Dr. Viktor Frankl

“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 demands you to do and go on to carry it 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 of it”

Dr. Viktor Frankl, Austrian Neurologist and Psychiatrist. Holocaust Survivor and Founder of Logotherapy.

As quoted in Man’s Search for Meaning.

  1. Success comes from within, knowing the true worth of our human potential……..Success begins with self-affirmation…… It’s that staunch belief that when I love what I do, success has to come….. When the mood is positive, we give rise to our self-esteem leading to relentless pursuit of success…..Happiness tends to instill positivity towards life goals including a healthy mind and healthy relationships……!!!!
    Success comes to those who have a definite purpose. Their relentless efforts towards definite purpose come from happiness within to affirm that victory is the only acceptable outcome…!!
