IELTS Writing Task 2(Sample Answer)

Success is often measured in terms of how much money somebody has earned. Do you think wealth is a good measure of success? How else could we measure whether somebody is successful or not?

Nowadays, success is measured by how much money people have earned. I do not believe that earning more money is a good example of success. Despite money is on top of measure success, there are many other ways to measure success, including social works and donations to name but a few.
I do not accede to the idea that money is good to measure success because money can have anyone without doing any work. My belief is due to my observation that some have money because of their parents; their parents have lots of money and they are successful in their business and they pass on their money to the next generation. I can cite an example of this. Mr. Dhirubhai Amabani is a successful businessman; he has been started lots of businesses and earned lots of money; he passed all that money for his son who is not working anywhere but still, he has much more money though he is not successful.
Money is not the only way to measure success; there are a variety of ways to measure it. Instead of measuring success by money, we could measure by their social activities like giving donations to the education sector or fund for the development of the country. One of the best examples of this is Mr. Salman Khan has giving funds for those children who are suffering from heart diseases.
To conclude, everyone is measuring success with money but I disagree with this idea. Despite measuring success by money, there are various ways to measure success.
