Continued from Liberated Thinking Part 2

What would be a good example of a generalized, sound-bite, broad concept?

The Door That Would Not Budge

The lessons that stick with us for life are the ones that blow our minds with their simplicity. They make us feel incompetent, if not ridiculous, but their impact weighs heavily in our future decisions. One of such lessons came to me early in life and has served me as a powerful guide when frustration sets. It was as if life had decided to give me a crash-course in misguided good intentions at that moment.
I love to open my speaking engagements with the tale of this lesson and though my audience gets a hearty chuckle out of it, they immediately understand the depth of such a powerful event, and from that moment I have their undivided attention.

The principles that I follow are part of my life because I have tested them and they have proven themselves, not because somebody told me that they were undeniable truths to which I should adhere.

Yes Folks, I’m Human

Baah-haa-haa! Was my reaction to the commotion created by the post “A Mermaid or A Whale Exposed.” I received emails categorizing me as insensitive and misogynistic, many unfriended me on Facebook, and many opted-out my mailing list.

Just as I was expecting.

I knew exactly what I getting into as soon as I finished writing my post. I knew it would test the thickness of my skin and my ability to keep a cool demeanor. It is the price for exposing politically incorrect or taboo topics. I touched a nerve in a subject where we – health professionals – are supposed to be huggy-touchy and dare not say what is boiling inside us.
