What Does It Mean to Be Successful

I'm Asking: What Does It Mean to Be Successful?

Our definition of what is successful tends to morph through time. Remember high school superlatives? The guy and gal voted Most Likely to Succeed in my senior class were ranked numbers one and two, academically speaking. But, now I'd vote for people with more of a well-rounded resume and charisma, and many employers feel the same way about job applicants. Of course, it's important to do well in school, but it's definitely not everything. So tell me, what makes a person successful in your eyes?
