Oh - what a mind-boggling concept that will have many a narrow-minded, superficial, haughtier-than-thou but never holier-than-thou (in facts) nincompoopish pretend-success in society go... "ugggggghhh - whaaaa-aat?".
Most of these types stop themselves at mere appearances.
Most of them look at someone - anyone - for two seconds and think they've figured it aaaaaaaaaaaall out.
They have not figured themselves out, in their entire lives, and they have the gall to think that they can figure out someone else in two seconds flat.
It simply has to be very lonely being as stuck up and BLIND as THAT.
But that is another story... and a mere irate introduction to this story!
Mr. Suchorsky's inventiveness made up for his shortcomings - and he turned it all around on its head that way!
Kudos to him - now, if only everyone had the chance to do as he does.
One needs the basic three ingredients to accomplish that:
1) shortcomings to overcome (we ALL have them - even the haughty nincompoops!)
2) inventiveness... originality... creativity... it helps immensely in finding ways to overcome the first ingredient! And then we need...
3) the necessary basic means to put into action the inventive solutions that we can think of! In Mr. Suchorsky's case, having "a regular 9-to-5 job as a multimedia artist" helped tremendously in the achievement of the lifelong dream of being a film director on any level really...
Maybe purchasing a Sony camcorder on sale at the local Future Shop would have gotten the ball rolling too, for the "common man" out there... But a career in multimedia is better, you will grant that.
It remains a tad bizarre to see those who have "a regular 9-to-5 job" already - a career even - wanting more... and more... and still more!
And those without anything getting stripped of what little that they do have already.
The American Dream speaks of "the pursuit of happiness" and of one's lifelong dream(s) too... of course...
The Holy Bible states it like it REALLY is... in this cold cruel world, of course:
Those who work with combed flax will despair, the weavers of fine linen will lose hope.
What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self?
Whoever tries to keep his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it.
The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.
Matthew 13:12 (New International Version)
Whoever has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him.
2 Corinthians 4:16
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.
Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
And you have forgotten that word of encouragement that addresses you as sons: "My son, do not make light of the Lord's discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you
2 John 1:8
Watch out that you do not lose what you have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully.
Let it be that you all grasp the true meaning of that - specifically the last three verses there...
New International Version (NIV)
