What does "successful" mean to you?

When women describe the kind of man they would like to meet, they often use the term "successful". As in "I'd like to find a man who is smart, witty, successful, and buff...."

The term seems to be shorthand for "paid higher than average" and/or has a high status job (ceo, doctor, professor, high-level manager). Is this accurate?

If so, how much money would it take for you to regard a man as "successful"? If successful means something different to you, how do you define it? Feel free to respond anonymously, as I don't log IP addresses.
