“Your presence and unique style makes an enormous difference in the
world. Raise your gifts for all to see, as an inspiration to others to
be all they can be. Your authentic life inspires others to soar.”
Take a look at this short clip. Do you see the gifts of greatness in each of these two teens? Do you feel the teacher might have been inspired in pairing these two together? Did the teacher see their gifts and how they complimented each other? AND how they might give back to each other even more greatness and build even more inner wealth in each other?
What gifts can you share today?
“Each life is like a letter of the alphabet. Alone it can be meaningless; or it can be a part of a great(er) meaning.” – Unknown
Something I have noticed over the years is that there is an increase in caring, concern and love between those who are directly influenced by the application of Nurtured Heart Approach™. You can’t help but have that happen because your heart is more in tune with what is going on and you see more through your heart – feel more – are more.
“Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you will help them become what they are capable of becoming.” Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
The greatness that is in all of us is just begging to be released. This is R.A.K week. Random Acts of Kindness week. What better way to share and treat others in the ways we know their GREATNESS is to be valued and treasured. When we treat someone to a random act of kindness, are we not helping them to see their inner wealth? Are we not showing them who they really are? In that one instance, I want what I do to say with quiet fearlessness — “See your worth, and step into your Greatness. YOU ARE!“
There’s a side benefit to all of this that someone may have forgotten to tell you: You are not only helping them fill their bucket of greatness, but you’re filling your own at the same time. It’s a win-win situation for all. Feel good today and every-day! Get a natural high!
“We can complain because rose bushes have thorns… or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses….” — Abraham Lincoln
The Nurtured Heart Approach™ teaches us to look at what is going right – more than what is just on the surface in the moment. How implicitly simple this is. Yet, how challenging it can be at times. These are the moments when the “inner coach” needs to jump off the bench and shout “see the roses!”
There’s always something going right – however, maybe in the past, we’ve possibly overlooked it — only seeing what was going wrong. Now, with our use of the Nurtured Heart Approach™, we learn much more readily to see those things we used to overlook, because NOW we’re seeing GREATNESS with our new eyes and new perspective — our Inner Coach, our heart, can’t help but point out the beauty, love, joy, thoughtfulness, integrity, fearlessness, etc. seen in this very moment! Join me today — See the beauty – Rejoice! Let your inner coach find it’s voice and jump off the bench today and see the GREATNESS that IS!
“If you have only one smile in you give it to the people you love.” Maya Angelou
As much as I love Maya Angelou, hope she won’t mind if I tweak this one just a bit…..
“If you have only one smile in you, reach deep in your heart and share it with the world today.” You’ll get back more than you ever imagined – not only in smiles from mere strangers but there may be in one of those contacts some connection or lead that will change your life forever and for the better!
“It is easier to be kind when you focus on a person’s heart rather than their behavior.” Lee L Jampolsky
It says, “I believe in you.”

“If you have the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.” David Viscott
You are courageous. You are fearless. This is your journey of Greatness. Be patient with yourself — just as the butterfly or moth is patient when emerging from the cocoon. As the wings dry, strength is gained — and as you step forward in your own greatness and recognize your Inner Wealth, step by step, you will transform and honor the Courage that is within. BE the YOU you are meant to BE.
