Success is usually defined as achieving what one sets out to do, or reaching one's goals. I like this definition because it means success is self-determined, meaning one achieves success according to one's own idea of what it means. This however cannot really be defined alone because the goal must be a goal for something. This topic of course mostly discusses success in life, or a general feeling of being successful.

Mostly we see that this general feeling of life success comes from how a person evaluates the successes that he has achieved thus far. Does he think he has managed to achieve the goals he has set in life thus far? Does he think he is coping well with goals he has currently set his mind on? Some people may feel that they had been extremely successful one moment, looking, for example, at how successful he is financially, then feel like a total failure the next because he is old and lonely. This means he is successful financially yet he has failed socially. Mostly we see that people, especially people who are older, think of success in a more social manner, but this is a generalization.

Feelings of success of course leads to other positive affect like happiness and cognitive appraisals of being satisfied with life and also good self-esteem. In a way defining success with happiness is circular, because one is happy because one is successful, yet one is successful because one is happy. I think the reason "searching for happiness" doesn't work because of this circularity. One is never "happy enough" to feel successful and thus one cannot be successful enough to feel happy.

With all that though I think the most important thing in life is still being happy. To be happy I would want the people around me to be happy since I see happiness as so important and the people around me as important as well. Success for me then would probably be the happiness of all the people I love.

Success means one had achieved his goal. It does not mean wealth or power, but rather accomplishment.

I think success is when you've reached your final destination.
When you've finished something that you've worked hard to do.
Or even something that you didn't have to work that hard on.
As long as you've finished it.
Or as long as your happy with what you've done, then you've succeeded.
