Don't confuse "what you do" with "who you are"!

Many people confuse the way they make a living--or even crazy stuff they might do--with who they really are. For example, if you work as a barber that is what you "do", not "who" you are. People with desirable jobs, which pay lots of money, are especially affected by this. In fact, almost all famous people are affected by this ailment. They forget they are human, just like the rest of us, and live their lives accordingly. They act as if there is no tomorrow and could care less who they hurt along the way. Elvis is another perfect example also. He forgot he was merely human, lived "larger than life", and paid the ultimate price...an untimely, early death. At the other end of the spectrum, drug users have also forgotten who they really are, and continue their road to self destruction completely unaware of their "lost humanity"...and that they are basically living life as an animal.
