A little introspection...
To me, being successful means...
Love of family! THE most important thing. Being satisfied with "enough" - not worrying about excess. Someone once told me to value "People, Places and lastly THINGS" - in that order. People: friends and family. Places: home, places you've visited. Things: don't matter as much as we think they do at the time. Does NOT mean money and power.
My definition of success has not changed over time.
