As the people below have said, it basically means that you being successful will not necessarily make you happy but you being happy will make you successful. I don't agree with it, to be honest.

I guess it just means that even if you're successful, it cannot guarantee your happiness. However your happiness will help lead you to success.

By me reading carefully, this is what I think:
Your happiness cannot come from your success, your success comes from happiness.
