I define success as taking the hand you are dealt and making it work for you. Somebody with no education and an abusive past that has has kept a steady job and goes outside of their box to prosper is successful. Maybe they flip cars on the side to make extra money, or renovated a rental property or who knows what. On the flip side I'd say somebody born with a silver spoon that makes 10 times as much as the first guy, but has never done anything great and just flounders among the family business is not successful. I think most of us are somewhere in the middle.
