Does being successful equate to being happy? Can one be a failure yet be happy?
I think that if you're happy, you're succeeding in happiness regardless of what else is going on.
Walk quietly upon the earth, and leave not a single trace of your passing. If you can do this, then you are a success.
Success does not equate happiness as it depends on the individual. You can be successful and if you are not at peace with yourself or do not really love yourself you can definitely be miserable. When you are contented and not puffed up or haughty with your success you can achieve happiness.
Failures is not necessarily bad. It just means that you have to try harder until you succeed. You can fail and still be happy once you do not consider yourself a loser.
Failure is a motivating force to make you continue trying until you succeed. Happiness lies in knowing who you are as a person and your relationship with your fellow man.
This depends upon the definition of successful. Someone can definitely fail at a task and still be happy. Success, as most people would define it with money house(s), car(s), leisure time, etc., does not lead to happiness. There have been many wealthy people who have been quite miserable. Some have either committed suicide or died of drink or drugs trying to drown their sorrow, in spite of their riches.
What is failure? What is success? What is happiness? depending on the definition of these for you your answer will be different. As long as we breathe, think, analyze, we have room for improvement.
Anyone who is happy does not see themself as being a failure.
It's been said "failure is a result and not a person".
You can be happy without being successful. Not unless it is determined that being happy is the definition of what success is, then the answer is no. I hope that you can understand that. What I mean is that if you define being happy as what makes you successful, then you can't separate the two.
No. If one is happy, then one is successful. This is regardless of physical possessions, personal status or anything else of earthly concern.
I agree with LawrenceS if he means: If you are a failure, but happy then obviously yes.

Do you believe that success begets success and that being successful makes it FAR easier toascend to EVEN HIGHER heights and levels of success? Do you further contend that you have learned MORE from success than FAILURE?

I went to college, but failed. I went to ITT Tech, but failed. I'm asking a simple question: Is college a requirement for success in the modern world?
