“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be” wrote Lao Tzu. It is in these beautiful and joyous moments of letting go that great leaders find the joy and excitement of renewal – the releasing of themselves to new ways of seeing, feeling and thinking. Their fire and passion for life and all that they do are rekindled and set ablaze. It is the movement from stagnation to growth, from status quo to possibility, from dreams to realities… the recommitment to their life’s purpose and mission.
It is the great leader’s daring belief in what can be, in something more beyond what they are now – in their own possibilities, in knowing that there is always something more to achieve. It is their relentless ceaselessness to achieve the extraordinary in everything they do, in everything they are.. in being more than they ever dreamed they could be. In our own beautiful becoming, may we remember Colin Powell’s words that powerfully and succinctly capture the prerequisites of all successful journeys: “A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.” Make all your dreams come true. Life is so very good!
Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!
