“He that would govern others, first should be Master of himself”. — Philip Massinger
If this is the case, then there really aren’t too many qualified leaders out there. Are there?
How hard do you work to gain mastery over yourself? Do you even care? Isn’t it an awful lot of work to polish things no one can immediately, if ever, see?
Then why do it? Simply this, you will know. And if you never get to the point where this is important to you, then you will never understand self-mastery. If you never understand this, you will always be frustrated with people, particularly yourself.
Hey, thanks for reading Mid Life Celebration. Your time is very important to you.
Heck, mine is too.
And I devote a fair piece of it to Mid Life Celebration.
Because it makes me feel like I’m helping some of you mid-life folks find a home where you can come to for a gentle push or pull.
Finding people who care is a challenge. Sometimes, that’s all that’s missing. We just need someone to tell us not to give up. Someone to tell us there is work to be done and we ought to do our fair share.
Someone to remind us that although we may feel like in this world, we are just one person, to another person, we may just be the world to them.
We all know what should be done. But the hard part is actually doing it.
I’ve always liked people who pushed me to be a better person.
Hope you like those kinds of people too. There aren’t too many of them, but they’re out there.
