path to gaining personal power, inner peace, and healthy self-esteem.
The greatest lesson I have ever learned was a gift from my youngest son, Phillip. It was a few days after the accidental death of David, my oldest son. In our pain, my only surviving child, Phillip and I were attempting to process through
the unspeakable thing which had happened. In our grief we talked about the boys childhood. My heart was heavy as we spoke about the difficult times David had gone though when his dad and I divorced. The boys were young at the time.
Abruptly, Phillip said to me, “Mother, when you and Dad got a
divorce, I made up my mind that this is my life, and I’m not going to let your and Dad’s problems spoil it.” I was astonished by his wisdom. You see, he was only ten when he made that decision and
now he is thirty. Suddenly, I felt lighter. I was amazed he had accepted responsibility for his own life.
Some people, like Phillip, are born with a sense of self-responsibility. Others have excellent role models who teach them
responsibility, like the father of Tiger Woods. In an interview, Mr.
Woods said that when Tiger was 7 or 8 years old he asked, “Hey
Dad, where are my golf clubs?” His dad responded, “Tiger, whose golf clubs are they? If you want to play golf, you are responsible
for knowing where they are and putting them in the car when we are ready to play golf.” Mr. Woods was good at teaching his son
responsibility. Much later in Tiger’s life, he tells of the time Tiger
blamed a distraction for a poor shot. Mr. Woods said, “Tiger,
distractions are part of the game. You have to learn to play though
them.” While golfers blame a sudden cough or a puff of wind for a bad game, many others blame external circumstances on how they play the game of life.
