I have a question:

In ranking order, which of these, in your own opinion is the most important?

1. Health
2. Money
3. Reputation
4. Relationship
5. Self Esteem

Kindly share your opinion on the subject.

Thanks.

Ok, I'll bite:

1. Health
2. Relationship
3. Money
4. Reputation
5. Self Esteem

But the list is arbitrary and not independent items so fairly pointless It's kind of like asking whether you would like to be rich or have a lot of money.

I think my list would be:

1) Health
2) Self-esteem
3) Relationship
4) Reputation
5) Money

Interesting enough that, while I believe money is an important tool, it's not the number one thing that I deem most important in this list.

It's true what they say about your health being the number one thing, though. When you're ill nothing else matters. That's why it's important to stay as healthy as possible, for as long as possible, barring any real illnesses like cancer or a degenerative disease.

Self-esteem I would rank higher than relationships because you can't really be a good person to other people unless you have a good relationship with yourself. Loving oneself just leads to naturally being good to other people. Treat others as you would like to be treated and all that, right?

Finally, reputation is kind of an iffy one for me. I think it closely relates to self-esteem and relationships because it directly results from how you treat the other two categories, hence why it's more important than money.

What does your list look like?

My list would go something like:

1) Self-esteem (If you don't like yourself, you're probably going to sabotage everything else on this list)
2)Health
3)Relationship (I'd include friendships and family on this too - without people to share with life would be very lonely!)
4)Money
5)Reputation (This is the one thing on here that can be affected by others, as reputation is essentially what other people think of you, so it comes last on my list. There's always going to be the odd person that bad mouths you and I don't think it's worth worrying about.)

The priorities almost certainly change over time. When I was younger health mattered less, reputation more, and money more. Most people start caring more about health as they get older and say they care less about money as they have more of it.

Thanks for the replies. My list goes like this:

1. Health
2. Self Esteem
3. Relationship
4. Money
5. Reputation

I agree with DoingHomework that priorities do change over time and the reasons for that are obvious. Nevertheless, Health seems to be one of the top priorities among the replies.

Interesting observation though because in my line of work, people I meet seem to be more concerned about money over health.

In any case, I am happy to see health as priority here. It does pay to take care of our health early.

1. Money
2. Happiness
3. Health

I would rather be a double lower extremity amputee, with a kidney removed, controlled cancer, diabetic, my spleen removed, large part of my large intestines removed due to an infection and drive a Buggati Veyron with $587,495,488.51 in the bank.
