TheExecutive has this thing about not meeting your idols. If that doesn’t make sense to you yet, it’s just something to think about.
It’s really easy to let people embody the ideas you believe in and I think it might be because it sets you up with escape clause you can always invoke. It’s much harder to accept that the responsibility, and even the belief, exists entirely within yourself.
It’s easy to let another person’s passion for an idea embody the strength of it itself and become hopelessly disillusioned if the two ever get muddled. It’s even easier to let the attention of others be the barometer of how you feel about yourself, forgetting that you’re staying the same, only the notice fluctuates.
The only thing that will never let you down are ideas and yourself. Just something to keep in mind.
