What is success?

Some people think success is having achieved a certain income or educational level, some think it's peace or happiness. Educational institutions judge a student's success on passing certain standardized measures. So I wonder about what being successful really means.

Also, if what you're passionate about is also helping someone then you'll definitely feel successful. No amount of money or education can get you success
