I Hear Invoices
I am thinking of that movie with Brando " I coulda been a contender." the central theme of the coulda, shouda, woulda crowd. At sea, however, we have no CNN effect nor 57 channels to tell us our dancing, singing and comedy is not good enough as American Idol-click- or DWTS-click, TMZ-click or Reality TV.
The Way In Is The Way Out
It's all self referential which ends up being the way out of the Contender Syndrome and America’s culture of envy, and wanting be, do, and have more. The disease of more is really an indictment of our own judgments that we haven’t accomplished enough. Reaching our potential comes from a discrepancy between the ‘actual self’ (who we are), the ‘ideal self’ (who we’d like to be), and the ‘ought self’ (who we think others want us to be).
I am paying myself first.
