Success Built to Last
IN THIS SUMMARY
People who make an impact doing what matters most to them have the potential for enduring success. Some of the world’s most enduringly successful people have become so by harvesting their failures and summoning the courage to follow their passions. These individuals do not feel the need to rely on the approval of others to pursue their calling or cause. Most define success as the ability to make a difference, create lasting impact, and challenge conventional wisdom.
In Success Built to Last, authors Porras, Emery, and Thompson set out to inspire readers to find their own way to make a lasting difference by doing what matters to them. One must realize and accept that a compelling personal commitment to something that matters may not result in power, wealth, or fame, but in a life of meaningful work that makes a lasting impact on the lives of others.
