People were asked: How would the people in your life define your success? The answers were revealing

How would you rate your success on a scale of 1 – 10? How would the people in your life define your success? And how would they rate that success? These are just some of the questions people were asked as part of a moving video produced by Strayer University and Aplus.

The video was created to literally redefine the word ‘success’ by petitioning the Merriam Webster English dictionary.

According to Strayer University, 90% of Americans associate success with happiness rather than ‘the fact of getting or achieving wealth, respect, or fame’, which is the current Merriam-Webster definition of success.

If you agree with Strayer’s definition of success, sign the petition here and make a difference.
