You’re More Successful Than You Realize (A Social Experiment)

Hey, everyone! 😉

How is it going?

The guys from A Plus had people rate their success on a scale of 1 to 10. But when they asked their loved ones to do the same, their answers told a different story.

    This video is very touching! While I was watching it, it made me think about a poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson that a read a few months ago:
    What is Success?

    To laugh often and much;
    To win the respect of intelligent people
    and the affection of children;
    To earn the appreciation of honest critics
    and endure the betrayal of false friends;
    To appreciate beauty;
    To find the best in others;
    To leave the world a bit better, whether by
    a healthy child, a garden patch
    or a redeemed social condition;
    To know even one life has breathed
    easier because you have lived;
    This is to have succeeded.

    This poem speaks for itself …
    After I read it I felt so dumb, because success has nothing to do with money or status or name; It has to do with your heart and soul, live the life in a simply way and touch people’s heart.

      This poem brilliantly matches the message from the video. Amazing, amazing and amazing!
      Actually I’ve been thinking about that more and more. Especially when I ponder about my role as a teacher and human being in our society. Are we on the right path?

      Have we been successful?

      Thanks a million!

    Ooh teacher, i was really touched by this video. Amazing. Sometimes we try so hard to achieve somethings we forget we get good things a long the life. We select a dream and we focus on it. but when we can’t realize it we consider ouselves as a failed.
    So, it’s important to listen a friends, families to say something about us. This way we can realize we are trying hard to achieve our dreams (people usually to figure out it better than us) but other good things are happing together. And when the day arrive, it will be perfect. My dream is to be successful in all area in my life.rsrs Who not? kisses, thanks a lot.

      Hello, dear! To start with, I’m grateful for your comment.
      It’s widely known that achieving success is always hard, because it involves a lot of circumstances that are different from what we expect. We ought to deal with things we are never ready to; moreover, they can be not pleasant all the times.
      I got schocked at how we tend to diminish our potencial when we sould not, as well as some people overestimate their talents. Weird, at least!
      But let’s keep on developing ourselves!
