Success doesn’t guarantee fulfillment, as you can clearly see in multiple anecdotes concerning celebrity and power.  Work hard, aim to produce, hold yourself accountable by being strategic/effectiveness-oriented, and take joy in the struggle.  This is a hard thing to accept, as it doesn’t fit into the transactional, tit-for-tat paradigm most of us have been inundated in.  The best shield against slim chances and likely futility is being detached from the outcome, and enjoying the activity.

  1. Success tends to happen more often when the fulfillment is extracted from the effort, regardless of outcome. The effect of failure is minimized as well. Success becomes just icing on the cake, and failure becomes a lesson in the form of a pill that is easier to swallow when the end result is NOT a direct part of the reward.
