  • For me, success is having a house I own, having a job I love that provides for my family, and being surrounded with love from my partner, children, and animals. Also, a big success is raising a good person.

  • Internal happiness and self-sufficiency. Like, the happiest guy in the world who lives in his mom's basement is not successful to me; on the other hand, a multi-millionaire who sobs himself to bed every not is also not successful to me. If you can provide food, water, shelter and happiness for yourself, you're a success in my book.

  • I don't think there's a one-size-fits-all definition to success. Its very personal.

    I don't think we can measure success in wealth, possessions, or how many girls we've laid despite what society wants to push on us.

    I'd say if you're happy with where you're at and what you've accomplished then you've been successful in life.

    Its really difficult sometimes to be content with where you're at, always wanting what someone else has, but if you keep chasing someone else's aspirations you'll never be happy with yourself. There'll always be something you don't have or haven't done. If you can be happy with what you do have and what you have done then I think that's really important.

  • Having achieved their own goals
    I measure financial success as having enough money to do what you want, relationship by having the type of relationship that you want, social by having the friends that you want, etc. It really comes down to what you want and weather or not you have gotten it.
