Why Some Of Us Won't Ever Make It "There!"
In my travels I’ve noticed that many people – because of the consistency in my work here online – mention when they haven’t seen me or my work in a span of time that I am almost “there”.
Well one day I decided to figure out where this “there” is, and for the life of me I just could never locate it. While everyone seems to know when you are getting closer to being “there”, they could never tell you where “there” is. When they seem to think that you are already “there”, they then want to befriend you because they feel that they can get “there” also.
Not to say that everyone is an opportunistic snake or that an individual will only make a point of reaching out to you on a friendly level only because they have a sinister self serving motive. No. I could never believe that wholeheartedly. But I will say that so many people have a huge misconception on what making it is and what being “there” is all about.
I’ve learned through my own observations and actual experiences that there is no “there” and that the masses of individuals that dwell on this earth who are so hellbent on getting “there” are barking up the wrong tree and running a rat race in a maze that actually runs them around in circles. Every now and then they may score some type of perceived “victory” that makes them feel as though they are getting closer, but that feeling of gain is fleeting and only lasts but for so long before they are feeling out of the loop and in need of that upwardly mobile fix of a feel once again.
Because many of us waste precious energy trying to get to a place that doesn’t exist but we never find this out until it’s just too late. We find out long after our ability to truly be effective in creating a long and prosperous legacy has dissipated and then the feelings of regret manifest as we look back on the years of time spent trying to live a dream that was conjured up in someone else’s head.
