We commend some people for their achievements but we cannot agree with the entirety of their personality which has made them achieve them in the first place.
Actions and the mind are inter-twined. It is easy, from the outset, to separate the achiever from her/his achievement and diss the one and praise the other. It is easy to selectively say we desire a certain achievement and not consider what it takes to achieve it. Achievements are just by-products of a lived experience. When we cannot relate to the actions of a person that led to a particular result we are grasping at our own version of the achievement, which can be a dangerous thing to correlate with.
A man used to walking the highway will have a very different frame of mind than the one walking the woods and each‘s mental capability towards a future challenge would differ entirely even though they reach the same destination through their routes.
