”I remember that he took me aside into his little office in our house and said this to me. I think he meant it in the sense that you gain a certain power and strength and that ultimately you defuse the situation when you apologise first.
"It stuck with me all these years and it means a lot to me now thinking about it, because my dad did pass away a few years ago. I find it especially funny in some ways because my dad was definitely not the type to say sorry.
”In fact I don’t think he ever apologised in his life, or at least not that I’m aware of. But clearly he was still a very wise man, regardless of the fact that he was a very proud man.” Taken in Dubai, United Arab Emirates on the SOTM World Tour.
