I Will Let You In On A Secret…
Question: After all is said and done, what is the secret of attaining the goal? There has to be one, since only a small percentage of people who come to the science of Kabbalah are able to attain it.
Dr. Laitman's Answer: I will let you in on a secret: If a person does not leave the path, then no matter what happens to him along the way, he attains the goal! There is no other formula for success.
A person goes through very difficult states, and sometimes he is unable to check what is happening to him. He looks back and can't even believe all of the things that happened to him. However, no matter what happens at every moment, he must only see one goal before him, and that is the key to success. Besides this, nothing else is important.
Therefore, if you ask me what I would wish a person, I would say, "Just one thing: stubbornness in attaining the goal!" Nothing else will help: not a special mind or refined sensitivity, not hard efforts, not knowledge, and not even friends who are beside you. You just have to grip the goal with your teeth like a bulldog and don't let go of it no matter what happens!
