Who says money makes you successful?

This isn't a completely formed thought, but I have to get on a plane this evening...

In response to the tax article referenced below, many of the online commenters said I was attacking people for being successful. By successful they meant wealthy.

Who says they're successful? Or that having money, a nice house and property is what makes them successful.

I've got a buddy who's a missionary. He's getting married on Saturday. He might never make money.

Anyone think he's not successful?

Forget taxes for a minute. Why do we put rich people on a pedestal?

Maybe NFL players and celebrities should get paid in the opportunity to do good deeds.

Travis, I don't consider myself wealthy or successful, just incredibly lucky! I didn't feel attacked by the article. Thought it was pretty fair presentation. And I will continue to pay my property taxes if HR 900 goes nowhere....
