“Rule Number One is this: If you’re open to learning, you get your life-lessons delivered as gently as the tickle of a feather. But if you’re defensive, if you stubbornly persist in being right instead of learning the lesson at hand, if you stop paying attention to the tickles, the nudges, the clues—boom! Sledgehammer.”

Gay Hendricks and Tinker Lindsay, from their book ‘The First Rule of Ten’

Coaching Point: Sure wish I had learned this long before I did. Simply breathing into lessons instead of resisting, what a difference!

And the lesson is going to be learned either way. One is simply quicker and easier.

The egoic mind loves to be Right and will defend untruth, well, until forced to change or it wakes up with an ah-ha.

Can you recall a lesson you learned the hard way that, looking back, you see you could have learned much easier?
