Refrain From Pursuing Success

Let it come to you.

Success is like the Muse and must be courted obliquely and not directly.

Do not strive for success. The more you make it a target and shoot at it, the more likely you are to miss it.

Success, like pleasure, cannot be sought directly; it must come from one’s personal commitment to an objective bigger than themselves.
