So if you met a guy who has no college degree or educational experience what-so-ever, but makes $100,000 a year greeting at a Wal-mart store, would you call him "successful?"
I put this in dating because many women say they want to date a "successful" man.

Success is more than just what goes in your bank account, it's about living up to your potential. For most men, being a greeter at Walmart is not the pinnacle of their potential and therefore does not make them successful in my opinion. Is there a reason he couldn't have education or a degree or technical training (ie trade of some sort)- as in physically or mentally? If not then, no he is not successful and I would probably not be very interested in dating him. If he skates through life the easiest way out when it comes to work, he probably does the same in other areas- not attractive. A guy just working at Walmart and making $20,000 a year while he searches for something better or goes to school is much more attracitve.
To be fair, I have nothing against working at Walmart or other jobs that require no education or training if that's the most you are capable of or if it's all you can find for now. I do have a friend who, due to an accident when we were younger has a degree but can't physically or mentally handle the stress of a full-time job. She works as a part time VON assistant- I think it suits her and she is successful.0
