DO SOMETHING FOR YOURSELF

One of the most terrifying periods of a man's life is shortly
after he has won what he wanted. His success might consist of
financial gain or domestic pleasure or anything else. It is
during this sunset of a success that the thrill exhausts it-
self, forcing acknowledgement of the impermanence of thrills.
With dread, he realizes what he must now do. He must wearily
climb another and another desired mountain, falling off every
new one.

But this is a clue. Every man who has ceased to fall off moun-
tains has observed this repetitiously painful pattern in himself.
After years of worried wondering what it was all about, he saw the
answer. He was trying to do something totally unnecessary - prove
himself. The realization dawned that self-proving is an endless
road with thousands of sudden bumps.

Then came the courage to do something for himself for the first
time in his life. Instead of trying to make illusions look like
facts, he let facts end his aching illusions.

I meant to post this in S&P. But.. oh well, I suppose the Pub could use a little S&P in their beers.


Cheers! :grin:
