Do not glorify the achievers
So the people will not squabble
Do not treasure goods that are hard to obtain
So the people will not become thieves
Do not show the desired things
So their hearts will not be confused
Thus the governance of the sage:
Empties their hearts
Fills their bellies
Weakens their ambitions
Strengthens their bones
Let the people have no cunning and no greed
So those who scheme will not dare to meddle
Act without contrivance
And nothing will be beyond control
Wanting something takes away the ability to have it. Having no worldly ambitions - fame, money etc. will lead to true happiness. It is the path. It is the way. Having courage to follow it is hard - especially with so many distractions in the modern world. It takes steadfastness. It takes faith. It's also important to hold it lightly with compassion and kindness, especially compassion towards oneself. One cannot truly feel compassion for others unless they feel it for themselves.
Everything starts from within. Observe how you have been conditioned and how all your thoughts, words and actions are the result of those conditions. Perhaps you were told you needed to be successful, make a name for yourself, leave a legacy.
You don't need to do anything. Simply allow life to unfold like the petals of a flower. Are you so vain that you think you can change your destiny? If you allow the way to appear before you, instead of trying to force things then all will be revealed in good time. If you push yourself it will take you away from the path and it will take longer to arrive at your destination which is always there and never changes. How you get there is up to you.
