I don’t agree. We must associate with people (full stop)
Jacky Smith

No not all hard working people are toxic, but I get what Jacky is saying. Those people who are so goal-driven that they’ll use any means necessary to obtain what they want, ethical or not.

Also, not sure how we’re defining success, but I can think of a lot of very hard working people who never get to achieve any big great dream, but bust their humps in food service, assembly lines and other more blue-collar lines of work that are never really mentioned by these “work hard and follow your dreams” type articles.
