Secret of Success Lies In Activities Undertaken With a Spirit of Surrender to an Ideal - Swami Chinmayananda

We can discover our joy in the precision and perfection of the work that we turn out. Whether others recognize it or not, we get satisfaction that we did our work as best as we could.

The quality of action depends upon the ideals which guide and inspire an individual.
A person with no ideals feels fatigued in this work. This fatigue is caused by the strain and stress which we invite, by craving for indulgence in sense objects and ceaseless expectation of the fruits of our actions.
The secret of success, therefore, lies in activities undertaken with a spirit of surrender to an ideal.

Swami Chinmayananda
