Where It Comes From
I think my passion for personal growth comes from three places. One is my insecurity. As a kid, I felt "less than." And it drove me to push harder and work harder.... In order not to feel "less than." It was a formula my dad gave me. It didn't work on the insecurity, but it did make me a success. I was just a more successful insecure guy. The motivator, however for giving first came from my religious upbringing and my parents generous Judeo-Christian values they instilled in me. They were always a generous family to each other and externally. Big hearts. Finally, however, my practice of meditation and exploration of eastern spiritual practices has brought me more peace and a real desire to bring a contribution to the world, which I am happy to say has brought me even more success than my old strategy of struggling!
