People who succeed because they needed to live with dignity, they are because I really feel hunger and distress.
"The lie has short legs," the saying goes and it seems to be true, although it is true that these short legs can move at high speed and serve with particular efficiency.
I always hear and read that people who succeed are people who have a strong will.
I keep shouting it from the rooftops: "Will NOT power." It is true that we can lie and emerge unscathed.
Why do I say "lie"? Because what really gives us energy, audacity and ingenuity, not the will but the real need, desire galling, gnawing penury, distressing scarcity, hunger gnaws the bowels us, desperation keeps us from sleeping.
When someone proposes the "voluntarism" imaginary solution being proposed, it leads him to assume that "God will provide" that "Every cloud has a silver sale" that "You better times" that "After seven lean years following seven years of plenty ".
Of course we can deceive. We do it all the time. When we believe in magical beings to come to our aid (gods, saints, virgins, animal totems, spells omnipotent), when we assume that everything is easy, when we imagine there like us who have found a way to live without effort, to spend laughing all the time, never feel pain, they found the recipe to hit the lottery, when we think that all that exists, we are deceiving ourselves and children.
People who succeed, ie they have what it takes to live a decent, though not about anything or live in a palace surrounded by servants and luxury, these are successful people because they really feel hunger and distress.
