It’s a dog eat dog world, some might say survival of the fittest. In life you have to develop wisdom.
Intelligence without wisdom, is like a bright light leading you nowhere. The internet is full of narcissists. Perhaps not intentionally, but none the less a fact yes, shameless self promoters and people full of false promises.
We are all looking for that elusive blueprint for success. There is one for you, but first you must realize that there is no substitute for hard work. Next you must be willing to persevere.
