All the Best Leaders Practice Emptiness

Emptiness becomes our wellspring. Attachment and accumulation our opposition.

They are avoiding the death of what they know, the comfort of that knowing, and the discomfort of the unknown.

  • Any place you find yourself, go to the other place as a matter of practice.
  • Stop doing what you’ve always done and instead bravely do something different ten times until you’ve shifted and learned a new habit.
  • Get out of the mindset you are in that keeps you stuck in this place.
  • Attend to the feelings of fear, frustration, and control by being overwhelmingly curious and reflective inward.
  • Brave the sacrifice of this moment of change to empty and start anew.
  • Have a chat with your reptilian brain and tell it you are unwilling to live in a loop of fear and superficial gratification, topped with a false sense of control.
  • Explore and become proficient in the interactivity of a change of expectations knowing that the interactivity is what builds resilience and adaptivity.
  • Break a boundary, be messy, allow yourself to be seen in a way you’d normally protect.

What you know to be true today will not be true tomorrow.
