Success, Bill Gates said, is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose.
Same goes for good looking people. Beauty reduces the consciousness that it takes more to catch the heart of the right partner.
We often think being good at one thing is all we need to succeed, but hey, success is less of what you are good at, but more of what you are good for.
Of what use is beauty with no brains, culture without character, knowledge that does not impact, or skill that does not add value?
For any seemingly “good” thing to last, great attention we must pay to the unseen intrinsic component that sustains it.
