There is no general answer as everybody has their own ideas. For you, money and fame may be important, for someone else a happy family life. You have to decide first what you want to talk about, then you can ask for advice.

I admit everybody has their own choices, but when they are noticed at a deeper level, they coincides with what our ancestors used to say.
