    seeing a finished product and feeling the comfort of knowing that you accomplished it! some people equate success with a lot of money, it is actually an abundance of what you were aiming for.

    Source(s): a person living off the land far from civilization can find success in a job well done.

    One good definition is something to the effect that success is "The feeling within that one has when he/she is making significant progress toward meeting one's goals."

    The achievement of an objective or goal: An objective or goal is a personal or organizational desired end point in development. It is usually endeavored to be reached in finite time by setting deadlines.

    Opposite of "failure": Criteria for failure --

    The criteria for failure are heavily dependent on context of use, and may be relative to a particular observer or belief system. A situation considered to be a failure by one might be considered a success by another, particularly in cases of direct competition or a zero-sum game. As well, the degree of success or failure in a situation may be differently viewed by distinct observers or participants, such that a situation that one considers to be a failure, another might consider to be a success, a qualified success or a neutral situation.

    It may also be difficult or impossible to ascertain whether a situation meets criteria for failure or success due to ambiguous or ill-defined definition of those criteria. Finding useful and effective criteria, or heuristics, to judge the success or failure of a situation may itself be a significant task.
