I’ve found myself wanting to be one of those people. I’m attracted to the fame and fortune and power that an individual has and when the opportunity is presented I lunge for it thinking that if I can get in good with this guy, then maybe I can reap some of the benefits. Maybe by name dropping I can become the most important guy in the room. It’s incredibly tempting to use people of power, popularity, and prosperity like they were disposable means to the greater good of me. It’s what I call the three P’s that attract superficial people and therefore superficial relationships.
