By failing to understand our weaknesses, we permit their exploitation. Their exploitation by others isn’t what we have to worry about though- it is our own hubris that will be our downfall. We are all vulnerable to ruin and it is our ego that sets us up for failure.
A rock is subject to the elements and so are we. Â The wind and the rain eat away at the surface, dust and grit slowly alter its features. What seems like a small effect has over time, the ability to shape us. Â We have to shield against that destruction by appreciating how it changes us and we must adapt toÂ that evolution by maintaining a yielding nature.
Understand our own nature and we can be less vulnerable.
