Video: You’re More Successful Than You Realize

Success, as defined by Merriam-Webster, is “the fact of getting or achieving wealth, respect, or fame.”

Strayer University is making a movement to change that.

In a social experiment done by the university, people were asked to rate their own success on a scale of 1 to 10.

The numbers were generally low, and people didn’t seem too pleased with themselves.

But when their loved ones were asked to rate them, perspectives were changed and everyone smiled.

As it turns out, the average person doesn’t define success as merely wealth, respect, or fame.

It just goes to show, you really are more successful than you realize.

Click here to sign Stayer’s petition to change the Merriam-Webster definition of success.

For each signature, Stayer will donate 50 cents to Dress for Success.
