📝Achieving success by modifying one’s wants

Success is achieving what one wants. Most people and books focus on exactly that—“how to achieve what I want?” But there seems to be another road to success: modifying one’s desires, so one stops wanting what they wanted before.

That sounds grim, but that’s exactly what spiritual “detachment from worldly desires” means.

This does not mean, though, that you’ll be successful by other people’s measures.
