It depends what kind of goldfish. The small cheap goldfish are weak and die off easily no matter what, and they're used a lot as feeder fish for bigger fish. Other types can be stronger but they all need care. Goldfish need a serious aquarium with a filter, moving water for oxygen, and partial water changes at least every two weeks, maybe less with a lot of plants. Of course they need food but overfeeding can also hurt them. The idea that they can live in bowls for their natural life is a myth. They usually die off soon in a bowl.1
Filter, air, feed them, clean dirt once a week.1

Well goldfish in bowls really don't last long. You need a tank and a water filter to keep them alive and well. I've had several goldfish like that for 3 years and they're still living.2
Well first you feed them, and then get a tank if your serious about it because they need to live in a better living environment in order to live longer.1
