Being wealthy does not necessarily make you successful.
There are many wealthy people who are woeful failures.
It is better to be poor but successful than to be rich but unsuccessful.
The best thing, however, is to be both wealthy and successful.
Your dream should be to be rich and successful.
It is tragic to be wealthy but unsuccessful.
That could mean you have worked so hard for nothing.
This may happen when you use dirty methods to acquire your wealth, or when you use honestly acquired wealth for evil instead of for good.
Using unscrupulous methods to acquire riches makes you a woeful failure weather you are exposed or not.
You are merely an elephant standing on sandy feet or a storey building on a mud foundation.
