Why Experiences Are Better Than Money

Why Experiences Are Better Than Money Some people focus on accumulating large amounts of money and spending them on things as opposed to experiences. They believe that material things will bring them happiness. However, this is not entirely true because material things can only provide happiness for a short time.

What is success?

  What is success?  What is success? Only you can define it in your own life. In my own life, I have attempted to define both Success and Significance. To me, Success is secular.
