The higher realms [of success and fortune] seem to necessitate a corresponding increase in timeless qualities (which are often the initial cause for entrance into those very realms in the first place)…qualities like discipline, strategic thinking, honesty with oneself, compassion, humility—all those qualities echoed throughout countless stories and myths.

In other words, if I happen to win the lottery, I might take a couple days to celebrate, but then it’s time to get busy learning the ropes of my new full-time job:  lottery winner.  Otherwise, it seems that any sort of fame or fortune could go to my head, and bring me a hell of a lot lower than I ever imagined.
