Things to Think About - Until you make your life your own you are walking around in borrowed clothes

Things to Think About
By Pepper de Callier


“Until you make your life your own you are walking around in borrowed clothes.” Warren Bennis

Isn’t this a wonderful image?  Warren Bennis had such a gift for simplifying important, complex concepts and, in keeping with his metaphor, maybe we should look at life this way: Every time you do something that helps define yourself—an action, a comment, an achievement—it’s like adding something to your life’s wardrobe.

So based on this theory, what would someone be likely to see if they looked in your closet—yours, or someone else’s clothes?

Good luck on your journey!
