Story of the old man and the baby, continued…

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

 In this story, the old man found that he created two different paths based on two different choices.

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

“I can’t” made him fall by the wayside convinced that his life was at an end, and so it would have been.

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

“I can” enabled him to get up, find strength available within himself, and run to victory.

Both were real and valid possibilities. What made the difference between these two choices? We might say this woman did what a good teacher does. She gave the man an opportunity to discover and demonstrate the strength he had inside. Then the old man did his part. He used his will to conquer his weakness and defeatism. He did find the strength within to carry out his mission. He chose how to respond to the opportunity, and used his will to choose victory over defeat.

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

Although this story shows how a particular situation can be an opportunity to overcome limitation, true and lasting change requires effort that goes beyond just one situation. One victory doesn’t solve every problem. To create lasting change, one victory must lead to new ways of thinking and acting.
