This is how life works in many ways. People who have the right attitude tend to get ahead much faster than those who don't. Even if you look at people who are not necessarily the friendliest (one attribute of a good attitude), someone like Larry Ellison for example, who is not reputed as ‘friendly' but still, his attitude is one of a winner-he has a good attitude in a certain way. And having this winner's attitude drives people to work with him.
A Servant's Spirit
It should be said that there's not much room for ego in the business of serving others. Sure, you can have a big ego and still provide massive value to people's lives. Just look at Trump, he helps provide housing for thousands of people through his building projects. Fortunately however, ego is not a requisite for success. Often times it is a barrier.
The big key is the attitude - are you in the business of providing value to others or not? If you want better results in your life, figure out how to provide more value to more people - it's just that simple and just that easy.
