What is success ?

What is success ?
 A couple of things brought this question to mind today.
 I came across a man who had so much money that he didnt know what to do with it !. He also had divorce papers served that morning and was about as unhappy as it gets.
I also came across a lady who also had a very comfortable lifestyle and yet was preparing to take her husband who has dementia into a home. She too was distrought.
I pondered on how many "successful" people in the music business had reached their goal of fame, money, lifestyle, only to be a headline for all the wrong reasons such as drug overdose, suicide, Anorexia, bulimia.
                   Reaching your goal is a wonderful thing. Being happy in your skin for who you are and enjoying the creativity you possess is another. Life isnt easy, never has been, never will be, but appreciating the good times and being content with what you have accomplished and yet will accomplish in the future is the lifeblood of the artist.
                   I asked the question earlier.......What is success ?...Is it reaching a place ?
                                           ......or is it being IN a good place ?......What do you think ?.
