Monday morning reflection . . .
“… the more confident of their abilities that persons are the less they feel compelled to tell others of their achievement” a quote from Dr. Ben Carson, in his book, “Think Big: Unleashing Your POTENTIAL for EXCELLENCE.”
I know that, but sometimes I forget it.
You see, sometimes I find myself in situations where I feel I have to justify my existence or something I have done or am doing by explaining, who I am and what I am doing with my life, and then I end-up talking too much, or rambling, (yes, just like now) or maybe saying something silly, or well, stupid, and that’s silly, because I’m not stupid. :-)
How does that happen?
My perfect life scenario is one in which I go through an entire party or gathering without ever talking about myself. I simply ask and listen, ask and listen.
My perfect life is me doing that forever. Asking, listening, asking, listening.
So far it hasn’t happened, but I am confident it will, and when it does, I won’t even have to mention it.
