Doing the right thing is (often) lonely.
Doing the right thing—according to your goals—is often lonely. Most people aren’t very focused, and that’s not limited to teenagers. There are middle managers without an ounce of ambition or focus and do not care to change that. If you want to end up like that, spend time around those people.
But if you want to do something different than the people around you, don’t be surprised when you’re the only one climbing up the mountain.
