Well you can be a successful archaeologist and fully enjoy your work, but it still may not be what some would characterize as "successful." I'd suggest some volunteer work on sites with the university's anthropology department or repuatable amateur groups.  See how you like it.  You aren't likely to be famous, and even less likely to be rich.  It may be more beneficial to enter a profession with more economic potential and impact, but keep the archaeology a hobby.

May I ask where you're located (general country--nothing specific, please)?  I don't like to read too much into an Internet moniker  but there are some regional possibilities with archaeology that cannot be underestimated when it comes down to career possibilities.
