The biggest barrier to a successful career is not a lack of opportunities, the job market or your city. It’s certain people.
Specifically, antisocial people—people who are devious, mean-spirited, cruel, hostile or negative. People who oppose you, treat you with disrespect and cause you trouble. “When we trace the cause of a failing business, we will inevitably discover somewhere in its ranks the antisocial personality hard at work.”
Hitler loved children and pets. He was a vegetarian who neither smoked nor drank. He was kind and considerate to the ladies, secretaries and chauffeurs. People thought Hitler was a nice guy, yet he ordered the deaths of millions. Most antisocial personalities are not famous. In fact, they are rarely obvious.
