Success? How?

December 16, 2009

I wonder, if it’s possible to be successful in life without being greedy. Greed, in essence, is wanting more. Therefore, isn’t it so that in the process of wanting more, you work towards it, and ultimately become successful?

Or is it such that success comes only when you least expect it? When you have no greed, no wants, no goal? If so, how does that all work out?

I can’t think of a better antonym to greed other than complacency.

Because when it’s when you stop yearning for anything, that you become complacent.

It is hard to believe that all the people out there that are successful in life are all complacent. But our culture and upbringing teaches us to never be greedy or ask for too much.

How to be successful like that? Confused much.
