The Self Leader Secret
Following a Beat That is Close to our Heart
Following a beat that is close to our heart
Yesterday afternoon I listened in on member services calls to individuals who had called into our “800” number. This is a valuable department in our society because one can speak directly to a fellow colleague. I am grateful to have experienced this process in the training program to better prepare myself to assist others.
It reminded me of when I was playing in the symphony. The musical score was laid out there in front of me and I could play the notes. In order to hear the piece as intended; we needed a conductor to coordinate the rhythm. Every director interrupts the timing differently. What is important is that we are all on the same page playing together even though we have a different note.
On one particular call the person on the other end of the line was full of vibrancy and spirit flowing from their voice. It was quite evident that they too felt the “chord” running through our veins of the excitement of life yet to be experienced. Tears of joy flooded my soul in anticipation in every word they spoke.
I saw from this day that from deep down inside many like myself are feeling this “song”; one of true happiness, one of great appreciation and most of all following a beat that is close to our heart.
