Why do we believe we must measure success? In life, what metrics do we think are relevant, important, and measurable? What do we mean by success? How does my success compare with your success.
Success does not have anything to do with material goods but is rather tied to broader concepts. One measure of success is how happy a person is. For some people, they might feel their happiest when they have luxurious items. However, this is not universally true and is consequently not a true measure of success.
