Thanks, Brett, for another thought-provoking lesson. It hadn't occurred to me that extreme and sudden success could mirror extreme and sudden failure from a psychological perspective, but it certainly makes sense. In both cases, our "normal, safe" worlds are wholly disrupted. Getting back to our roots--our personal passions and callings--helps us maintain equilibrium, no matter the upheaval.
May all Rotarians find and live their personal passions throughout 2017!
