Aiming For Success

Victor Frankl’s ‘Man’s Search for Meaning’ is one of the books that I read every couple of years as a reminder of what is important in life. This passage is one reason why - “Don’t aim for 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 that it only does so as a side-sect of one’s personal dedication to cause greater than oneself or as a 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.” In other words, do what you’re best at doing and let it happen.
