Power should not be obtained by sabotage. That type of power will exploit itself because it begins as its on sabotager. To be a "boss" one must captivate people with their ability to lead; to lead with selflessness and committement to something greater than self. For many people, this is impossible. They cannot think past their own needs and desires. They do not realize that the foundation of life long happiness and success is grounded in doing good deeds for others.
Now, to be clear this by no-means means that you shouldn't have a ruthless pursuit to obtaining success through POSITIVE and passionate approaches to impacting your livelihood; in fact, you should assert the greatest power in your approach to living, and not to controlling how others live. Power should be a partner in propelling the growth of people who pursue and invest in the same opportunities and causes as you.
Our morals and values are the principals of how we govern, seek, and obtain power. Its [power] is routed deeply in all our relationships; you're either the possesser, distributor, or facilitator of it. Those who use it best, are well rounded in all facets. Power should not be micro-managed, it should be planted and watered with wisdom that is founded in an epistomology (totality of the discovery of knowledge). For the very young or the very inexperience, do not let the aforementioned (previous statement) drown out your understanding.
To put it simply: power is the friend to lifelong success and happiness. However, it must be free of ruthless corruption and selfishness, and molded with persistent fairness and consistency of ones morals and values. Lay down for no men or women in your pursuit for this type of power.
Be ambitious, vigorous, and ambitious everyday of your life in your pursuit of power. Great rulers of power become founding fathers of legacies that we learn from.
