When we do something by accident, it simply means we do something we didn’t intend to do. We may take a wrong turn, press a wrong button, or forget to turn something on/off by accident.
This quote, from former soccer player Edson Arantes do Nascimento (aka Pelé), reminds us that the same doesn’t apply to success. Instead, success is on purpose. It happens with intention. More precisely, with “hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, [and] love of what you are doing or learning to do.” In other words, we can’t sit on the sidelines and wait for success to happen by accident. Rather, one and most likely all of the things listed above are required.
