{January 4, 2010}   The Nature of Success

After watching Wes Welker get hurt yesterday, I’ve been thinking about the nature of success.  For some, it is a condition, a general state of being.  For others, it is a pinnacle, the top of a mountain that they can easily fall off.  When it is a life condition, like for Tiger Woods, it is generally a case of the person experiencing it, and being unable to appreciate it, or unable to think it could end.  For someone like Wes Welker, he is pushing so hard with his head down to reach the top of the mountain, he doesn’t recognize the pinnacle or slow down in time to keep himself from falling off.  The former I tend to feel gets what he deserves, the latter has my sympathy.  Makes me not sure about the value of success.
