When you think of the word "successful," who's the first person who comes to mind and why?

I could list 100 famous people, but I think that would be missing the point of this question. Famous doesn’t equal successful in my opinion. Success for me is having the financial freedom to explore whatever it is you want to explore. The most successful people I know are my aunt and uncle. They built careers out of their passions and make the most of their time together within their extremely busy schedules. Recently retired now, they plan to “go out at zero,” which I think is pretty awesome. They have many adventures planned for their retirement and they aren’t going to waste any time getting going on them.  I’m the closest thing they ever had to having a child (they had me when I was 17) and they have always been my heros. They work hard, play hard, and nap hard, and I love them dearly for it.

What about you? Who comes to your mind and why?
