“Don’t aim at success. The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one’s personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one’s surrender to a person other than oneself. Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see that in the long-run—in the long-run, I say!—success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think about it.”
—Victor E. Frankl
Odd example but I guess it’s kinda like finding a bf, a lot of women say when they “don’t” try to actively find one they do. Good things come to those who wait and I guess there is a lot of validity to that statement. 🙂 Happy Thursday Rudri! -Iva
I liked this thought today 🙂
Great thoughts. I hope you are well. xx
I love this one!
Yes! I really believe so. A young woman at work who read my palm many years ago (and predicted many events that followed over the next ten years) had said the same thing to me.
