There are different connotations around the word success! A wise person said success is when you achieve your dreams and failure is when you don’t get what you want. I think that’s one of the best answers to success because when you succeed, your dream is achieved.
Building tons of houses does not mean success, rich is different from being wealthy just as broke is different from being poor. Success is when you get what you want without violating the rules of others and being happy with your doings.
