Today’s quote comes from Dōgen:
If he cannot stop the mind that seeks after fame and profit, he will spend his life without finding peace.Dōgen
Nowadays it seems like everybody is trying to be a social media influencer. Get that viral post or pointless Instagram photo – and for what?
Even offline we often make the mistake of training for a goal. Be the best. Get famous. Be seen. Be somebody. All without realizing that the will to succeed and our desire for fame only serve to slow down our progress.
