The way to success…

“The way to success is by surrender; passivity, not activity.

Relaxation, not intentness, should be now the rule.

Give up the feeling of responsibility, let go your hold,

Resign the care of your destiny to higher powers,

Be genuinely indifferent as to what becomes of it…

 

It is but the giving your private convulsive self a rest,

And finding that a greater Self is there.

The results, slow or sudden, or great or small,

Of the combined optimism and expectancy,

The regenerative phenomena which ensue on the abandonment of effort,

Remain firm facts of Human Nature.”

 

—–William James
