Success is all timing. A wise person will say so. There is no free fall which means every success has few things in common. One has to have the determination, opportunity, commitment, hard work ethics and above all a soul with nebulous intention to lead. At this present moment our world is observing exactly what it is. By nature human beings are nice, yet, human beings are expected to be not perfect. Therefore, words like righteousness and just are designed in a way which requires having interpretation. History teaches us, interpretation stand tall at the influential side and it is always the little fish get drown under the water. And the generosities of the corporate world undoubtedly dictate us in everyday life. .
If I read you correctly, your message is this: Successful people will give you advice which may have worked for them and a select few. They may speak of good values yet they crushed those who are less fortunate. In reality they have no sense of community. Their evil side exhibits greed. In turn this greed destroys the fabric of life in every corner of the world.
