I have been watching an amazingly good new American TV show called the UNITED STATES of TARA about a woman with multiple personality disorder. I love the name of the show.
It reminds me of many things – like STATES = NLP and POSITIVE MENTAL states (and one of the many ways in which us coaches can help our clients).
Also made me think about the name UNITED STATES of AMERICA. A different kind of multiple personality disorder, perhaps? A nation where there is a such a variety of people with differences in culture, viewpoint and education, and where the nation’s greatness comes from this rich variety, yet where differences are not always respected or valued.
At this time in history where we need to be more innovative than ever before, let us be appreciative of our differences. After all, we know that difference can lead to greater creativity and innovation and performance. So how about we all do our small part in suspending judgment and keeping an open mind to difference? Let’s each be part of the solution by being tolerant of all the strange personalities we encounter and accepting of the many different ways of being and doing and thinking.
Watch the show to learn some great examples of what can happen when strange ways in one person are given the love and support of others. Just a little thought for the day from this blogger ….
