Success in the world is the bar that bests them all.
Any successful man/woman in world (with a fortune to spare), is a topic of speculation just as he/she was since the beginning of civilization.
“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife”- Jane Austen: Pride and Prejudice (1813)
The ultimate aim, is always rising to the top of the collective mound.
Success is a mistress that demands hard work, dedication and generally a sustained campaign (A series of military operations undertaken to achieve a large-scale objective during a war) to maintain and fortify one’s position in the world, country or the county.
Once one manages the campaign and had won the battles or at least had been on the winning side, one’s star rises rapidly. It is the reason why people have fought wars, battled in competitions and generally were willing to make a fool of themselves on TV for that elusive 15 minutes of fame.
In today’s world, success had been linked to physical appearances by a lot of research; No one is however willing to talk about the people, that become successful without being insanely attractive. There are a lot of people that despite being non- attractive in the terms of physical beauty, are successful entrepreneurs, have good jobs and have no trouble attracting attention. These people are there, right before our eyes. A man/woman with a fortune, is neither fat nor ugly, in the eyes of the people who want to learn from these people, marry them or in general be their friends.
