DISCIPLINE AND THE LESSONS


The world is staged on the eternal journey of people, the dreams and the reality they conceived. There is truth to the idea of places before its inhabitants, but so also people are interests of the places they live. The Newton law of Gravity, Einstein concept of time and space, the ingenuity of the Apple boss, Steve Jobs in technological designs and creativity, the rise of the richest men of the new age during the industrial age of the late 19th century to the early 20th century, the best of men is men at its best. One thing is certain the world had evolved through a state of entropy catalyzed by temporary state of insanity and abnormality.

“The human race is a monotonous affair. Most people spend the greatest part of their time working in order to live, and what little freedom remains so fills them with fear that they seek out any and every means to be rid of it.”  ― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, The Sorrows of Young Werther

In every generation while some leave to standout, others are captive of their fears, successes, talents and backgrounds. The world moves round its axis, the people move in a moving world. The idea of static is a concept of negativism or reverse motion; forward or backward as there are no mid-state.

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”  ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

We are who are, a product of our thought, our relationships and companies, the books we read and the choice we make. We live to tell a story, as one day we seize to exist (in this world) and the story we tell is a constituent of an evolving world, the magnitude and size is dependent on what we say and how we say them. We are shaped daily by our relationships sometime not in the short while but in the long run we live to tell the stories of our influences. The beauty of life is not to build a world of others but to build a world through the help and the input of others.

The status and the experience of one shape the story of the other; a relationship status quo, ‘the mentor, mentee’, ‘the teacher, student’, ‘the coach, trainee’. The purpose is clear one grooms the other, ‘the less is blessed of the greater’. 

While the word of a mentor are worth more than a 1000 shekels, the coach’s training and instruction speaks more than a 1000 word. The student/mentee is good for it; he is baptized in a lake of hot and ice. He is gathered; molded and formed He is the product of servant hood.

Like one master once clearly instructed his servants ‘go out into the highways and the lanes…, the words of my coach is clear; ‘ I train and teach’, ‘I pay attention to details’, I am a leader. The lessons are straight and heard ‘little foxes destroy the vine’ ‘be like your boss’
