I recently interviewed a rodeo cowboy who told me a story from early childhood. When he was two or three years old, he wanted to go everywhere with his Dad. One time, he even held his breath until he passed out, trying to convince his Dad to take him along. His dad finally told him, “ If you want to come with me, you need to quit crapping your drawers”. All of a sudden, potty training became very important to him.
What in your life would you like to do and you haven’t yet done? Are you still figuratively “crapping your drawers” rather than making the changes required to move ahead? What can you do today to move in the direction you’re hoping for?
