Jordan Mercedes, PCC Executive Coach
You will never know what you truly have inside until you bring all of who you are to everything you do.
Your way of engaging and touching the world or even just being with yourself is noticeably different when you inner core is connected to your vision, mission and experience.
The Heart has a Purpose
I had a choice to make, I could feel my heart pounding but I had trouble connecting to what it was trying to tell me. I didn’t have time to figure it out, because the nearly thirty professional women were waiting to hear from me.
They had taken the weekend off to come to my retreat on avoiding burnout. By all accounts, even on the first night the retreat was a success. However, I had a problem that I didn’t know I had until it was time to say the opening words to the group.
I needed to speak from my heart, but I felt numb and a bit frozen. I had long ago accepted that speaking in public was a part of life. The numbness didn’t come from nerves. It came from the disconnect that happens when one works by engaging the head, while neglecting to access the deeper resources of the heart. The Heart is where purpose, motivation, vision and most of all fire lives.
The women on the retreat needed fire, I had words and an event schedule for the weekend. I heard a little voice give me a challenge “Jordan, if you don’t get real, you’re never going to do the work or have the impact you want to have”.
I looked around to see if the women waiting for me to speak heard it too.
That night was a turning point for me. It was the moment I decided that I needed to connect to my heart so that my experience and purpose, meaning and values could create real connection and lasting impact.
I believe people are brilliant and that even the most accomplished person can do more when their heart is ablaze with purpose.
