LEADERSHIP FROM THE HEART

LEADERSHIP FROM THE HEART

People come to Coaching for many reasons. Either there is something they really really want and do not know how to get there. Often they come because where they are at in life not what they want – they know there is something more.

The first conversation we have is nearly always one to generate clarity about both where my client is at and what they want.

It brings a huge question – what is it that you really want? How do you know?

REVEALING YOUR DREAMS

There is a process of discovery as layers are pulled off of your desires, the cobwebs and dust of ages is blown away and the clarity and depth of your dreams is revealed.

This is a scary process. They are your dreams goddamn it! Having them would be breathtaking, stupendous, unimaginably wonderful!  And the fear that these will just remain dreams is not far away; just waiting in the wings to hijack the conversation and keep you small.

I know this from personal experience (lots and lots…)

FEAR IS ALL THAT KEEPS YOU SMALL

If that fear (False Evidence Appearing Real) were not there, you would have these things by now. Fear is also a core part of our biology. Your fear has also kept you alive and created the life you have right now. The other side of that fear is – a) where your dreams live, and b) completely unknown.

Part of you knows that place though. Your heart knows.

“The mind creates the abyss, the heart crosses it.” ― Sri Nisargadatta

So – relying on the rational mind in this domain – your fears and conditioned responses, the ‘figuring it out’ just perpetuates the maze that keeps you from what you really want. Your God-given ‘Heart’s desire’ exists outside of this, outside of what you know, in this unknown world of possibility.

WHO ARE YOU OUTSIDE OF WHAT YOU KNOW?

I have recently been reflecting on who my ideal clients are – those I really want to work with and make a difference for. And it comes down to this – those who know there is more and are willing to (with support!) jump off the edge of what they know and follow their heart. Those willing to step into a life created by their passion – to live into the greatest vision of who they are in this world.

THIS IS LEADERSHIP FROM THE HEART!

I literally cannot describe how good it feels to practice living from this place. It is a practice, not a perfection. It is a choice moment to moment to listen to the heart and keep following it, whatever comes up. It is a complete shift in identity, and in Life.

ARE YOU READY TO EXPERIENCE HOW BIG LIFE CAN BE?

YOUR HEART IS WAITING FOR YOU…
