We all want to be as successful as possible with our time between now and the grave. I can’t say that they’ve wanted to fail. People get depressed, suicidal and repeatedly do self-destructive things, but we are not born yearning to get into these situations. We all want to be happy. We all want to do well. We all want to be successful.
It’s easy to lose yourself in your travels. You are but one person in a world where only the strong survive. There’s power in numbers, and being a loner will only keep you on the fringes for as long as you live. Solitude will never let you climb the social ladder; get to be as rich, famous or important as you think you deserve to be; nor will it help you achieve all of those dreams you’ve held for so long. We know what it takes to succeed in this world — we see it in the people we place on pedestals: the ruthlessness; the decisiveness without worry of consequences; the willingness to do whatever it takes to make yourself a success.
