    Self defeating.

    Instead of improving oneself, one goes around hating successful friends.

    Where does the hate come from?

    That's why I'm so thankful for my friends at www.wpn.sg

    In a competitive industry like wedding photography, we cheer for each other's success and try to help each other during rough times and that to me is a really rare thing in any industry.

    What is wealth in them may not be attainable by you.
    What is happiness in you may not be reached by them.

    I have a good friend who spent over $5m SGD on cars over a spread of two years with his own hard earned cash. He is still searching for happiness and he dont seem to find it in the best nightclub or a Ferrari.

    Haha most important is to define success. What YOU want in life, what YOU think is success, what u want to achieve, not the social definition of success, or comparing the "level of success".

    To some, success is earning 1M before 30. To some it's being able to travel the world.To some its having your works exhibited, to hold their own concert, to start their own small business, or to pursue their dreams.

    For me success isn't money. It's being able to do the things I want to do, pursue my dreams and most importantly, live a happy life.

    And are you successful at keeping your successes away from successful friends?
