    Is our society needing more successful people? Or, more restorers, storytellers, and  healers?

    I think our society needs to change its idea of what successful means.

    Being successful doesn't mean making all the money you can, while ignoring the consequences for the planet, and for people. Squeezing every last dime in profit out, without leaving behind clean air, clean water, a clean planet, and workers who are paid a living wage isn't success. It's greed.

    Success should include being someone who leaves the world a better place, rather than simply acquiring a pile of dollars.

      I agree with you. We need a shift in meaning  to what success means. We need restorers and storytellers to help others realize a new definition, a new meaning and purpose. Clean air and clean water are critical to us.

    The United States of America's society needs only one person who knows how to and is willing to turn this nation into the Constitutional state it was written to become but has never been implemented [see my hub "The Constitution's Spirit"] to achieve. If that is done then we will have a "successful" nation of people who are restorers, story tellers and healers.

    With the Constitution following its Preamble's "lowest common denominator" there would be "unity" without any divisions in this nation, everyone would know they have "justice" [proper compensation for actions], be able to live "Tranquilly, would know man and environment are properly "defended", everyone would be assured of their wellbeing or "Welfare" and would have the liberty to live independent of the state or subjected to it. That would achieve each of those status' you are concerned about as defined below.

    Successful people are people allowed to achieve their own personal goals.

    In living independent of economics and not schooled to prevent man's educating themselves our sanity and the earth's eco system would be restored.

    Those with spiritual vision would be allowed to tell their stories to anyone desiring to evolve to the next level of being.

    By living ecologically most people would have health far beyond the "symptom treating" the medical world uses to produce revenues for corporations.

    Charmaine please check this out. It fits right in with this question; https://makewealthhistory.org/2013/02/1 … -progress/
    It is so cool when we redefine happiness and wealth. It is so freeing when success means love of life. From health to joy the models must change.
    For me I know that times were danged hard 100 years ago. But the great news is that we can stop, take stock and just pluck the best from that time gone by and still live in comfort. I like the term organic, yes I know it is getting abused by food marketers nowadays, but to me it fits in with my "wholistic" mental approach. I just get so happy these days when I discover a bad bad thing in food and then free myself from it.
    I am successful when anyone in my family smiles. I am successful when I take on another's burden with joy in my heart.
    I think it safe to say that both my wife and I are happy with my lack of that odd kind of success that comes from money.
    We are so free!
