We are often our own harshest critics, but that can sometimes hold us back. By asking people’s loved ones to rate their level of success, this social experiment shows us that we often seem more successful to others than to ourselves.

The video, which was created by Strayer University and Aplus is part of a campaign to literally redefine the word “success” by petitioning the Merriam-Webster English dictionary. According to Strayer University, 90% of Americans associate success with happiness rather than “the fact of getting or achieving wealth, respect, or fame,” which is the current Merriam-Webster definition of success. If you agree with their campaign, be sure to sign their petition.

People who are in the video were often surprised to see how their loved ones rated them, so remember – we should let our loved ones what we think of them more often and we might often be more successful than we realize.
