A Choice of Human-Being or Human-Doing

You are a human being, not a human doing.  Marianne Williamson wrote: “The highest level of creativity consists in being, not doing. When the being is intense enough, when the words are spoken enough, when the thoughts are thought enough, the doing will automatically follow.”  Great leaders recognize these words as leading from the inside out. The doing is the outer expression of their leadership. It is who the great leader is which drives what they do.

Inner leadership is the real, authentic and genuine core – the principles, values and extraordinary standards – by which great leaders have chosen to define themselves. It is this leading from the heart through which great results are achieved.  It is this inner realization and living of one’s purpose and values which sets an internal fire ablaze… a being burning brightly. To remind ourselves of the power of leading from within, remember always the wise counsel of an unknown author: “If an egg is broken by an outside force, life ends. If an egg is broken by an inside force, then life begins. Great things happen from the inside out.” Choose to be an extraordinary human being, and all your great human doings will follow naturally.

Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!

    Leaders who lead from the heart achieve great results because they produce people who follow from the heart rather than merely out of a sense of obligation or duty.
