THE OVERCOMER

In order to accomplish something great; something truly worthwhile, your work must overcome you.  You must lose yourself to it.  It must become something which is more important — even than your own physical and psychological wellbeing.

Do not wonder that great artists so frequently overdose on drugs.

Do not wonder that missionaries go to areas of the world wrought with disease, violence and tyranny.

Do not wonder that you hear stories of soldiers losing limbs, only to fight to return to battle with their comrades.

Their work overcomes them.  That is why they are great.

  1. Be careful of that, though. I bought into this idea hook, line and sinker early in my career and ended up bleeding myself dry for a company that cast my empty carcass aside when they bored with me. First you must be sure that what you are building or working for is worthy and that you are not sacrificing yourself in the belief that eventually you will get something better. The thing you are building must be a worthy endeavor in and of itself.
