If you live in a castle on a hill with big gates, a high-tech security system and a collection of well-meaning friends at your disposal, it is most likely that your personal safety seldom feels threatened.
I don’t live in a castle on a hill, but one day I would like too.
Many corporate leaders, ground breaking entrepreneurs, successful athletes, famous artists and high ranking government officials have achieved well in life; their reward is their well earned luxury, it’s their guaranteed security, and their castle on a hill.
To the leaders who own castles, I write this post without cynicism or judgment, actually — I admire you greatly but I do have one question for you…
Could the cast iron gates that were originally purchased for your safe keeping, potentially act as a prison cell around you?
When you try and keep others out, do you find yourself locked in?
If you want to truly live a significant life, you may have to pull down the cast iron gates and think about opening your heart.
