What is the measure of success?

Climbing a mountain, reaching a summit, achieving a personal goal - what does this experience bring? It is gratifying isn't it? It gives us a boost, it bolsters our ego, it’s empowering.

Can there be a deeper meaning?

If success is constantly measured on external things or events - can desire for these things ever be sated?

What if success were based on a deeper experience - what if it were turned upsidedown and the journey was the part that mattered and summits became an incidental part of the process?

Does something, a trip for instance, need a result, to be finished, concluded, answered to be a success?

Where, afterall, is the finish line?
