Money and fame are widely considered as markers of ‘success’, because we live in a society which values (or at least, has been conditioned to value) such concepts. I think more people accept now that they’re not gateways to happiness, however, and I think the pursuit of happiness is much more elusive than achieving ‘success’. Happiness is an individual, subjective thing, and if the expectations and ‘definitions’ of what WILL make you happy and what WILL make you successful were removed from society, people would be freed greatly (then again, remove nearly any aspect of how society works and people would be more ‘free’, non?).
