Disturbed by the same reason I am driven.
The essence of failure pervades those who are most successful yet we do not idolize them for it.
The difference between myself and other people is that most people want to hold the shiniest rock or possession, whereas I simply want the strongest and most durable.
Often times strong and pretty are not the same, but on the rare occasion where both occur, we truly find a diamond in the rough.
As I continue my endless search, digging for the truth and more knowledge, my focus remains on that which separates myself from everyone else.
Where one could say that I desire to succeed others could say I desire to fail.
If I cared to entertain the response, I would ask those others the definition of success without failure.
Today I keep my focus not on what others say or do.
Personally, I feel that as a betrayal upon myself. To contribute toward the success of dreams of others before myself, especially when there is nothing mutually beneficial from the other party does not seem productive.
With the entire world being an oasis, I'd rather water my own grass and dig somewhere else.
