What helps us to go up in life? (Flatttery+Nominal work) or (Hard work + No flattery)

In the current scenario, people with a sweet tongue are more appreciated than the hard working community. Being straight forward simply doesnt help out in most cases.

    Feb 20 2013: Please clarify what "to go up in life" means. I am not familiar with the saying. For instance, stairs help us go up in life and so does a ladder. I do not think that is what you mean so please help me understand.

      When i mentioned going up in life, i meant climbing the ladder of success. NOt the literal stairs or an elevator.
