What is the true definition of financial success? Although it varies from person to person it can usually include: the ability to pay bills without worry, being free of debt, and having enough money in savings for things such as emergencies, family vacations, retirement, college funds, and more.
Being financially successful is easier said than done. There are no quick fixes or magic formulas for achieving financial success. Financially successful people understand the difference between wants and needs and how to create clear financial objectives for achieving their goals.

I would add "they want control over their fate." So many write off money management as boring, but it's really about free dom. With savings, you can adjust your life as needed to remain your happiest and in control of your life. When you're bound by debt, you have no choice but to stay in that miserable job, location, house, etc.
I would add that they have a financial toolbox. The toolbox consists of a budget (one with a surplus), a balance where they own more than they owe and a life plan so that they spend their money coherently on what they want over time.
I would add that they "constantly analyze their financial lifestyle". Evaluating your financial lifestyle will show you how you are behaving when it comes to your money. Constantly examining your financial lifestyle can bring you long term financial success.
Some great advice here!
