Detaching from the ego is one of life's most precious gifts. When detached, a person's perception about life changes. One realizes that he or she is simultaneously a student and teacher. There are lessons in every situation and there is a balancing act between teaching others and learning from others.
For example, as a trainer and health coach, technically I am a "teacher," but the reality is that my clients teach me lessons everyday. Their stories, struggles and successes teach me how to be a better person and trainer but also ignites awareness on how not to live my life. Even if the lesson is "negative" or heart-breaking, there is always something to learn or to teach others.
