To me, being successful is being happy. I think that we live in world that correlates being successful as someone who has a lot of money and a lot of things that show people that you are "successful" and you are "happy" because of the things you are able to buy. I don't think that money can buy happiness. Maybe temporarily, but there will always be something missing. I think that we all need to find contentment in our lives. I always say that there will always be someone who is better off than you, and there will always be someone worse off than you. But if you learn to be truly content with the everyday blessings that you have, you will learn what it means to be happy and successful.
