Thrive shines a light on the missing ingredient in our perception of success, which includes wellbeing, wonder, wisdom, and giving. It shows that success is about more than just money and power, which often drive people right into burnout, terrible health, and unhappiness.




by Arianna Huffington


Arianna Huffington might make you think of Wonder Woman. She's strong, she spreads good wherever she goes, and she does it all without sacrificing her own health or happiness in the process.

But Arianna is just as human as you and me, so when she sacrificed her health and happiness in the search of money and power, in 2007, the universe had to send her a wake-up call. Arianna fainted in her office, hit her head on her desk, and woke up in a puddle of blood. It took five stitches in her face and a broken cheekbone to realize that maybe there's more to life than just work.

In Thrive, she shares everything she's learned about true fulfillment since that day, to help you balance your ambition and keep you from burning yourself out on your path to success.

Favorite quote

We think, mistakenly, that success is the result of the amount of time we put in at work, instead of the quality of time we put in.
