The Monday Pep Talk | Redefining SUCCESS

"Success has largely been determined by money and power" the successful and very inspiring media entrepreneur Arianna Huffington said in her commencement speech at Smith College. "But we need a third metric. That should include be one based on well-being, wisdom, our ability to wonder and to give back. Don’t buy society’s definition of success", she said. "Because it’s not working for anyone. It’s not working for women, it's not working for men. It's only truly working for those who make pharmaceuticals for stress, sleeplessness and high blood pressure." Arianna Huffington, founder of the online newspaper with her name on it, should know a thing or two about work-life-balance. I love this "third metric of success" including well-being and the ability to wonder. Don´t miss out on this great speech, which you can read and/or watch here.  And, in case you´ve missed a previous pep talk from Arianna Huffington on success and failure...

  1. So inspiring! :) Giving back -or just giving, in general!- is one of the most rewarding things anybody can do. Have a great week! Xo,

  2. Tjäna andra och nå dina drömmar är ett motto man talar om mycket bland nätentreprenörer och jag tror på det till fullo! Vilka gåvor har man som verkligen kan hjälpa och tjäna andra? Frågan fick mig helt i spinn när jag började läsa om online business ganska nyligen. Kram!

  3. Clever lady...I love this...so true!
    Have a wonderful week.

  4. I love Arianna - she is so intelligent AND classy. This is such great advice...thanks for sharing!

  5. Väldigt kloka ord och inspirerande att höra framgångsrika kvinnors tal. kram Nilla
