“…they have tremendous heart…”
We use the term frequently but have we really stopped to think what “having heart” really means? From a metaphysical standpoint, heart is usually associated with the heart chakra and holds specific importance for love, compassion, and selflessness. Contrary to this though is what we think about when someone is doing something “with heart”—it takes on an almost combative connotation whereby we are competing against an opponent, doesn’t it?
In this case, though, our opponent, more often than not, is our self. We are constantly fighting and pushing ourselves to always go that extra mile and accomplish what we originally had set out to do. Once we accept what our goal and mission is, that is when love, compassion, and selflessness come through. Making this a daily discipline is the difference between success and failure but remember; even in defeat no once can take “heart” away from you.
