ON BEING A REAL PERSON

It's Up to you

The central business of every human being is to be a real person. We possess by nature the factors out ofwhich personality can be made, and to organize them into effective personal life is every man's primary responsibility.
Frustrated, unhappy people, who cannot match themselves with life, constitute the greatest single tragedy in the world. In every kind of circumstance people entrusted with building their own personalities are making a mess of it, thereby plunging into an earthly hell.
Three elements enter into the building of personality: heredity, environment and personal response. We are not responsible for our heredity; much of our environment we cannot control; but the power to face life with an individual rejoinder-that we are responsible for. When acceptance of this responsibility involves self-condemnation, however, an alibi almost invariably rushes to the rescue. A college president says that after long dealing with students he is unsure whether the degree B.A. stands for Bachelor of Arts or Builder of Alibis.
On the lowest level this desire to escape blame expresses itself in emphasis upon luck. Fortunate people "get the breaks," men say; personal failure is due not so much to mistake as to mischance. That luck represents a real factor in human experience is evident, and he who does not expect ill fortune as one of the ingredients of life is trying to live in fairyland. But nothing finer has appeared on earth than unlucky people who are real persons. The determining element in their experience is not so much what happens to them as the way they take it.
