“A smile from the heart speaks a universal language.” #bgdtcoaching.
Choosing to write a post entitled ‘From the heart‘ might seem strange. If you are a regular reader here – I appreciate you from the heart – you’ll be aware that the heart is at the centre (no pun intended) of all these posts.
That said, spending a few words here today specifically about the issues of undertaking anything from the heart allows me to share three considerations.
Firstly, we always have the option to either embrace thoughts and sensations coming from the heart or decide to ignore them. Within the choice lies the roots of our days. Opting to follow our heart gives structure to our life by allowing heartfelt values to guide actions.
Secondly, it is no secret our most fulfilling performances are obtained when we are closely aligned with the undertaking itself. Things from the heart have a higher probability of capturing our attention and consequently stimulating us to perform at our best, live our potential so to speak.
Although there will be some, possibly many, occasions in which we are obliged to undertake activities not from the heart – and hopefully we engage also in these things to the best of our ability – that something extra will most likely be missing.
And finally, a smile from the heart speaks a universal language, one of love.
Thanks, from the heart, for choosing to read this today.
