Men Chasing Success (& Fame)
Chasing success and fame are very common internal drives for many individuals and men. Chasing success is different from taking pride in being competent at what one does. To take pride in one’s work is both important and honorable. Chasing success is rooted in a faulty belief system and always includes relationships as collateral damage. When a man is chasing success relationships are of little importance unless they are directly tied to his ability to ‘reach’ success.
Chasing success can take the form of fantasizing about creating a new business, writing a seminal book, inventing a new product, producing a motion picture, etc. to name a few. These endeavors in and of themselves are not negative. We need men to create new meaningful businesses or to write new important books. However, what is the intention behind wanting to do so?
