I was taught a success means a successful man and not achievement. Is that right?

This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information. See the FAQ for guidance on how to improve it.
Success can be used as an uncountable noun.
It can also be used as a countable noun to refer to a person or a thing.
