I measure Success by how happy I am.  If I am serving others and have enough money to pay my bills and do some traveling, I am happy.  Therefore, I do consider myself a success.   if it was solely money that was the key to success, I would still be working.

To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. Ralph Waldo Emerson

I'll go with happiness as well as comfortability (it's pretty complicated). I don't think I could be/have been any more successful as a father then I have been. As a Realtor I'm successful enough that I'm not broke .

How do I measure business success...

I help protect and grow the wealth of families and individuals, it is in part of what brings me lasting joy. If I only helped a few, I'm not putting forth my best efforts and I personally would not be successful IMO.

I'm in business to monetarily prosper as well, not to starve!
