The plight of the stubborn visionary

Steve Jobs unveiling the iPhone
Steve Jobs was a zealot and a narcissist. Does the world forgive him for those qualities?

 

The plight of the stubborn visionary.

There are few others with the (supportive) karma to encourage you to stay the course past the point where you have made significant progress.

This is a huge threshold to cross, but it’s still not enough to prove you are right.

So…

This is the point where the name callers – zealot, crazy, misfit, fool, narcissist, idiot – start looking and sounding like the Sirens call from Greek mythology.

The name callers want you to fall prey to their predictions.

At this point, more than any other in your journey, you cannot back down – even as the psychological pain begins to suffocate you.
