  10. Don’t aim at success. The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it.

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.
