The Statue Inside of You

11 01 2010


From “Life Beyond Code” by Rajesh Setty – enjoy.  And HAPPY NEW YEAR!



Michelangelo said it right – “Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.”

And how does the sculptor discover it?

Simply by removing all the unwanted stone surrounding the statue.

Is this easy? No.

Is this painless for the stone? No.

Is this foolproof? No.

But if you want to discover the statute inside the stone, it’s got to be done. No other option.

If, on the other hand, you want to be nice to the stone and decide that you will simply use a good cloth and start polishing it, what will you get?

Polished crap.

Not a statue but polished crap.

It is the same case with you. There is a beautiful statue inside of you. You just need to remove the unwanted stuff that is preventing that statue to come out. The unwanted stuff can be as simple as “unproductive habits” that is stopping you from getting to where you want to go.

For starters, the “feedback” from the market and the people who care for you is what will remove the unwanted stuff. But, only if you take it seriously and do something about that feedback. If you are defensive and not listen to the feedback, you may never discover that beautiful statue.
