Philosophy Wire: Factors for success. (Why?) Factors for happiness.

Characteristics beyond intelligence can factor into someone's ability to succeed, according to research. New findings, which come from analyzing data from more than 11,000 West Point cadets, both strengthen early theories about grit and point to other attributes key to long-term achievement. [1]

We so constantly seek success.
But we cannot see that success is the safest way to failure.

There is no way to reach success in life by aiming at life.
For the aim of existence is death.

There is no way to find success in this cosmos by aiming at the top.
For the foundations of being lie deep beneath the dirt.

Go on.
See for yourself.

And the worms under the dirt will keep on crawling.
And the stars will laugh at you...

No, you are not trying to catch the uncatchable.
You are just wandering around trying to find how to throw away what you already have…

Would you ever search for something if you hadn’t already had it?
