The Unnoticed Chains

Rosa Luxemburg, early 20th century social activist, wrote: “He who does not move does not notice his chains.” Her message to great leaders is the caution to be aware of their self-awareness.  The chains happen in life.  Too much work, not enough time to do things… our simple humanity.  Success and achievements can also lull them, their organizations  and personal and family life into a belief that good is good enough, the sense that they have already pushed the limits and there is nothing left to explore. This is the beginning of demise if it is that choice which is chosen.  Great leaders, however, choose to ask themselves, their organizations and those whom they serve: what are the chains that hold us back from achieving our purpose, mission and meaning

Each morning when you look into the mirror, you will see a magnificent image, one filled with infinite possibilities of greatness. As you look, think of David Icke’s words:

“Do you see the real you, or what you have been conditioned to believe is you? The two are so, so different. One is an infinite consciousness capable of being and creating whatever it chooses, the other is an illusion imprisoned by its own perceived and programmed limitations.”

Ernest Holmes tells us: “Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it.” Let your reflection be a brilliant flame that will light the world around you – in your great achievements, giving unconditionally to those your serve and inspiring others to see and achieve their own individual greatness.  Break those chains!  Be more than you ever dreamed you could be … and more … so much more. There is so much more in you to be discovered, so much more to be lived. Enjoy your magnificent journey to its fullest.

There is a final learning for great leaders to realize – that they, too, must learn to see the chains that others have that they do not see and help them release themselves from them.  It is all about people, all about serving.

Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!

    As you point out, “success and achievement” often are the chains that bind us most tightly. Too often, rather than energizing further innovation; they inhibit change and foster repetition. Thanks Mike.
