“Specific goals such as a net income, ideal weight, or a slick car can be fun and useful; just hold them lightly. If you drive yourself crazy over getting them, when they arrive you will not enjoy them. Found your journey on trust, and the right things will show up and stay. When anxiety is your keynote, attaining your goal will not remove your fear, but only intensify it. Struggle to get, struggle to keep. Instead of striving for the Sale of the Century, enjoy the Sail of the Century.
In the end, the only goal worth seeking is a satisfied soul. This has nothing to do with what is going on outside you and everything to do with what is going on inside you. The more you try to find it out there, the less you find it in here. The quest for self-knowledge is especially challenging in a world obsessed with toys and external distractions. Yet if you commit yourself to discovering the jewel that glows within your heart, it shall be yours forever.”
Alan Cohen, in “Why Your Life Sucks…And What You Can Do About It”
