He looked at me for a long moment. “Please don’t take this the wrong way. I really respect you, John. I always have. However, just like this cup, you seem to be full of your own ideas. And how can any more go in … until you first empty your cup?” – The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari (Robin Sharma)

I add these few lines from a book that I read many years ago as a reflection this week. As individuals and groups we are constantly interacting with self, others and the world around us. How can showing up in these interactions with a cup that isn’t already full provide us with opportunities as we explore the possibilities, discover potential and act authentically?
