We all live in an universe where things naturally deteriorate over time. Most people, unless they have horseshoes, lead ordinary lives with only a variation on the details. People are predominately insecure creatures. That’s why they want to dress, think the same, and belong to organizations that have their "values". The trick for success is to become an independent thinker and to look for opportunities that the ordinary person misses or ignores because of their in built lack of confidence.
