* Becoming a Force of Nature
There are people who live their lives as if they were a force of nature. They seem to always get what they desire and be unaffected by the events around them. Others make it a rule to follow these people or get out of their way. These "forces of nature" can be violent and demanding, or seductive and compelling, or both. They often personify an energy. This energy may be specific or undefined in nature.
An example is the fictional Darth Vader who personifies an energy of sheer will.
Napoleon Bonaparte, Salvador Dali, Gambino crime boss John Gotti, and former president Bill Clinton are others to name a few. Not all of these "forces of nature" seek fame. Many aspire only to live their lives as they wish.
Have you ever met someone who lives life as if they are force of nature?
Because they have thought so thoroughly about what they want and how they want to live as they go after it, unforeseen events are rare and of little consequence.
The worst thing an unforeseen event might do is delay the inevitable attainment of their goal.
When the unforeseen occurs, they have a plan on how they will respond. That is the depth of their self-understanding.
Anyone who is within the presence of these rare people will feel both a soothing calmness and an unstoppable force emanating from their character.
Upon first evaluation, one might conclude that these living monoliths of achievement are motivated by endless ambition, but that would be inaccurate. Rather, they are moved by an unshakable sense of destiny.
While these people appear human in every way, they seem to move through the world more like a force of nature in and of themselves. Life is an adventure, and their goals and accomplishments are landmarks and milestones of their journey. They view success and failure with an unwavering detachment.
Their intent is so firm that all they know is their goal will be accomplished. Time is of no consequence to them because, like a god looking down from Mount Olympus, eventually all will transpire as they have laid it out and neither the winds, the waters, nor the wills of man can stop them.
They make their achievements seem easy and cause us to ask, "Why shouldn't I be able to do what they do?"
