Who is the one person who has had the biggest impact on your life? Throughout our lives, we encounter people who play different roles in our success story. Some have more of an impact than others, and the ones who truly stand out are the ones we remember as our biggest mentors and supporters. As Steve Harvey says, “Behind every success story are the people who help to make it happen.” Who is the person behind your story?

The Success Project: our initiative with Steve Harvey to engage our students and the general public to rethink success is going strong! In addition to partnering with Steve Harvey, Strayer University has also joined forces with SoulPancake, the popular YouTube entity, to visualize success through a four-part series of videos that explores what success means to different people.

Last week, we brought you the first video in the series, “How do YOU Define Success”. This week, we’re thrilled to announce the second video, “Success Coach”. This latest video focuses on the people behind the success story—the mentors, family members, friends, and role models who have inspired people to pursue their dream. Strayer University offers professional Success Coaches, but a success coach can be anybody who’s influenced your journey.

In this video, we asked both current Strayer University students and alumni to identify all the people in their lives who played a role in their success story, and to choose one to call and thank on camera. The responses are unedited, unscripted, and touching.

Watch the video to see the power of motivation. Have you told your biggest supporter how much they mean to you? Thank your success coach today!

Tweet or post on Facebook the person who has helped you achieve success with #StrayerSuccess to join the conversation!

Stay tuned for the third video “Shout it Out” debuting Tuesday, September 9, 2014.
