The Cracked Pot
Letters on Life # 3.
Several years ago I had such an experience that stays with me to this day. This experience happened when I took part in a weekend break workshop funded by the Actors Institute which was developed to enhance one’s capacity to provide far better discussions. The fact is, in the procedure of attempting to be excellent, we typically concentrate on our blemishes as well as often that is all we see.
One pot was ideal as well as constantly supplied a complete part of water at the end of the stroll, while the various other pot had a fracture in it as well as got here just half complete. This went on for a complete 2 years and also the ideal pot was happy of its achievements, yet the bad broken pot was embarrassed of its flaws and also of the reality that it was just able to achieve fifty percent of just what it had actually been made to do. The broken pot mobilized up sufficient nerve to have its very own discussion with the water holder.
Each of us has our very own special imperfections and also in our very own means we are all split pots. We all recognize we have flaws as well as to differing levels we have embarassment around them. Determine one flaw that maintains coming up for you as well as find exactly what present is concealed in that blemish.
Allow me understand exactly what you find. I enjoy obtaining your several actions and also comments as well as if you have various other tales to share allow me learn about them. Don’t hesitate to hand down this letter to the pals in your circle as well as allow them understand about the benefits of getting on the trip.
Every day his slave, the water holder, would certainly stroll from his master’s home to the stream with 2 big pots, each hung on other ends of a post which he brought throughout his neck. One pot was excellent as well as constantly provided a complete part of water at the end of the stroll, while the various other pot had a split in it and also got here just half complete. This went on for a complete 2 years and also the excellent pot was honored of its achievements, however the bad split pot was embarrassed of its blemishes and also of the truth that it was just able to achieve fifty percent of just what it had actually been made to do. The split pot mobilized up sufficient nerve to have its very own discussion with the water holder. Each of us has our very own distinct problems as well as in our very own method we are all split pots.
