There is only one success - to be able to spend your life in your own way.
Christopher Morley (American journalist, novelist)
Now take that saying (like all statements) with a grain of salt. If you hurt others in the process of achieving your success, you will be judged in the world to come.That is not a success. Furthermore, it is fairly easy to spend your life in your own way. Just exclude others from it!!! The only trouble is that again the bible discourages a solitary lifestyle and wants you to marry and have children. Ultimately, just because you spent your life in your own way, what have you done to make the world a better place? The wisdom of the statement lies in the fact that if you blend service to others, with doing things your own way, you have achieved great peace in your life. Because of the way G-d created us, most people love to be independent and do things "My Way".
