Don’t demand your own way. Instead, want things to turn out the way they do turn out. Then you can relax.
Do not seek to have everything that happens happen as you wish, but wish for everything to happen as it actually does happen, and your life will be serene.
Ask not that events should happen as you will, but let your will be that events should happen as they do, and you shall have peace.
Seek not that the things which happen should happen as you wish; but wish the things which happen to be as they are, and you will have a tranquil flow of life.
Do not seek to have all things happen as you would choose them, but rather choose them to happen as they do; and so shall the current of your life flow free.
Demand not that events should happen as you wish; but wish them to happen as they do happen, and you will go on well.
Don’t demand that things happen as you wish, but wish that they happen as they do happen, and you will go on well.
Μὴ ζήτει τὰ γινόμενα γίνεσθαι ὡς θέλεις, ἀλλὰ θέλε τὰ γινόμενα ὡς γίνεται καὶ εὐροήσεις.
