Things to Think About
By Pepper de Callier
“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” George Bernard Shaw
In just two sentences, George Bernard Shaw shares with us one of the most powerful insights about life. It would be easy to over-intellectualize these sentences and assert that one brings about the other, but to do that would be to miss the brilliance of Shaw’s simplicity, the realization of which converts a life of wandering about to one of focus, direction, and purpose. Creating yourself may not be as difficult as you think once you get over that lump in your throat caused by realizing that it’s code for accepting personal responsibility for who you become in life.
Go ahead, relax, swallow that lump, and realize who’s really in control.
Till next time…
