My true immediate aim should not be the development of a new career or the like, but a stronger inherent confidence in the manner of living that I have chosen for myself, however that may be outwardly manifest at any dynamic moment in time. That is, I need to overcome this pervasive urge to impress upon others the full extent of my being. If folks fail to appreciate my intellect, talent, and/or wisdom simply as a consequence of my annual earnings or the crookedness of my teeth, then I merely need to cease to value their judgment. The error is theirs and hence the onus is solely on them. Finis.
