Part 3

1. Is money the only measure of success in your country?

Well yes. Generally, I think that this case happens not only in Vietnam but also in other countries. Money is a great tool to achieve lots of things in life. For example, it can help children to pay for quality education. Most private schools are claimed to provide great environment but require exorbitant tuition fees, right? Or we can get the best service if we have enough money to pay for the suit room in hotels, business-class seats for flights. Of course, there are also other factors such as fame or social status included in terms of being successful.

However, without money, anything else would become meaningless. Nobody wants to have 10 million subscribers on their Youtube channel without earning income from that, right!

  • exorbitant tuition fees: học phí đắt đỏ
  • meaningless: vô nghĩa

2. How do you define whether one is a successful person?

As I said earlier, money is usually considered as an effective measure for success by many people. I am not an exception. However, in addition to money, I believe that other important aspects of success. For example, a person cannot be called successful if they have nothing but money.

A successful doctor is someone who not only earns a great deal from their job but also achieves certain levels in their career ladders. He or she also has to be an expert in the field and is respected or recognized by institutions, patients and co-workers. Moreover, if a person seems to be successful but deep down, they always have fears or insecurities or emotional struggles and mental health problems, I don’t think that person can exemplify success.

  • career ladders: thang sự nghiệp
  • emotional struggles: đấu tranh cảm xúc
  • exemplify: làm gương

3. Is there a contradiction between success and happiness?

I don’t think so. I know that in the past, people used to believe that you have to pay a price for being successful, such as you cannot have love or happiness. This is quite reasonable since if a person is extremely successful in their career, it means that they have to prioritize their job over other aspects in life such as relationships.

However, I think this case only happens temporarily. In the long term, if we want to actually become successful, I think we need to figure out the formula of work-life balance. Actually, they do not contradict each other. Instead, they support each other. For example, without relationships, we cannot find someone to share our stress and pressure, and therefore we keep working with negative things stuck in our head. I do not think that is healthy as well as effective. Yeah, so to sum up, it’s hard to be both successful and happy at the same time. However, it’s a must if we actually want to gain something in life, and I mean in the long run.

  • contradict: mâu thuẫn
