What is your definition of success?

I've recently read about two entrepreneurial, Swedish girls who love bicycles, technology and design. They are also into bicycle safety.
They spent seven years researching and working to invent a bicycle helmet worn like a collar that opens like an airbag in case of accident. And it works.

They succeeded although not everybody took them seriously. A quote from one of the links above - “If people say it’s impossible we have to prove them wrong.”

This and a talk by Angela Lee Duckworth made me think of a question I'd like to post - what is your definition of success?
