Leading from the Heart
I believe that all human activity is based on a guiding ideal. Great moments, great achievements are always based on a set of convictions and a vision people seek to implement. When I beat cancer, 20 years ago, I kept a gaze fixed on the idea “If I, can so can others.” To this day I give talks on; ‘60% of the Cure is Mental Attitude’ and so many others are winning too.
In many ways, this is what distinguishes leaders from others. It is their ability to forge a visions placed before their eyes and have others follow them.
They must be prepared to fight for the vision and be prepared for the possibility of failure. If you do not have values or you’re not prepared to fight for them, no on will follow you.
I believe the values are basic faith, a belief in God, a love of your fellow man, the pursuit of liberty, the love of one’s family and one’s country. These things enable the future and enable our society. They give us our freedom and endow our achievements with a higher meaning.
The process of ‘change’ is never clear-cut because it requires a lot of introspective. You have to talk to yourself, your mentor and the many who support and encourage you in your efforts. At the end of the day, it has to be a decision not of the mind, but of the heart.
If I look back at all the decisions that I have made that counted for anything in my own life and in my positions as a Business Owner and Corporate Vice President, I have found that it is the heart that makes the best decisions. In addition to logic and calculation of cost and benefits, there is a computation of the heart, which I think is actually a more trustworthy guide. At a certain point, you feel that something is right and you do it. It’s that feeling that guides us to take important steps in life.
There is no guarantee of success in anything you want to accomplish. In fact, if you seek the guarantee of success, you will never succeed! If you are not willing to take risks or to fail, you cannot succeed. That is iron-clad.
The true winners are distinguished by the fact that they sometimes lose, but more importantly that they can rise up from defeat. You cannot succeed if you are not prepared to fail.
