How do you define success? Is it just money and power, or is there something more?

Recently, Arianna Huffington sat down with Marie Forleo to discuss Arianna’s view of success and the “Third Metric” of success: physical and emotional well-being.

Arianna’s new perspective began when she woke up in a pool of her own blood, she told Marie. She had been working long hours in the early years of the Huffington Post and had collapsed from exhaustion. The moment became a departure point for the life-long entrepreneur, author, and columnist. She has since written the bestselling book Thrive to share her new philosophy.

Arianna’s new definition of success makes her a Quiet Revolutionary -- she doesn’t just want more, she wants better.
