Have you ever heard about Victor Frankel. No. (If yes I am so happy for you). “People become great, by their worst experiences.” So Victor Frankel was normal man, but his life turned upside down when he was arrested by Nazi camp. He faced the worst torture, no human has ever faced that.
As the day comes, every prodigy makes a decision and he made a decision. “No external influences can change, I am what I think and my internal conditions definitely influences the outer life.” So he started making life PROACTIVE. So these are beautiful sentences by him that is change from traditional success word we often here
“Again and again I therefore admonish my students in Europe and America: 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.”
