Here are the components that I use to define a successful life -happy childhoodgood schoolingat least a basic graduate degreea productive employment, in either business or servicea good wifehealthy progenyprovision for old ageAll these are basic needs, and a person can be successful, with all of these, he need not be asuper-achiever.Is this a realistic model ?
I don't believe these are necessarily basic needs, and I think you need first to determine what constitutes "success".
If success is judged from the viewpoint of the person whose life it is, then I suggest success is achieving a sense of satisfaction with one's life. No doubt there are illiterate, single fishermen on the shores of Lake Tanganyika who are content with their lot and consider their lives successful.

A successful life is to think about whether atoms and the universe could still exist without careers and culture. Success is to think about whether electricity, brains and metal need award ceremonies and political elections.
Success is to think about whether the Second World War can be made into a computer.

Achievement of planned goals is success.I think a basic graduate degree can be excluded from these components because an illiterate person can also be successful with his talent.
