I would say my accomplishments make me feel successful and I feel successful when I am caught up with my freelance work. Another thing is if I can cut my daughter's fingernails & toenails. Now that is true success.

Balance between the two. Also, being happy most of the time. That is a true sign of success.

My relationship with friends and family. At the end of the day the love of those people are the only one that matters. I am successful in business, but I love being the most successful in my home and personal life.

I would say they can't be compared. Professionally, I wouldn't feel successful with just my relationships but I wouldn't feel successful personally with just my accomplishments. I need both.

Neither.  The only good things in my life are my 2 kids.  I have very flawed relations with the rest of my family and I don't have friends.  I have acquaintences.  

And I am the furthest thing from accomplished in any thing that I have attempted.  

Ffs, I suck at life in general.

My accomplishments would make me feel successful, but my family makes me feel happy.  Totally different.

my family is what makes me feel successful. to have a handsome husband who is my soulmate and best friend, and to have a son who is caring, funny, helpful, and so smart and well rounded makes me feel like i've won the lottery.  i also feel successful for meeting my husband in college and each of us getting to be at each others graduation (I was also 6 months pregnant when I walked across the stage). even tho i've made my own accomplishments at work, what makes me feel more successful is their support in doing that.

i love my little family...and can't wait till we sucessfully add 1 more :)
