With me. It disagrees when it appears in its narrow, limited connotations : material, self-serving with delusional gains. It agrees when it pertains to aspirations, application and attainment, for improved life and personal capacity for making things happen.
So you may find me shaking my head at a Dalai Lama quote that pitches successful people against compassionate human beings, and emphasises his preference for the latter. I do not see the premises it is based on as correct. There is no real reason why agreeable success and compassion must be mutually exclusive. On the other hand, such a position is so far divorced from our real world, of real people situated from one end of personal evolution and attainment scale to the other, that the harker must be moved far into the sidelines.
The disagreeable aspect to success is inevitable to the phenomenal package, and hence must be accepted. People will err but, then or later, will ultimately learn; those who have not caught on the agreeable part cannot be faulted or denied of their urge to attain and succeed.
“May you succeed,” is one ancient-most blessing elders in India still shower on their protege in this day.
