A teacher told me a tale about two fisherman.
One was just a lowly fisherman.
He grew up by sea, his father was a fisherman, so too was he.
The other was a successful merchant.
One of the richest and most respected men in the kingdom.
Through a twist of fate he lost it all.
His business collapsed.
Friends jumped ship.
Desperate. Broken. Nowhere to turn.
He turned to sea.
Oh, that’s tragic, one might think.
How awful it must be to lose it all.
Yet, as the storyteller, perhaps Seneca, was pointing out…
They’re the same fisherman.
Does it matter that one had lost it all?
Or seeing how our perspective creates our experience of reality?
This game of life is not about winning or losing.
But won of the mind.
