When I was eleven years old, I took my father’s 8-iron into the yard with a couple of whiffle golf balls. I wanted to hit the ball far! I thought that if I did what felt “strong,” then I would hit the ball far. But my “strong” way usually produced poor results. I hardly hit the ball at all, and I certainly didn’t hit it well swinging the way I wanted to.
My father gently and patiently coached me so I could make a smooth, easy swing. It felt horrible, stiff, and restrictive. The ball flew high, straight, and far! I hated the swing; I hated doing it that way. Yet it worked. What produced good golf shots consistently was doing it my dad’s way. So I practiced doing it my dad’s way over and over and over.
In relationships it is the same way. There is a way that works – There is a way that doesn’t. the way that works doesn’t always feel “strong.”
The less I hide my insecurities, more JOY I have in my life.
The less I hide my insecurities, the more love I have to share.
The less I hide my insecurities, the more satisfaction in relationships,
The less I hide my insecurities, the more success I create.
HERE’S THE KICKER!
The less I hide my insecurities, the more SPIRITUAL CONNECTION I have with myself, others, and with the Divine.
