In the Name of Success

People can feel sorry for themselves when their own path to success is a struggle, or is fleeting. How many individuals are truly sure about who they are, and understand, appreciate and develop the talents they possess?

How many people have had early success only to struggle to maintain it? This is particularly so in the fickle worlds of fame, of sport, of entertainment, and even in business.

People who become ill or receive injuries which affect their earning capacity and independence are frequently regarded as being of less value, socially and economically, than others, especially in the mass media.  Advertisers frequently look for "successful" role models to endorse products and services, with success often defined in a shallow, materialistic way.
