Big-head: (n) a conceited or arrogant person.
Conceited: “Look at what I can do!”
Arrogant: “I do it best.”
Where is the joy in doing?
Somewhere along the line, all of our athletes, superstars, politicians and celebrities grow weary of the aspect of the joy in the art or practice that brought them into notoriety.
They become professionally famous.
Their lives become the pursuit of maintaining that status, which demands that they feather their nest even as they deflower the reputations of competitors.
It is nasty business.
It’s based around the ridiculous premise that if you don’t toot your own horn, it won’t get tooted. Yet eventually people get tired of your brassy promotion. What then?
Is there any satisfaction remaining in just being able to share what you can do? Or does that ability have to be accompanied by awards, accolades and predominance?
The best way to get rid of a big head is to keep your focus shrunken to the blessedness of living out that which you originally dreamed to do.
If people enjoy it, so much the better.
