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?
