What is successful? Money? Social status? Love?
True success beyond the tangible and superficial realms of this world lies within. It is that satisfaction that one's own path is truly fulfilling the measure of their being. You can be happy living off of $8 an hour as long as you live within your means. You can be happy by extending charity, love and understanding to those within your social circles rather than striving toward higher classes. You can be happy even in times of lost love if you exercise that seed of faith that one is out there for you and that you will eventually find that person.
In short, if your life is filling the measure of your spirit and being then yes, you are happy!
Of course, failure is just a temporary defeat it doesn’t mean sadness or it’s the end of the world, it only means to strive further and to exert more effort.
happiness is the result of many things and once a person finds out what that is for them than it can not be measured by people, places or things.
happiness isnt defined by success rather than ones ablity to enjoy life based on there beliefs practices and attuide

I like this quote " If you keep on failing at everything you do, don't view yourself as a failure. For you succeed at failing. So to succeed, one must fail at failure!"
of course you can. being happy is the greatest success a person can have. what i'd like to no is if being super rich gives a person happiness?
Yes, look at India. Many of the holymen there live in total poverty and yet they are in ecstatsy. Happiness is an inner condition that does not depend on externals.
