Mostly it comes with success. Be it success in business or success in politics success is a measure of “making it.”
With success often comes the trappings of success. I nice home, a nice car or maybe the ability to travel at will without caring the cost.
Those are tangible examples of having “made it” but, there are other ways of knowing.
In the world of pop culture, one can also “make it” and not all examples are good.
For some unknown reason, many pop culture icons strive to “make it” through adverse behavior and there are a slew of really bad celebrity mug shots out there proving the point.
Still others “make it” by proving Darwin was right. Case in point:
Timothy Treadwell believe he was one with grizzly bears. A bear enthusiast for years, he went to live with the beasts in Katmai National Park, Alaska in 1990. After 13 years, the Grizzly Manand his girlfriend, Amie Huguenard, who shared his belief that they, and the grizzlies, were on the same page, discovered they were, in fact…Not.
They were killed and mostly eaten by their neighbors gaining them both a Darwin Award.
Treadwell and Huguenard “made it” as urban legends.
Last week, a very unusual occurrence of “making it” occurred. It was not so unusual that this man “made it” but that he, “made it”…AGAIN.
