So many times we feel like life is kicking the crap out of us, one thing after another, all in the name of the transformational journey.
So how do we find success in the midst of so many SPLATS, aka challenges and changes…….read on….
I have always loved this story and share it many times with my clients.
A man meets a guru in the road. The man asks the guru, “Which way is success?”
The robed, bearded sage speaks not, but points to a place off in the distance.
The man, thrilled by the prospect of quick and easy success, rushes off in the appropriate direction. Suddenly, there comes a loud “SPLAT.” Eventually, the man limps back, tattered and stunned, assuming he must have misinterpreted the message. He repeats his question to the guru, who again points silently in the same direction.
The man obediently walks off once more. This time the splat is deafening, and when the man crawls back, he is bloody, broken, tattered, and irate. “I asked you which way is success,” he screams at the guru. “I followed the direction you indicated. And all I got was splatted! No more of this pointing! Talk!”
Only then does the guru speak, and what he says is this: “Success IS that way. Just a little PAST the splat.”
