Succes and failure is a phantasy the conditioned mind adds to perception.
But for humanoids relatively it's depended on their expectations, desires etc.
For instance when folks say a 100 is a succes and 7 is a failure it's due to identifying the past with the present (and future projections kick in) it's how the misconception of a personality comes into being. One of the most popular Buddhist teachers at the moment worldwide is also showing corruption due to his success and attention his workshops/retreats are getting, spirituality and popularity/business models don't go hand in hand, even if the intention was not there at the start, it happens to the best of them, on the other hand it's only a gift because it uproots vasanas, nevertheless the focus and attention is usually turned outward because of their awakening conviction. Better preach what one practises only.

Dear Guo Gu,
Thank you for the info, & for extending such a generous invitation.
I'm able to use the funds from my tickets for future travel with the airline, and, I do think it's time for a short retreat. If I can get the days in May off, I will endeavor to attend.
