And the most important changes are on the inside.
Our changes are dictated by our choices
- We have no choice but to change on the outside . . .
- We get to CHOOSE how we’ll change on the inside!
Everyone knows what a tadpole is, but few people come to fully appreciate The Tadpole Principle. Why? Because we get distracted by all the changes that happen on the outside. As a consequence, we fail to realize that the most important changes are always on the INSIDE. (Like what happens when frogs switch from getting Oxygen out of water . . . to developing lungs so they can breathe air!)
The audience is treated to some fun as they come to the collective realization: “We have no choice but to change on the outside . . . but because we’re Human… we get to CHOOSE how we’ll change on the inside!” Our most critical changes have little to do with aging . . . and everything to do with learning how to acquire the characteristics we most admire and appreciate in others.
This program was the closing presentation for Rotary International’s Mid-America President Elect Training Seminar on Saturday, March 19, 2011. The 250+ attendees gave it a resounding standing ovation.
