Last week, we asked a question to several youngsters who have graduated from the Dancing with Tigers workshop. The question was 'What according to you is the power of youth?'
We got 29 responses. Their answers are here for you to see.
Its brilliant to see these responses. The are reflective of tremendous confidence and self-belief.
As I sat down to think about my own youth, I stumbled upon something. I found another power that youth have access to...
I believe if the youth could this to their list of powers, they would be unstoppable - the power to learn from the successes and failures of the previous generations!
Here is another way to put it. Can I seek out mentors in various aspects of my life? It may be career, fitness, relationships or even contribution to society. If I can allow my mentors to question me, make me go deeper, make me accountable - I believe all my powers will multiply exponentially!
But this requires me to make one very important shift - to let go of my ego and youthful arrogance. It requires me to be willing to be wrong. It requires me to be willing to look at another point of view.
What do you think, my dear friend, what according to YOU is the power of youth?
