Rethinking success

IF we are going to build a harmonious and inclusive Malaysia that can become progressive and livable, we need to encourage the inculcation of positive universal values in our society. One of the important values is how success is perceived.

The concept of success has long been intertwined with achievements that often revolve around wealth, power, and status. Society traditionally measures success by material possessions, professional accolades, and societal recognition. However, an evolving perspective suggests that our current ideas of success might need a substantial overhaul to foster a more empathetic, compassionate, and corruption-free society.
