When our collective effort is united behind a singular purpose, the universe is then more aligned, and the energy that gathers behind this shared purpose is undeniably more effective.
These words bring to mind Victor Frankl and his memoirs in “Man’s Search for Meaning.” He calls for us to not focus on a particular outcome, but on how we want to be. It is inevitable that success will follow this way of being. Frankl wrote,
Don’t aim at success. The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one’s personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one’s surrender to a person other than oneself. Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success you have to let it happen by not caring about it.
