If you really knew me....

In the Challenge Day training, as well as during Challenge Day itself, there is an exercise called "If you really knew me..." The exercise is designed to help people drop their facade and "get below the water line," a phrase that represents getting below the water that hides below the top 10% of the iceberg that represents our feelings and emotions.

This exercise can be a powerful one for both the ones that were sharing as well as those who are being shared with. For many there are tears, since they are opening their hearts which can be raw with emotion. This workshop goes even deeper since we are there for three days, a trust building today, an opportunity to share and deal with anger, and whatever tomorrow brings.

If you really knew me, you would know that I have been living from a place of fear, a place where I lack control. If you really knew me, you would know that I have struggled with my feelings of being adequate enough. If you really knew me, you would know that I love my students, even the one that annoy me! :) If you really knew me, you would know that I am proud of the work I am doing this weekend, but wish that all students would have the opportunity to be affirmed and complimented, like I have have had the opportunity to do so far.

I encourage you to try this with your children. The sooner we can break the emotional control like
the ego, the sooner we can get real, like Tuesday...quiz if you really knew me...
