“Don’t aim at success …”

Dr Soroush’s Take: 

“”Sometimes, when you read a quotation that is profound, you don’t need to “busy” it or over crowd it with your humble words!

So this is going to be the smallest blog I have ever written. It is not a “cop-out”! I genuinely LOVE this quotation:

“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.”

― Viktor E. Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning

Huh?!! Huh?!! I told you it was profound!!

For now, lots of love at this beautiful time of year and hey, Happy New Year :)!””
