I just finished the book The Power of No, but not without bookmarking a great story from my homeboy Gandhi.
A woman came to Gandhi and asked if he would please tell her son to stop eating sugar, to which he said yes, only he would do it the next week, so she should bring the boy back in seven days.
The woman, who would have to take a long trip twice now, and for no apparent reason, understandably asked upon her second arrival why he had not just gotten it done earlier. Why did she have to come back? Gandhi said it was because he had to stop eating sugar before asking anyone else to do so.
He had to make sure his own word was pure and true. That he was on the right frequency and not just emitting the noise of countless gurus with conflicted goals and ideas.
Now, how’s that for being the frickin change?
I leave you with this: What frequency is your noise on? How can you turn the dial and tune in to your authentic voice?
