Being financially stable, happy and not giving up. Success is following and achieving personal goals for me. So getting the grades for med school, getting in the top decile, having a lifelong job that won't bore me, that's the sort of goals I strive for, and if I achieve any of such, I will feel successful.

Achieving your personal set of goals.
Better, but still limiting as a definition, as success can be the accomplishment of goals set by another, not just self.

This thread seems more concerned with understanding participants' goals, rather than understanding concepts of success.

Achieving goals set by the self is much more fulfilling than fulfilling expectations of other individuals.

Success, to me, is being happy.

Do what makes you happy, be happy, and you’re successful?

Yup, I don't dispute that. Although understandings of "fulfillment" are subjective: psychological, emotional, social, professional, financial etc.

You can't get away with such a loose description, without conveying what a "happy life" means to you.
