WE are living for our love ones. So definitely, we should not only focused our self on the things that can make our future more comfortable. But then, we should also think of the people that love us. We should not take forgranted of our health.Beacause HEALTH IS WEALTH. What will be the purpose of our succesful career if our health is at risk...

I don't think we need to choose one, because we can have both. A successful career and healthy body. If you have a successful career, you also the enough money to sustain the vitamins and medicine needed for a healthy body. Having a successful career doesn't mean having an unhealthy body. A healthy body can be easily achieved if you have all the means to afford the necessary resources.

but if you wanna get a successful career,you have to work hard.you may have a unregular diet and keep working until morning.most of the damage they bring to the body cant compensate by just some pills.also great stress from your work will do harm to your health.

Sorry to hear about your teacher passing away like he did. I'm sure he was a great teacher that was inspired by many and I'm sure he will be missed by many. If you have gone to school for learning something that you really found interesting then continue on with it don't let anything stop you. Also success and career are both very important and go hand in hand for you can't do well with your career if your not healthy. so be in tip top shape for both of them and full fill your dream in what it is your taking up in school I do wish you the best of luck.

People should live for a reason. they have to realize that first and live to that for the rest of their lives. Each of us has a purpose and the purpose to live of life is really a vital part of our humanity. Everyday people are in search for their real purpose in their lives, once realized they know what to do. People should live in a way that they'll be happy for the rest of their lives and let other people be happy to live their lives as well.
