What is true success in this life

The financial wisdom I believe in is different from what the world deems as financial success or wisdom. Investing money for the teaching of morality and the gospel would not be considered a good financial investment, but yet there is non-greater. Investing in one’s personal health through natural means is considered by many as a loss of the benefits of success (success often means eating plenty health destroy foods in high volume), yet like all long-term investments, what can be compared to good health as one gets older. Here I cite two examples from the Bible of men who had opportunity to amass wealth but decided that there was something better that life had to offer.
Hebrews 11:8 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.
11:9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as [in] a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:
11:10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker [is] God.

11:24 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;
11:25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;
11:26 Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompense of the reward.
Moses and Abraham understood what constitutes true greatness and success, which when properly understood is a radical departure from conventional thinking.
