Breaking down a walled off heart to truly lead

150922 Open Heart

Are you a leader?
And have you been hurt?

Are you now protecting yourself from future pain?
Have you walled off your heart to those who need you most?
Has your heart hardened?

Truth …

Each time you …

Lower that wall just a bit …
And show the glory that is ALL of you …
You will connect with another …
And you will make a difference in both your life and in theirs.

Will you be hurt in the future? Guaranteed.
Will it be worth it? Definitely.

I know.
I have been hurt.

And each time I have mended my heart …
And shared it (my love) with another …
It has always been worth it.
In fact, more than I ever could have imagined.

Are you ready to be courageously vulnerable?
Are you ready to be brave?
Are you ready to truly lead?


For others?

“When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
This is brave, this is proof
This is who I’m meant to be, this is me”

– This Is Me, The Greatest Showman
