The power that comes with wealth is enormous, most but not all can be swayed
Power brings wealth and influences where doors open and opportunities present
The 'Haves', the elites, the aristocrats command the 'pecking order' as money oil the system
No body is left out but everyone is trying to outshine each other with their moneyed tongue
The politically powerful bridge the commercial paths for the businesspeople
The route to cronyism, 'incest' and in-breeding begin

Is money the leveller? No
Money can buy many things but not health & life
Neither can money buy you your dreams and ideals; it can make the journey smoother though
Money does not buy happiness too but without money, happiness is mental
Money; same say is the root of all evil
Steve Jobs, Elvis Presley, Lam Kok, 46 (billionaire Chinese tea magnate), Joachim Herz 66 (coffee baron), Andrew Gety, mid-40s (heir to oil baron)...these few didn't live to enjoy their wealth

Man is a social animal
There is a need to achieve, to be recognised & to belong 
The community is their playground where they root, grow and prosper
The shouts of approval & acceptances generate achievement and self-actualisation
We yearn to 'have arrived', with or without money
The victory of homecoming is sweet 

Achievements and belongings outstrip wealth in our mental health
Recognition and self-esteem flood the mind with Endorphins
We live and shall leave behind our names 人死留名 虎死留皮
Without HEALTH, money cannot do a/any thing
Live well, stay healthy

Money is a necessity but can only fulfill your wants
Needs can be satisfied with minimum, to no, money
Without health, nobody can enjoy life
Be there, done that

What Is Success & Failure?

can one be successful continuously ...

Hope is the catalyst that sustain confidence before success appears
What is hope if success never appears? It's disappointment
The higher the hope, the higher the disappointment
It is said that there is a fine line between success & failure
I never accept this! It's either I succeed or fail; no two ways about it

Between good and lucky, I'd rather be lucky
Everything I do I succeed because I'm lucky
There are simply too many good and smart people around
Winner takes all
Losers have no story to tell

The real man knows when to stand up, when to lie low & when to make himself scarce
With grit & gumption, he attempts but without luck little, if not nothing, can be achieved
I have whatever it takes to succeed but, alas, luck seems to be elusive
Did I succeed ahead of my time & was trapped in a time warp
The struggle to meet the next success seems an illusively adulterated game

My strength and determination is strained
My positiveness is diluted by the onslaught of challenges
Perhaps, I am lost and need to seek a new dimension or shift the paradigm
If changing direction is the solution, I have tried many indeed
I am at wits end

I will hold on for as long as I possibly can
I will pray for deliverance and success
Success in achieving recognition ....for whatever
I have consciously move away from God & everything godly
HIS absence and non-answer are alarming; i have been screaming in the wilderness

Someday, somehow, I will succeed again 

I am deemed successful by many and in many ways
But that I have not harvested any triumphs for too long a time is detriment to my self-esteem
Whatever holds tomorrow
I like it to materialize today
I shall build my own SUCCESS
