WYSINWYG?! Is that a typo? No it’s not. Read on.
Take this quick questionnaire:
Do you think you know where your life is headed?
Do you feel that your losses and disappointments in life give you good reason to be resigned?
Do you feel that the hurt in your life has dampened (or killed) your trust and hope in a brighter future?yadda yadda yadda
They call it the OJ factor. That is: OJ as in OJ Simpson. Remember him? He clearly murdered his wife, yet he won his case and was acquitted on technicalities. Remember the jury jingle: “If the glove don’t fit, you gotta acquit.” Wonder why they didn’t turn it into a rap song…
He won, but… he lost. He isn’t sitting in a physical prison, yet he is locked in a psychological jail. A social pariah, OJ will never be trusted. He can play as many tennis games as he likes, but everyone knows that he is a cold-blooded murderer.yadda yadda yadda
So many of us are consumed with winning. And if we are relentless enough we may even get what we want. We win. Yes, we win, we get what we want, but we may not get what we need.
What may be even worse is that some people first have to win to even discover that they really lost. They simply could not be humbled with a loss; their egos and self-righteous bravado attitude could not take losing. Their humility will come from victory. They first have to win (win in their eyes that is) to be able to become open and realize the truth, that they really lost.
Had to post it here cuz I had to separate the 'hamudonet' from the 'degin' cuz they are SO different and I don't wanna ever look back and maybe compare the two posts in any which way.
