Is the generation in education getting less intelligent than the ones before them or smarter?
You are talking as if inteligence were the result of education, and I think this is not the right approach to the subject. Another presuposition in your question is that all humans respond the same way to the same education system, and this is not the case. Education only gives you the tools to express your intelligence. I don't know a proper answer to your question, I don't think I have a real answer, but I would invite you to rephrase the question. My question would be: Is the current education system empowering our creativity and intelligence (which also depens on health and other sensitive subjects) or being a hinderance instead? The answer is complex because human evolution is a dynamic process, and no system can be fully responsive to this process. So a certain system which is useful, may become an obstacle later, or may be an obstacle for some people and a great help for other people, because not all humans respond the same way to a same process. In this context it would be easy to say that every educational system is going to fall apart, but this doesn't mean that it hasn't been helpful, it just has become outdated, and it has to be reinvented.

What is your definition of personal success?
That depends on what kind of "success" are you talking about. For some people, success means to be whealthy, or to reach certain goals before certain age, being famous, master a certain skill, etc. These are esterotyped ideas about success, and are most of the time related to something personal and egoistic (I did it, I made it, I am successful, I, Me, Yo, etc). But there is another kind of success, which I think it is the real success, which is to get to the realization that no matter how frustrating and painful your experiences may be, you will still working and living, doing whatsoever you have to do, knowing that sooner or later you will be successful, and if not you, someone after you. For example: an art student tries to master a certain skill, and he tries a few times, with no result, and then he quits. Another art student does the same, but he tries a million times until he achieves. He (the latter) is successful not because he has aquired the skill, but because he knew from the very beginning that he was capable of doing it, and he knows that he is capable of much more. And to extend this thought to humanity is being even more successful, because you know that is not your personal affaire to get the thing done, is not only your desire, is the desire of many, many people trough many generations, so you may not reach your personal success, but you will help the process, specially if your share your findings with others. Some other artist in the future will continue the work of the previous one, and so on, and art will not die with the artist. In this sense, each success contains a million failures behind. And the phony success that is being sold to us, with the facade of money, power, and personal reward is no more than a ghost. How can you be successful on your own when you depend so much on others?
