To me, success is personal. It's the internalisation of your achievements and the rewards you reap after your blood, sweat and tears went into something you put your mind to. You only need tunnel vision for this to happen. There's really no unit of measure as it is 'qualitative' in statistical terms. Your only yardstick would be ' self actualisation' on maslow's hierarchy of needs. Cheers!

One thing I've discovered is that if you measure success by other people's standards, it's meaningless. You can do the whole shopping list and still be a dismal wreck, a person who did nothing but what someone else said was important. After all, can you be a success at anything, if none of it was your idea?
