Whether you are a pauper, a President or the people in between, we all have irritants in our lives. Those irritations may be circumstances, difficulties with a person(s), or some pain. It can be almost anything that bothers us.
My friend and Industry colleague, Dennis Hill, reminded me a couple of weeks ago how oysters form a pearl around a speck of dust or dirt. The oyster’s body ‘coats’ the dirt-speck with a chemical as a protectant against the irritation that the dirt causes the oyster. This process of protection against irritation over time is what yields the pearl.
What or who irritates you?
What keeps you up at night?
How can you take a negative piece of dirt and turn it into a magnificent pearl? ##
