it is only possible to measure that by the standards of whoever is measuring it.a doctor father might not think much of a son who decided to be a rock musician and would not think much of his getting to play his first gig in a club but for the son it would represent success in life.
i measure success in life on the basis of what a person set out to do and on how much of it was achieved.
i came into business leaving a flourishing corporate career 26 years back and enforced on my self a strict no working after office hours rule.All these years not once has a client been invited home or out to diner nor has any client call been made after 7-00 pm since that was designated family time, even the mobile fone is switched off after that time.
I have managed well for my self though compared to my colleagues who slogged till all hours of the night i have been a colossal failure since i make much less than they do.I have however done theater, read hundreds of books,written poetry and been with my children when they did their summer projects.
Who decided whether i have been successful? Surely only I do , and despite occasional periods of depression on the issue i at the core of my being think i have been very very successful.QED. end of ego massage/

For me it's only through self satisfaction. Regardless of what it is I do or achieve, if my own personal satisfaction is missing then I don't see success - I see something is missing. I think this is primarily why people who are wealthy are not happy, they don't see or feel the self satisfaction in it. There is 'something' missing that money can't buy.
To measure success in life I never judge it through monetary success. I adjudge myself and people through the level of our ability to touch the heart of others. If I have made somebody happy through my gesture as well as if I had put in some effort to brighten the life of the next generation through my knowledge then I am definitely successful so do the other people. Money is a must for a comfortable life but where is the guarantee that the money will never be lost and if its lost then how to succeed in life. Thus, education, good behavior and ability to work hard makes life successful.
I measured my success in life by the love of and from my family and the fact I worked hard, so upon retirement I could still live comfortably.
For me success is being able to do what I like to .. no matter if it takes lots of time or yields less monetary benefits
For me, it is only if you are able to prevent all forces of life from pressurizing you to do something you do not like. Interesting question.
