079: What is Success?

Today we are back for another conversation with David and Stephen, exploring the concept of the “power of a great question.” Great questions can surface truth and reveal something fresh.  Specifically today we are exploring the question ‘What is success?’ and even more.. ‘what ISN’T success?’

“Thomas Merton talks about the idea that we set our ladders against a wall and spend our lives climbing to the top,” comments Stephen. “But then, when we finally get to the top, we realize the ladder is leaning against the wrong wall. This begs the question- what is success? Is it something out there in the future? Is it the attainment of something? What do I consider success? And what if the truth is that I can never be more successful than I currently am today?”
