Success is an unincorporated community in Texas County, Missouri, United States. It is located about twelve miles northwest of Houston at the southern intersection of Routes 17 and 32.


The first settlement at Success was made in 1880. The nearby original town site is today officially known as "Old Success" and is located about one mile to the north. A post office called Success has been in operation since 1880. Founders of the community most likely named it "Success" in order to promote a mineral spa established there.
