This Element is an excerpt from Success Built to Last: Creating a Life that Matters (ISBN: 9780132287517) by Jerry Porras, Stewart Emery, and Mark Thompson. Available in print and digital formats.


Discover why conventional definitions of success can poison you and learn the three elements of real success that are “built to last”!


The standard descriptions of success must have been written for budding sociopaths. Nowhere do you find any reference to finding meaning, fulfillment, happiness, and lasting relationships. No mention of feeling fully alive while engaged and connected with a calling that matters to you. No thoughts about creating a legacy of service...The question is: why do we tolerate those definitions?
