Sharp - Our fantasies vs. real life
We idolize something or someone. Our fantasy comes with the built in presumption that we will think or feel a certain way if we get that idol or become like someone we so admire.
If I drive a Jaguar, I will feel confident and sexy.
If I became more like Johnny Depp, I will be less afraid.
I was in a Jaguar the other day and my knees still hurt.
Maybe Johnny Depp is not afraid of doing a movie, but I bet he would not do “Free Solo.”
There’s the imagined world of our fantasies and then there is real life.
What are you after?
What will get you there?
