    Jun 29 2011: Some others have said something similar and it may sound kinda lame, but I believe personal success is personal happiness. Only you can really determine if you are successful because it is your life and your opinion should be the only one that matters. If you can go to sleep at night feeling that you are happy with your life at this point then you are successful in my book.
