Warren Buffett’s definition of life success is THIS.

Many people find inspiration in American businessman, well-known investor, and philanthropist Warren Buffett. One of Buffett’s most important definitions of success in life is revealed by author Alice Schroeder in her 2008 biography, “The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life.”

Schroeder describes an incident that happened while Buffett was delivering a speech at the University of Georgia in the book. Buffett responded to a student’s question regarding his definition of success in life by saying that, as one approaches the conclusion of their life, being sincerely loved by the number of “people you want to have love you” is the biggest success.

“I know people who have a lot of money, and they get testimonial dinners and they get hospital wings named after them. But the truth is that nobody in the world loves them… If you get to my age in life and nobody thinks well of you, I don’t care how big your bank account is, your life is a disaster,” Buffett said, as per the biography.
He further said, “The problem with love is that it’s not for sale… The only way to get love is to be lovable. It’s very irritating if you have a lot of money. You’d like to think you could write a check: I’ll buy a million dollars’ worth of love. But it doesn’t work that way. The more you give love away, the more you get.”
