I want to suppose that more people genuinely want to see other people succeed at what they want to do. At least that is what I have observed in relation to my own situation. I do not know for certain that it applies to everyone, but there are probably enough supporters who wish to support, and see others succeed.
It would be nice if my supervisory chain of command at work were part of the group wanting to see success. To be fair, I suppose that they do want success. The bosses at work just receive pressures to meet goals set by higher ups.
