There's an old saying, life begins at 40, and 23 percent of Americans think that is a good age to determine whether a man has been successful. Next up were the age of 30 (18 percent), 50 (14 percent) and retirement (15 percent). Twenty-three percent chose that it's only right to make that judgment at the end of a man's life. The term successful used to be measured by the money or social status one had gained. That measure is losing currency in favor of the success brought about by the friendship, love and joy that one gives and receives along the way. The sum total of those riches keep accumulating until you're on your deathbed and beyond.
