The definition of relative is "not absolute or complete", "properly related in size or degree or other measurable characteristics". In the realm of human experiences, considering the variances and uniqueness of every individual, there is no number value to equate relativity to the definition of success in human endeavors.

The world gauges success on ever-changing standards fostered by the competitive nature of human beings. Yesterday's lauded discovery (say the latest miracle drug) is often not without side effects, sometimes unnecessary deaths. The term 'relative' and 'success' share the commonality that neither are absolute.
