Catalyzing new ways of thinking in others is a lot like moving….really big, heavy furniture.
It is nearly impossible to move multiple, sizeable pieces of furniture simultaneously, at least by hand.
And it is also difficult for anyone who wants to change things to move furniture in the lives of others while still carrying around their own misgivings, deficits and moral incongruencies.
How can we even begin to portend truth or a deep heart work when we are still backlogged in our own unforgiveness, mistruths, self deceit or hatred?
You can only limp along for so long before your inner mess begins to seep.
If you’re on the ambition wagon and don’t know how to slow down long enough to deal with your own personal journey, then perhaps it’s time to take a sabbatical?
Because the people for whom you are privileged to “move”, deserve the best “you” and the best you is the one who cares for their personal life seriously and continually.
