“Lying inside you, untapped, is an inspirational force.
Guided by passion and steered by your influence, you can build momentum for yourself, others or a greater cause.
Hearts are full, and ideas are many.
You might want to start a business. Land a ‘change everything’ job. Get respect. Break the glass ceiling. Shatter your own ceiling. Own the room. Motivate a team to greatness. Change your entire career. Leave a legacy. Or fight for an issue you lose sleep over.
You can do it, no question. But it takes more than heart. It requires the game changing power of leadership presence.
And most people have no idea how to get it. ”
