Well where do you start? Rich needs definiton, as does successful. If its money and success then study study study. If you can be the very best at any subject then money and success will find you. If its a self awarded richness and success then I suppose its about finding something that makes you feel warm and content inside, no matter what you earn. Its nice to live on both sides of your question, hopefully you will also find the answer in good time. As my father always said.....all that matters is that you BE happy. Good luck!
