You'll never achieve real success unless you like what you're doing.
What you do is more important than how much money you make. How you feel about what you do is more important than what you do.
The more you love what you're doing, the more successful it will be for you. Don't set compensation as your goal.
Find the work you like and the compensation will follow.
You don't pay the price of success, you enjoy the price of success.
