What does being successful mean?
(2:13) “On Google, the phrase ‘how to be successful’ gives around 60 million results; on YouTube, I found almost 26 million videos; and on Amazon in the UK, I get more than 360,000 books on the topic. So what on earth is it that these people around the world are looking to achieve as they search for the answer to that question?”
(4:22) “If we dig into the history of success, I think we find something quite interesting, and we see how this has really evolved over time; in particular, the relationship between work and life and purpose.”
(8:30) “If you look it up, ‘success’ is the achievement of an aim or a purpose – and that means you get to decide what that aim or purpose is.”
(9:53) “It’s definitely easier to just plod along the expected path and not to question anything. The truth is that it can be pretty unsettling to effectively question everything you’ve ever worked towards.”
(11:37) “Let’s start to live a life that’s true to ourselves now and not wait until we’re sitting in that elderly home and it’s too late to do anything about it, wishing that we’d done other things. And, of course, to live that life that’s true to ourselves now, we need to work out what that life looks like.”
