Mental, physical, and emotional fulfillment. So yes, self-actualization. I could reject all those in a heartbeat for a yacht and passport though :wink:

Same for me due to the fact that self actualization entails becoming whole and balanced which i think is only reached after death

Happiness.

I've seen a poor man put his child to sleep and go back to his dirty old job, who's happier than a ceo who comes home only to find that his children don't even know him..

Anyway, to be happy, poor or rich, is a huge indicator of success to me. It's easy to be motivated to accomplish things, but if the intrinsic needs of joyous life aren't met, then what's the point of living?

Becoming someone with a particular place and purpose in the realm of human affairs, from which I would gain a sense of self-fulfillment. Basically, a niche to fit in and actually develop. I am seeking my niche, and only when I have attained it will I be satisfied and successful.

I somehow do not see happiness as a measure of success.
As happiness is just our fluctuating imagination of what we desire in life.
What I consider as a measure of success is how much of a difference that we make to someone or others' life?

If that difference makes him/her/them better than before, that's what I call as success.

Now, what is "better" ? The same question that we asked to ourselves about what is "success"?

In the end, if this principle is applied to one another, all people will be successful.

Happiness is the answer for me.

That is the ultimate answer for EVERYTHING we do in life. It should be!

I do not meassure success through fame, power, or wealth.
Success is when I have completed something.

success for me will be in finding a truly peaceful life. I don't like the concept of "happiness", for every happy moment you have, a low is sure to follow or precede it. But peace, if done correctly, can last until the end.

success to me is accomplishing goals (whatever they are, big or small) that i set out for myself. doesn't happen often, but when I do, it really is a great feeling.

“There are a few things that Success is not…
Success is not fame, money or power.

Success is waking up in the morning so excited about what you have to do that you literally FLY out of the door.
Success is getting to work with the people you love,
Success is finding a way of connecting and binding them together,
Success is connecting with the world.

Success is falling asleep knowing you did the best you could.
Success is joy, friendship and freedom


Success is <3”

Quoted from the movie Fame. This is truly what measure success to me. :3

I don't think I'd be happy if I get to the age of 40 and I'm still below corporate level, that's why I'm starting a business.

Starting my biz and working my ass off - that's what is going to/beginning to make me happy.

Also, if I do become successful at that but yet, still have no woman and child.. won't be quite as fulfilling.
