What are you short of?

The above is an expression spoken about a person by another who likes the former.
For example, a mother praises her son, saying that he is not shortage of anything; he has every thing like figure, education, inheritanc and what not.

Is such expression there in native English?

    Are you looking for an idiomatic way of expressing this question?

    I can think of: What don't you have (in life)? / What are you missing (in life)? / What more could you want (in life)?

    I think adding 'in life' improves the clarity of the sentence, however I don't pretend to have fully understood the context.
