Would You Give Anything To Be Successful? by: Amy Twain

Others will say yes immediately without
 second thoughts and without batting an eyelash. It's easy to say that you would do anything to be successful. But really, huh?

They say that your job won't take care of you when you get sick, so better take care of your relationships and the people close to you.

Yes, you'd have awards, plaques, higher paycheck, promotion, admiration (envy even) everywhere, and some pats on the back, but after that, what? How about your health, spirituality and relationships? Will success compensate if all these will be gone or suffer?

You can't have it once, so know your priorities.

I know someone a very successful person who got promoted. But at the course of her successful career, her health suffered terribly from her ulcer-creating job. Before she turned 40, she died of cancer. In her quest to be a success, she neglected her health.

Or how about really getting famous or successful but sacrificing time for your family, friends and loved ones? For sure, you don't want to miss anything on life, right? But you can't win it all, you know.

But I'm not saying these that we should not strive to be successful at our work and be lazybones. All I'm saying is that we should at least balance every aspect of our lives--career, relationships, health, spiritual life. If something's got to give, then so be it--it's what important to you that counts.

So, if given a chance to be asked again by that million dollar question, I'd say no, way.

But of course, everything is a matter of opinions and at the end of the day, we still make our own decisions. It's just a matter of setting our own priorities and how well we can juggle every aspects of our lives and how to balance them all--and still be happy.

How about you--would you give anything to be successful?
