We’ve reached our conclusion of “If” by Rudyard Kipling.
As a reminder, Kipling has issued a challenge.
He has given us 16 things we must do to achieve the great payoff, which is:
“Yours in the earth and everything that’s in it
And, which is more, you’ll be a man my son.”
The payoff isn’t what you get.
It’s what you become.
A fully-functioning, autonomous adult who is never a victim and creates his or her own way in life.
You become the greatest thing a human being can become.
You become free.
