Podcast: Sometimes You Have to Stink Up the Place To Be True to Yourself
Are you always true to yourself? Are you true to yourself even if you may offend other people in your life, or create a “stink?”
Let me tell you another true story.
A few years ago, I was living in Troutdale, Oregon, which is just east of Portland, Oregon, near the Columbia River Gorge. I was out running one morning during the early wintertime and I stepped on a small rock on the street and rolled my ankle. I had rolled my ankle many times in the past, but this time was different, I heard the bone snap.
I went to the health club seven days a week for the four weeks my ankle was in the cast to use the rowing machine. If you have ever broken a bone and experienced having a cast, you will understand that exercising and sweating on a daily basis causes the cloth material inside the cast to develop some very interesting and very potent smells.
At the end of four weeks, I went back to the orthopedic surgeon who sat on a little metal chair with wheels. He took out a saw to cut off my cast. Immediately after cutting through the cast and separating it into two pieces a horrible smell, something I have never experienced before, filled the room.
William Shakespeare, said in the play, Hamlet, in Act I , Scene III, “to thine own self be true.” So what do you need to do be true to yourself?
Being true to yourself helps you to create a positive impact in your own life and with other people in your life.
