“Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it. Discuss.”
Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it;a deceptively dangerous phrase. It is surelymeant to discourage lofty dreams accompanied by mundane laziness, but in actuality, it only serves to crush the ambitious.
Does it mean that success will only come to those who don’t desire it, or desire it so vaguely, that they are content to busy themselves with the pursuit of it while forgetting, even in the dark of night, the dream?
Does it then de facto exclude those who search? The idea that success is only bestowed on those pure souls who toil selflessly with warm hearts and cool brains is defeatist to those born with ambition.Rather, it should be said, that the existence of ambition, blended with a keen intuition for the path that most facilitates the realization of this ambition, is the surest way for the realization of a goal.That is from the point of view of the individual, but take a societal point of view instead. If a phrase is to be used as Truth, and in that sense influence those who are exposed to it, shouldn’t it be constructive? The quashing of the ambitious surely is neitherconstructive for the individual nor for society. A population that is content to busy themselves,goalless, akin to drones, surely would stifle creativity. Perhaps then, the paranoid mind could surmise, that this statement is intended to dull the masses, and let the ruthlessly ambitious be the only ones who achieve success; that of total societal control, buy esaay usa.
So, rather than undermine the desire for success, instead rephrase the sentence: Success comes to those who are not blinded by it. Do not be ashamed by the desire for success, but rather,realize that desire is the germ from which all success originates. Look for success, and in the meantime, live life with open eyes and curious heart, and learn from everything as it comes.
