There are many forms of "success" in Hollywood, and it doesn't even have to be Hollywood for you to be "successful"! It could be some other city.

And you don't have to be a director to be "successful".

I have no desire at all to direct, I'm a sound recording! My definition of "success" it to make a good solid healthy income to raise a family on, and be managing sound departments (or more than just one person!) which are capturing great sound for the production.

Don't become an accountant please.

When you invest 10 dollars on a movie and it 'makes' 5. The Return on Investment is negative: it is a loss of 5 dollar. So failing is not making money. Just the amount of lost money can differ.

It is impossible to survive by making more money losing movies.

As an employee on a film set: yes: you make more money when you work on more movies if all movies hire someone for the same amount of time for the same amount of money. The employees are not the real stakeholders. Although a studio going out of business can mean they don't get their money. (Not sure what part unions can play in this scenario.)

But 9 failures means that the 10th movie needs to make up for the other losses AND make even more to make a profit.
