Definition of Success


PearlsBeforeSwine

I’m not a big Huffington Post reader.  However, Arianna Huffington came out with her latest book, THRIVE: THE THIRD METRIC FOR REDEFINING SUCCESS AND CREATING A LIFE OF WELL-BEING, WISDOM AND WONDER.

A recent column by Cal Thomas reviewed her book and mentioned that she had re-thought the meaning of a good life and found it to be something quite different than how it is portrayed by pop culture.

“The pursuit of money and power (she writes) didn’t satisfy after she acquired a considerable amount of each.”  

“There are still millions desperately looking for the next promotion, the next million-dollar payday that they believe will satisfy their longing to feel better about themselves, or silence their dissatisfaction.”

Thomas shared one sentence that reinforced so much of my own thinking on success, wealth, etc.

“Have you noticed that when we die, our eulogies celebrate our lives very differently from the way society defines success?”

Here’s my thoughts on the DEFINITION OF SUCCESS from 25 Wishes.

Remember, “WEALTH IS THE ABUNDANCE OF THINGS THAT WE VALUE.”
