what is success?
what is more important? joy in what you do, or being physically rich?
would you rather be dirt poor but be happy, or be rich and have the possibility of being unhappy?
what do you think?

there is nothing wrong with having both.
but what if you love to do a low paying job, yet you have the option to get an abundance of money form doing something you hate and there is the possibility for being unhappy with what you do? which is more important in life?

Success is doing what you love and being paid for it--and that pay can come in many forms; the ability to lay down to sleep without feeling guilty that you harmed anyone on your way up the ladder to success. My mentor told me, be careful of who's back you crush on the way up the ladder of success because it is firmly attached to the behind that you may need to kiss on your way back down. So, to be successful is dependent on to whom you ask. A monk may be successful when the perfect pitch is achieved in chanting, a wall street trader may say after they make $10 M, a farmer when they pick their first ripe ear of corn in the summer...............
