Wise words from the brilliant David Hieatt
“If you want change to happen, you will have to inspire people. A fire needs wood to burn. It also needs a flame to start it. You need to be the flame.
A business needs to do the numbers but it also needs a purpose to give it its passion. If we listened to just our intellect, no one would fall in love. If we did not listen to our soul, no poetry would ever be written. To stir someone, you have find emotional ways to touch them. But first you have open up and let go of the worry about talking in more emotional terms. Only then will you start to connect with people. You have to stir yourself to stir others. Then you have to find the flame that inspires them.
And be positive. Be the hope. The cynic changes little or nothing. But the optimist can and will. So spread wonder. Spread optimism. It’s contagious.”
