In my opinion, we tend to do what pleases us instead of what is right, when faced the choice. For instance, I prefer to stay awake longer and enjoy socialization, while the right thing to do is to sleep on time. Maybe successful people are those who aren’t entirely driven by emotions; thus, capable of doing the right thing all the time, in other words ‘the right living’.

That being said, the quote is mentioned in “Seven habits of highly effective people” book as well. You might enjoy reading Dr. Covey’s idea about it.
