Guess who said this

OK, here’s something interesting. Who said the following:

It’s a rare person who can achieve a major goal in life and not almost immediately start feeling sad, empty, and a little lost. If you look at the record – which in this case means newspapers, magazines, and TV news — you’ll see that an awful lot of people who achieve success, from Elvis Presley to Ivan Boesky, lose their direction or their ethics.

Actually, I don’t have to look at anyone else’s life to know that’s true. I’m as susceptible to that pitfall as anyone else . . . 

Evidently, someone who is at least self-aware. I would not have been able to guess correctly. Put your answer in the comments.

    It may explain why Trump is so wildly popular among his fan base. Most of the times, he sounds genuine.
