He died a man. He created a vision. He led an incredible life.

He oozed charisma. He was unafraid. He faced fear. He created hope.

His mind mastery changed other minds. When impossibility stared him in the face, he looked for possibilities.

One mind can change the world. Often poverty and hope create a beautiful mind.

He knew what hate was. He knew what injustice was. He knew what pain was.He knew what torture was. He knew the real value of learning.

How could his way of thinking have affected so many people worldwide? He had a vision. He never gave up. Against all the odds, he made an impact.

The past few weeks some of my clients have been dealing with issues of anger. I found this quote very helpful in bringing awareness to their needs. It’s quite a remarkable few words that hit the spot:

“As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I’d still be in prison.” (Nelson Mandela)

Mandela knew that if he didn’t leave all the bitterness and anger behind him as he left prison, he would never be free. Freedom from frustration and anger is the path to peace. Sometimes you just have to let it go.
