Will you go for material success or a good reputation?

Few of my friends told me about this; no matter how successful you are in life, if you don't know how to deal with it, it won't last. Well, it is indeed that people who are in the same field needs to be more careful in taking care of their possessions because there's still chance to lost it all specially. your reputation.

hello my friend.it is nice to be rich with material success if you reaped it from the fruits of your labor.if you cheated to get rich, life then is meaningless for you. such a case is being a corrupt government official.they may be rich materially but in fact, their reputations are very low.

Good reputation is the result of a character, a material success i commonly comes out when we have good reputation...but to keep one of them i think i need to go back to my character which will sustain my good reputation. And a personality that i can share to many lives...

I'd rather have good reputation than material success... for me.. I can still have the material success with a good reputation.. it's the character that matters how you will live... But the best thing for me is that even i don't have material things as long as i can still help others if i'm capable to.. it's a good reputation that material things and even money can't buy...

I would go for none of them, I think I have to be sure about me myself, who I am,and what I want to do in the, having a life with purpose will make that none of the seconds of my life get lost,because I will use all my time to follow my goals, which can be charity,helping the others,preach God message,or whatever that is my purpose,and what the others think is what they see on me, and the way they want to interpretate it. “Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.” John Wooden quotes (American , b.1910)
