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 dedication to a cause greater than oneself

or as the by-product of one's surrender to a person other than oneself.


—Viktor Frankl, A Man's Search for Meaning
