The Few...

Given the way the ego is wired, at some level everyone believes they are meant to be a king, a queen, a leader, a brain, a Christ, a Buddha, a rockstar, a satan, a Mother Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu... and that it's only a matter of time and/or circumstance that prevent us from attaining these exalted roles. But believing is universal (as is vanity). Confident assertion over time, on the other hand, is the skill of a privileged few. Rare indeed is the person who can focus on the future and avoid being taken advantage of by its arrival.
