Let’s keep this “everyday, ordinary, Unassuming guru” conversation going. What do you think?
Yes, indeed, life is forever offering you ordinary gurus to help you with your next breakthrough. When you finally realize that, you will be awestruck by how often life intervenes to support you with your growth and advancement through the world.
As I mentioned in my last blog – children can be wonderful gurus, can’t they? Well in this story, Tiffany, my niece wasn’t the guru but she did attract one. When Tif was a tiny tot she was afraid of sea monsters. She had watched a scary movie that she was not supposed to watch, and sure enough it scared her.
In the movie, there was a monster that came out of the sea and terrorized the local village. Now, Tif was convinced that the ocean was a dangerous place to play. She’d get very upset and insist she wanted to leave whenever we took her to the beach.
One day, we decided to try one more time to cure her of her fear. The whole family – mom & dad, gram & gramp and uncle Bobby (that’s me) – took her to the seaside, hoping to convince her that there were no sea monsters. We were doing a terrible job at convincing her when along came an elderly gentleman with his beach chair and towel. He overheard the intervention and asked if he could help. Before we could answer, he told Tif that he was a magician, and that he’d cleared the ocean of sea monsters long ago.
This old gent got her attention. Tif asked how he did it. He said, “I just stare them down until they disappear.” He went on to say, “Whenever you look right at what you fear, it disappears.” My God! What a great lesson for me. And the super bonus is that it worked for Tiffany. She was in the ocean water splashing around in no time.
That was another everyday guru that came my way. How about you? Have you been giving this any thought? Every time you remember a guru that has passed by you, there is a great lesson that you are reminded of once again.
Right knowledge and success are inseparable. Let me help prove it to you.
