Redefining “Success”

Herein lies the culmination of our review: “success” is an illusion. Granted, the human experience is full of tantalizing tokens, symbols and rituals to represent this apparently highly-sought status. But every diploma, certification, award, medal, pay-grade promotion and recognition is simply another construct of this brilliantly (and humanly) crafted mythology. ~ James Shelley

I’ve got nothing much to add. I’m stuck in the same “success trap” of my making.
