We Should know in perfect consciousness that human life is bestowed upon the conditioned soul to achieve spiritual success and the easiest possible procedure to attain this end is to chant the holy name of the Lord. – Srimad Bhagavatam, 02.01.12.
Success of our activities is when we have absorption in God.
Our span of life on earth is short. Our life will be crowned with success if the body wears out with constant discourses on Hari.
The three final instructions:- 1) Do not try to be a hero, simply try to be a speck in the hands of the spiritual master. 2) Always take shelter of Hari Naam & Hari Katha. 3) Beware of disunity.
If you are steady either in success or failure, that is called yoga. Don’t mind for the success or failure. Do act on behalf of the Supreme Lord and if you are steady in that position, then your working in spiritual platform is successful.
There is a Vedic axiom that we can judge a tree by the fruit it bears.

All these factors point to a similar conclusion: maybe material success is not sufficient on its own.
