All things bright and beautiful…
In case you think this an invitation to start singing or heading down the kum bay yah path, worry not. I do however invite you to reflect on the last time you entered you place of work full of the joy of ‘Life’.
Life is certainly a tough experience for most of us, admittedly to varying degrees, and yet within any 24 hour period there are countless heart opening moments to be had. A beautiful sunrise, an amazing tree, a child giggling their socks off, a bird in a nest with their babies…the list is endless. Our challenge is always to remember to look, and see, and connect through our heart.
Accessing the full spectrum of the human experience includes opening to our heart which is life giving in a deep and joyful way. It opens us to the power within us which is warming and magnetic. It connects us to a resource which is both uplifting and transformational – for us and others.
As great leaders we seek to inspire and uplift…to connect others with their own power and potential. This is a heart-based impulse and to be truly powerful we need to take care of our own heart connection each and every day. So whilst you may not feel inclined to sing ‘all things bright and beautiful’ why not choose to look daily for those moments which have the power to open our heart and consciously bring the qualities of those moments into your leadership and daily life no matter how challenging it is.
Life is a beautifully rich and uplifting experience…let’s constantly remind ourselves of that as we seek to bring transformation to our world.
