For me, you already achieved success when you already get what you desired to have. If you want happiness, everyone that already happy with their life, they already achieved their target and be a successful person.
You can consider a crazy person already success, since they always being happy. No need to worry about their life. If you take my definition of success. Lol.
But, we know that every human in this earth never feel satisfied with what they have. If today, they said their target is to have a big house for their family, then they achieved their target. They already be a successful person, but then, they will desire to have something else and it will be a continuous process and will end only when they are dead.
We cannot blame our instinct to always makes a new target since we believe we have a room of improvement everyday and that makes us strive harder everyday to get what we want.
However, the road of success will never be easy. It is a rough path. There will be many turbulences. And yet, there will be a person who will give up in the middle of the road. There will be a person who keep on going in that path.
So, for me, a successful person is the one who never give up! They will keep on going to get what they want. They also believe that all turbulences are only a test from Him and always gladly to receive that test. They believe all tests only a learning process that Allah want to teach them, to become a stronger and a better person.
Wondrous is the affair of the believer for there is good for him in every matter and this is not the case with anyone except the believer. If he is happy, then he thanks Allah and thus there is good for him. If he is harmed, then he shows patience and thus there is good for him.

To turn into a new leaf is not easy, it’s really need a patience and passion. So, guys, never mocking others when they try to change for good. Your words can kill a person. Seriously, bear this in mind.
Hence, if you ask me, if I already met a successful person, yeah!
To all people that still living happily and always strive towards their target, this post is for you guys! Thank you for still living beautifully without giving up! Fighting! 💪🏻
