Succesful in the traditional sense: Big house, beautiful wife, awesome car, job in a managing position, expensive clothing.
Succesful in a more realistic sense: No worries about housing, happy marriage, car, job you like, clothing that's trendy enough to make you happy.

I know a man I consider a great success.

He has a master's degree in History.  He was a university professor.

One summer vacation he made a backpacking trip, a hike, from Georgia to Maine on the Appalachian Trail.  That is over 2000 miles.  He had a great time.  The next summer he did it again.  Then he did it again.  He quit teaching and became a carpenter during the winter, saving just enough money to spend all summer hiking.  He has hiked the same trail about 10 times.  Maybe more.

Now he has no home, he rents a room during the off-season when he's not hiking.  He works at stores that sell outdoor equipment during the off-season.  During the summer he is, basically, homeless.  He has written many articles about hiking.  He has made many friends during his hikes.  

He doesn't have much money, doesn't own a house or a car.  But he is doing exactly what he wants to do.

I think that's the true definition of success.
