What is success?

Yesterday I came to know how people think about success. A guy was describing what success is and how to be a successful person. His speech reminded me Surah Al-Asr in Quran where Allah has mentioned about successful people:

1     By Al-Asr (the time).

2     Verily! Man is in loss,

3     Except those who believe (in Islamic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds, and recommend one another to the truth (i.e. order one another to perform all kinds of good deeds (Al-Maroof)which Allah has ordained, and abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds (Al-Munkar)which Allah has forbidden), and recommend one another to patience (for the sufferings, harms, and injuries which one may encounter in Allah’s Cause during preaching His religion of Islamic Monotheism or Jihad, etc.).
