The last two times I have spoken in public
I told the gut and heart-wrenching story about
how my face became disfigued.
I told about my scars.
It was painful to do so. I didn’t like telling this
story. It hurt to do so. But I felt compelled to
speak about something that I had only written
about before. And speaking about it changed ME
and … to my surprise, others.
During breaktime of my 3-hour presentation
last Thursday night, a number of people
approached me with tears in their eyes,
telling me how DEEPLY they were moved
by what I said. One man turned his head to
the side to show me the scars he lives with.
I could sense a deep sadness as he told me
this. I immediately painted a new face for
him to focus on with my hand – a face outside
his face – a face that transcends the pain and
agony he has lived with.
He began to brighten and awaken before my
eyes. I told him what I have come to know –
all scars can be turned into stars – if we’ll let
go and look for the advantage.
As a young wrestler, whenever I lost or felt
the sting of defeat, my father took me aside
and said, “You have a knack for turning a
disadvantage into an advantage. Let’s see
what you do with this one.”
This always changed my mindset. I didn’t know
I had this knack – and the truth is I probably
didn’t to a great extent – but when my father
planted this seed – he helped MAKE IT
In any area of your life where you feel pain,
anguish – in any area where you feel all is
lost and the suffering is too great – I can
assure you, as my father did, you have a
knack for turning things around to your
advantage. All you need to do is LOOK for
a way and it will show its face.
