First I would like to point out to the reader, the word “you” is not refered particularly to the reader. I as the writer do not have the answer for you the reader. Rather this is an investigation together into this philosophy.
Before continuing I want to define and isolate the meaning of “success” in framework of this philosophy. “Success” is climbing higher into the ladder of hierarchical structure of the society. The whole hierarchical structure in the society can be translated into money, power and influence. In this context I am excluding the meaning of “Success” which can be translated into love and health.
Being effective in acquiring more success by using our friendships as tools to achieve our means. The fittest the more successful survivor will be happier because of more abundance and choices in his life. In this thinking morality is not pursued actively. Through this philosophy one achieves higher degree of morality unconsciously. It is totally opposite to one who is consciously living a good and moral life.
The statement: “We are too busy in our life with our self, that we do not get the most out of our life for our self.” The more I think about this statement the more profound this statement becomes.
Having a clear focus which is backed up by an intelligent, disciplined and determined mind is not enough to climb into the ladder of success. A strong platform of cooperation is the final ingredient which is needed to get to the next level. From the single selfish gene to this complex bodily structure of human beings there is tremendous cooperation. Every single unit wants to survive that is its main objection. To survive it has to cooperate with others, it has to help others to survive to help survive itself. To be selfish, to be in tune with our nature we need to be unselfish to support our selfish nature.
What does all this mean in practical terms? In order to reach for higher grounds, we need to support others to climb higher. We need to think in terms of the others instead of our self. We need to think how we can contribute instead of what we can get out of it. We need to create a strong wall of support for each other. In which ‘everybody’ has a certain sense of power which is created by this strong dynamism of the group. A foundation of support so strong that each person can build his own empires on it. This strong foundation can be created by being in service of each other. Seeing the challenges of life of others as our own responsibility.
I am not saying this from an altruistic point of view rather my reasons are very selfish and practical in nature. Majority of the people will disagree at this point, because they are already too busy or do not have the high energy level to go for the extra mile. These people have missed the whole point.
There are some very effective individuals who are successful. The success I am talking about is like the rays of sun and must not be confused for light of the bulb.
My own failures and losses in pursuit of success have made me see things beyond the visible and have forced me to hear sounds through the noise.
