The Self Leader Secret
Have you ever had some one recognize qualities in yourself that you some how were unable to notice. May be it was a school teacher who noticed or a boss or even a mentor pointed out an admirable quality that they saw in you.
When I entered high school at the age of thirteen, my English teacher who was also my drama teacher announced that she had written a play for us, entitled “parts of speech”. Having been involved in plays at elementary school level I wondered just what it would be like to be in a play at the high school level. As these thoughts crossed my mind I decided to sign up for the play hoping to get signed on as the person who draws the curtains and do other prep work. That way I could look on at the others and perhaps learn what would be expected of me.
Imagine my surprise when my English teacher decided to pick me to be the “verb” in this play. My teacher, being the writer and producer of the play knew exactly how she wanted each part performed. In my thinking I assumed that because a verb shows action, I felt that perhaps I would have to jump up and down on stage or show some sort of similar action.
Nothing could have prepared me for what my teacher had in mind. To my amazement I was told that the “verb” was to be portrayed as a “flirt”. I was speechless!
Immediately the word “hooker” flashed across my mind. It was a sight to see me on stage flirting from the distinguish looking “pronoun” to the person playing the part of the “preposition”, all the while trying to dismiss the word “hooker” from my mind.
As hilarious as that scene was in high school, it made me realize that others
often see qualities in us that we are not always aware of, and that these same distinctions help to mold and shape who we become. As I matured in life I was able develop on these acting skills when I went on to perform in more prominent productions, which is the lesson I believe my teacher was indicating to me in high school. This explains just how I felt after having read the multigenerational manuscript from the Neothink® society.
