Things Are Not What They Seem!

Here’s one of these stories that pops up all the time, a theme that repeats itself where things are not as they seem. It has appeared in Melbourne’s Herald Sun on page 9 on Saturday December 2018.

DISGRACED cycling star Lance Armstrong has revealed an early investment in taxi app Uber saved his family from financial ruin.

The father of five, who was exposed as a drugs cheat and stripped of his Tour de France titles, said he invested about $135,000 in the company in 2009 through a venture capital fund. At the time, Uber was valued at $5 million, but it is now thought to be worth as much as $165 billion.

Armstrong, 47, said “the cash he made from Uber kept him on his feet” after his doping scandal.

On the surface the outside package is saying look at me i’m a winner but on the inside there is a disconnect. The story here is about the human ego and the lengths it will go too to say “look at me”… “look at me”, i’m a winner.

So what would it be like to walk in the shoes of Lance Armstrong, that I do not know.
What I do know is that whilst our human behavior may be different our “nature” is the same.

The big question here is what was going through his “mind”.
