I hosted a Core and Love Of Learning day for some of the local people interested in leadership education in my area. It was interesting. I had a huge epiphany into Core Phase while listening to people talk and ask and answer questions.
Here are some of the notes I took while in attendance listening to one of the attendees talk about her epiphany:
“Authenticity is the heart of Core. Masquerading around as someone we are not or were never meant to be is Anti Core, or bad core. When we are comfortable being who we are at the most basic levels of self, then we are able to say we have a good core.”
The lessons of core according to Dr. and Rachel Demille are good/bad, right/wrong, true/false, work, play and relationships. So we need to be true to our self, good to our self, right with our self, at our deepest level of self. This to me is the epitome of a good core, a good core phase. Then we can say our core is whole. But dang it all if it isn’t one of the hardest things I have ever had to do.
