Find Your Rosebud


Recommended Posts



I recently read an interesting article about Elon Musk.

The super rich, super genius that is going to take us to mars.

He was talking about a recent break up he had.

What was interesting was the interview had to pause while he went and composed himself.

Apparently at the time of the interview, the breakup was fairly recent.

He admitted that his biggest fear is being alone.

Not with anybody to share his life with.

It reminded me of "Rosebud."

Rosebud is the name of the sled in the famous Orson Welles movie, "Citizen Kane."

A fictionalized account of William Randolph Hearst, the billionaire newspaper man.

At the end of the movie, the protagonist whispered, "Rosebud."

The name of his childhood sled.

He was recalling when he was a young child.

Poor but happy.

Having fun, being with his family, not worrying about anything.

In the movie, his financially poor dad gave him to another family hoping he'd have a better life.

It seems plenty of rich and famous people have a secret "weakness."

Even the strongest super heroes (like Superman) all have ONE weakness.

At the end of the original King Kong, the famous quote (which was really made up for the movie) was about how "it was beauty the killed the beast."

This reflects a fundamental part of human nature.

Of the human experience.

That no matter HOW MUCH outer success we can achieve, if we don't have healthy relationships, we'll feel empty inside.

It's almost as if all that worldly success is to keep us from facing what's missing inside.

But as the famous line goes, "No matter where you go, there you are."

Which means before you embark on ANY "worldly" venture, it might be a good idea to do some introspection.

Figure out what's going on deep inside.

Embrace it, accept it, and fix whatever needs fixing.

This takes time, and can be pretty scary.

But it is pretty easy.

All you need is your brain, a notebook, and a few minutes a day.
