Lessons From Oz
On a really bad day in Kansas, little Dorothy and her dog Toto had a rough time with a tornado. As the story goes, Dorothy meets up with three questionable characters: a Scarecrow, a Tin Man, and a Cowardly Lion. The Scarecrow felt that he did not have a brain. The Tin Man believed that he was missing a heart. And the Lion thought that he lacked courage. All three of these characters wanted the one thing that they believed was missing in their lives. Through a series of events, the trio discovered that they already possessed what they individually coveted. Their self-discovery happened when they decided to help Dorothy, to forge ahead regardless of the obstacles.
We do not have to get sucked up and taken to some mystical place to know that we have a brain to think, a heart to care, and the courage to carry out our life plans. These are things that we have - now. Wise use of these three is what conquers all obstacles. It's the stuff of myth and legend.
