"Successful expats in a country as unusual, exciting, diverse and lesser-explored such as Belize tend to be very adaptable and also tolerant. They react to change well,......"

Who ever wrote that has obviously never posted on this board.

I think they were talking about 'successful' expats. In other words - those who have moved here and succeeded and been happy. In our short few years here we reckon only about 1/10 that we've seen come here and to the mainland succeed to live here happily for the long term.

I think it really depends on your definition of "success".

I tried to qualify my definition by using the term 'happily'. Probably not clearly enough. I wasn't considering financial or business success as the measure.

I didnt think you were Collyk, but wondered what the original article assumed. I think I would be pretty safe in saying that most of the ex pats in San Pedro do not define success the same way that most Americans do. I don't know about any other country's definition, but would imagine it's about the same.

It is exactly that different definition of success that I think attracts people here shuffles. Those who measure their success in more material or social status terms just can't hack it that most of us don't give a toodle who you are or how much money you have.

My favorite question about success was posed by the late George Carlin:
"If you set out to fail and succeed, which did you do?"
