Most of us are 90% known, even by our most intimate companions. We live in a fear that if people really know about that one thing, or this one character flaw, they wouldn’t love or respect us. And to some degree this is true. There really are people out there looking for the flaws in others so they can pounce. But the reality is this..
The older I get the more I realize there are three major things that shape us: food, water and words. And the one that shapes us most is words. As I talk about in the video above, it was the words of my friend Bob that talked me off a ledge, many years ago. I’d failed in yet another relationship, and Bob was the one who called and told me who I was. He said, “Don, you’re good at relationships.”
When we choose to live a significant life, conflicts and obstacles transform from reasons to quit, to reminders of why we made the commitment in the first place. They turn into monuments, milestones, on the way to the fulfillment of the promise we made. They urge us on toward a hard-fought victory.
