Today, you know Ariannna Huffington as the uber-successful founder of The Huffington Post, who is frequently featured power lists and probably has a net worth with a lot of 000000s.
But she prefers to define her success in other ways, as she outlines in her new book Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom and Wonder, and she thinks you should too.
Back in 2007, as mother of two getting by on five hours of sleep, the editor-in-chief of a two-year old Huffington Post collapsed of exhaustion, breaking her cheekbone in the process. “I had to slow down and reevaluate the choices I was making,” she told Businessweek.com.
She realized this definition of success—money and power—was really not success at all. Instead, she suggests we need to unplug and reconnect to what really matters. If we take the time to care of ourselves with meditation, sleep, and living mindfully, among other things, we can reach our fullest, truest potential.
It’s uncanny how well her message resonates with our mission here at PRACTICE Body Mind Soul. Thrive suggests a way of success that has and is BodyMindSoul living at its core! Huffington really knows what PRACTICE is all about.
