"Some feel that fear is okay as a lifestyle because they’ve heard that the meek shall inherit the earth. So they can go on with being meek as a way of life. They become soft-spoken and compliant, never standing for themselves; always resigned to being a fluffy doormat. But scholars now say that in the scriptural texts that were translated from the Greek, the word praos doesn’t exactly mean “meek” as people have always thought. In fact, it is more accurate to say it means “disciplined.” A very big difference in those translations. It’s much more encouraging to now realize that the disciplined shall inherit the earth."
Wow! Author and life coach Chandler says it perfectly so perhaps I should just be quiet?
I do recommend you re-read the above text and honestly reflect on your own attitudes, habits and behaviors. Is working on more discipline your next step? It’s often discipline that is the outcome of the executive coaching work I do. The result is increased confidence and results.
What are you working on to improve your life and work? Please join the conversation!
