Mrs Tiger Woods … Human Beings Are Meant To Make Mistakes!
Perhaps the most important behavioral characteristic of human beings that is being suppressed is our willingness to allow others to make mistakes, and to learn from them.
How difficult it is to give up our judgment of them, to give up our rite to assess them … and to love them even more than we did before, and yet it is all possible.
I recently wrote a post on Tiger’s attraction of the media and his ability to convert his popularity into financial gain for himself and his family, and obviously his attraction magnet charisma and charm attracted more than we say is OK.
No one else knows what it is like to become as successful as Tiger has … I believe David Beckham the soccer player would possible come close, and yes there are many US and European footballers, and baseball players that could be close … but Tiger was considered by many to be in a class of his own.
When my wife mentioned some weeks ago that divorce bells were ringing for ‘Tiger’ … we both couldn’t help but feel how sad that would be for everyone concerned.
I am personally one of the best mistake makers alive today, one of the best. Sometimes I have been really righteous, selfish, arrogant and yet for the majority of my life I’m lovable, devoted, committed, and a bold stand for what I believe in, including the opportunity for everyone on our beautiful planet to be living the lifestyle of a billionaire and yet some people disapprove of me, dislike me (or worse) and that’s their choice in a free world.
I was very very lucky at the age of twenty to have a friend’s mother share that she considered her affair, what she learned from it and dealt with it, and how she grew as a woman and a human being to be one of the most important experiences of her life.
How many ‘opportunities’ to grow as a man or a woman have we allowed to disappear down the stream by making divorce such an easy ‘out’ when a relationship gets tough? The damage bill for our out of integrity … for our indiscretions and lies is enormous and sadly has become accepted, or the norm in society.
At the moment I am building a not for profit organisation designed to FOCUS attention on all the healthy, green and sustainable aspects of live –> because we always and only get what we FOCUS ON. It’s called Your Healthy Planet.com …
I am being coached in the area of LEVERAGE, which only a small percentage of the world’s population even understands let alone is skilled in.
To be able to acquire the skills require me to go outside my comfort zone and to face possible rejection, face failing, face being ridiculed and called a nut job.
It would be so EASY to stay in my comfort zone Mr and Mrs Woods but I am committed to greatness, I’m committed to making a BIG DIFFERENCE in a world that is struggling for leaders and looking for champions.
I have no idea if you would even get to read this blog, and I’ve thought what am I doing even writing it … but I am committed to amazing relationships, authentic, loving, growing relationships.
I’ve been through a divorce as have many others and it has caused real grief and ‘collateral damage’ everywhere. The amount of money or the position one holds seems to have little relevance or impact on the level of damage that divorce can cause.
There is an opportunity for you to make an enormous and lasting difference to life as we know it. And you don’t have to either … it’s not your responsibility to set the standard of relationships in your country or on planet earth, to set the standard for ‘being related’.
But it is an opportunity.
