced, and LoverOfWomen is on the path to envy and emptiness, relying on outward impressions of wealth to compensate where his personality has created a deficit. This never has worked and it never will.
Loverofwomen, get out of this bubble you live in and face reality. I don't know where you grew up or if you had any friends as a child, but most people I know would hardly consider a 24 year old attorney, making 65,000-70,000, poor and unprestigous. You have the nerve to call someone who is attending a tier 3/4 school a failure? The problem here is you are a social misfit who has probably never really even seen someone who has truly "failed" (dropped out of high school, substance abuse). Unambitious losers? I am 21 years old and will be attending law school next year, something I, as well as most people I know, consider to be extremely ambitious. The truth is loverofwomen, you represent a small, small, portion of the population that holds such feelings. Truth be told, people like you need to re-evaluate what is good in life, and consider how lucky we ALL are to be, where we are now.
