How do you define "being successful"?

the answers varies between people. how is the general one.i love the job i am doing except being too busy during holidays, why i am still holding on is i want to earn enough money for my overseas study. i am succeful in someones' eyes- get the job others admire. but life road will not stop here. it is a real long road.sometimes i feel difficult to stick to my dream...

      sometimes it is like Easier said than done....on one can predict what will happy 2moro. on some occasions, one have to sacrifice a lot to become succesful. at this moment, i hardly think one can feel happy. Similarly, an ordinary person without any achievement, he will probably feel happy always.

      it is a little bit contradicted. do u think ?
