I’ll let you in on a little secret. There is no “secret” to life. There is no answer. No solutions. No matter what anyone tells you on an infomercial in the wee hours of the night.
More than 108 billion people have lived their lives, so if there were a secret to success or anything like that it would be widely known at this point. Statistically speaking, the chances of someone not having stumbled upon it by now are a breath short of impossible.
Rather than searching for answers, or a way to get ahead, simply focus on living a good life, being a decent human being. The way you live your life, and what you do during with the time you have, is all that really matters.
