How do you Measure success.?

I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which one has overcome while trying to succeed. What are your thoughts?

Success for me is a happy life, that is, do what you like with whom you love.

I am a primary school teacher and a mostly usually is a successful child who does his or her best. When I taught at one school before each lesson I had to put a two sentences on the board for the children to see. "The learning objective is .... You will know you have been successful when you have ..." At the end of the lesson I discussed with the children how successful they had been. A child might be successful in their Maths test with a score of 98% and he or she might not have had any obstacles. Another child might have had problems at home so done their revision in their local library. They might have just got 42% in the Maths test but that was successful for them. They might not have a natural ability in Maths and have just tried really hard.
