Open Your Minds

A spiritual master received a learned man who came to gain deeper insight into
the mysteries of life.

The master prepared tea. While serving the tea he began to explain, but the learned professor kept on interrupting with his own opinions. So the master poured his visitor's cup full, and then kept on pouring.

The learned man watched the overflow until he no longer could restrain himself, "It is overfull.
No more will go in!"

"Like this cup," the master said, "you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you anything unless you first empty your cup?"

Whether you are a coach with a history of producing All-Star runners and championship teams or new to the sport and have been asked to take over the cross country team, there is always something to learn from others. Valuable information can come from anywhere and anyone if you keep an open mind.
