Are You Educated Or Still Teachable?
Hey it’s Robert again and I want to share a story with you today, about
an educated guy, who once went to a Zen teacher, to inquire about Zen. And as the Zen teacher explained, the educated
guy would frequently interrupt him, with remarks like, “Oh, yes, we have that too….” and
comments like that. And finally, after some time of this, the
Zen teacher stopped talking, and began to serve tea to this educated guy. He poured the cup full, and then kept pouring,
and kept pouring, until the cup overflowed. “Enough!” the educated guy once more interrupted. “Can’t you see, no more tea can go into
the cup!” “Indeed, I see,” answered the Zen teacher. “If you don’t first empty the cup, how can
you taste my cup of tea?” Many people think they are teachable, but
only in practice, they shall show their true teachability index. So, if you are truly serious about your success… Be teachable. Empty your cup… and find a Coach and a Mentor,
that has that which you wish to have, be or do. Learn like you know nothing already, and find
a model that already works, as many wise people… have done before. Ciao for now.
