Sometimes success is misery in disguise.
Don’t chase something that will make you miserable if you catch it. Most people only have a rough idea of what they want. Sure, they know they want success—they know they want more money and more recognition—but that’s all they know. They don’t know how much money they want or why. They don’t know what kind of recognition they want or if it will last. They just have a hazy idea of something better. As a result, these people spend their lives chasing things that they don’t even want.
