External Success

Then comes the external success, the one that has to do with how others percieve us. The end goal is to relay a certain image, and is always translated into power as a measure of success. Most humans are greedy when it comes to power, u noticed, and power can be broken down into one or several gains of the following.. wealth, intellect, political influence, social influence, physical strength, or gains of arms. To be portrayed as successful in the current hyper capitalistic world is to gain such power or influence; is there a way to do so without being internally corrupted in pursuit of power?

Lust in a position of power, corrupts power. A fine line while in pursuit of success.
