From the success of projects like ‘Humans of New York’ series, we seem fascinated by the concept of learning about, and from, strangers on the street. Perhaps it’s because to us, they represents the average people we pass while going about our daily business. In an increasingly populated and globalized world, we frequently come into contact with people from a variety of backgrounds and life experiences, yet we rarely stop and speak to the people we pass. What could we learn from them if we had the chance to pick their brains? YouTube channel Soul Pancake went out and did just that, asking strangers on the street one question: “what’s your definition of success?” Their answers are insightful, heartwarming, and sometimes adorably funny. Watch the video below and get a new perspective on success.
