What determines success?

A few questions that have been plaguing me...what determines success?  Is it the most prestigious degrees one can obtain?  Is it the highest annual income one receives?  Is it the best name brand clothes, cars, electronics one buys?  Or does true happiness triumph overall?  Who knows what the right answer is, but I'm sure everyone has a different answer and opinion. 

When we were young children and adolescents, our parents raised and taught us to become successful adults.  Get a good education and a good job will follow.  Yes, there are always bumps and detours along the way, but what road and destination will I end up on?  Will I be successful?  Will I be happy?  Only time will tell I guess.  My road has been bumpy long enough, I can only hope the rest of my journey will be smooth and a successful, happy one!
