Ghosts and ancestors
Will you be a ghost or an ancestor?
"We are ghosts, or we are ancestors in our children's lives. We either lay our mistakes, our burdens upon them, and we haunt them, or we assist them in laying those old burdens down, and we free them from the chain of our own flawed behavior. And as ancestors, we walk alongside them and assist them in finding their own way and some transcendence."
- Bruce Springsteen (live on Broadway)
Leaders often tell me, "I'm too old and set in my ways to change.”
I've come to believe that making peace with our flaws and burdens is perhaps less about us and more about what we pass on (or don't) to the next generation.
Be an ancestor.
