Are there things you’re doing just for the achievement of fame and the approval of others? Are there things you want to do but are worried about what others will say? According to Montaigne, the best way to achieve peace of mind, tranquility and happiness is to shake off the desire for glory and approval from others. Live a life in accordance with your own dreams, goals and moral compass within the confines of society. Aim for peace of mind, not fame and glory.
