Give it up.

Think about the things you are most passionate about in your life.
Think about the things that are most important to you.

Life is about balancing those two in a visceral sadistic cycle of trade offs.
Seeking the stage, the recognition, the fame and ultimately the money.. comes at a cost too great to even comprehend for most.
Settling down and seeking the simpler things... costs the heart of too many until it is too late.

Balance is found in giving up what costs the most and gives the least.

Power and balance

Only fools believing that winning a negotiation at the expense of the other side is actually a victory. In most cases, a "win" only guarantees a future retribution and more conflict. There is a big difference between wars, games and governing... not to mention actually living into a joint future. From churches, to families, to governments... We cannot win if we destroy and diminish our "opponent".. Did we learn nothing from WW1... The Ds and Rs are now functionally at war within our country. It may no longer matter who is right, as we are all losing.

President Obama's yes we can rhetoric was appealing, even intoxicating with its foundations built on hope and change, and peace, and prosperity. Unfortunately, his lack of experience has now drawn us all into recurring conflicts both internally and globally. Our only choices seem to be force and further division. This is a function of poor leadership.

Petty, self absorbed, closed minded... backed into their prover…
