My Definition of Success

I've been reading Frugal's definition of success and have decided to talk about my concept of the Four Evils. For me, success isn't merely about making lots of money. What is the point of have a billion dollars if you do not have good health?

My goal in life is to minimize what I call the Four Evils. The Four Evil are the following:

1. Death,

2. Pain,

3. Uncertainty, and

4. Restriction.

I'd rather live than die. I want to avoid pain. I don't like uncertainty. For example, if I had to choose between $100 for certain or $100 with if I win a coin flip, I'd opt for the former. Restriction refers to freedom, not being stuck, e.g. in a career, in a dead-end job, with a bad spouse, and so forth.
