The conscious leader practices wholeheartedness.

He understands that this means giving fully of oneself, offering all of one’s heart, being all-embracing, and that anything less is living small to avoid risk. He knows that to get it all you have to give it all, that’s the fair deal offered by life. He sees that living this way means expansion and growth and connection to the heart of others and to the world. It takes courage.

He knows that the opposite of wholeheartedness is perfectionism, which comes from fear and causes separation and judgement, which is a self-fulfilling prophecy. This is the inward spiral, the direction of shrinkage towards the destiny of a small life.

The conscious leader faces the perfectionist in himself and drives it out into the world.
