Paying for Attention
“The drama of our emotional reactions bring us the attention from others that we don't yet have the capacity to give ourselves."
- James K. McPartland
There is a clear distinction between working from the outside-in and working from the inside-out. Our efforts to control events, people, and things is at best a mode of survival. It is where we most often find ourselves giving away our power. It is an illusion. The outside world will magically change to the degree we cultivate our inside world. And, truth be told, the outside world is not required to do anything yet you will see it change.
Perhaps the most challenging distance to travel is the journey from the head to the heart. Gaining clarity on who we are, including identifying the unique gifts we have been given, sets us on a path to authenticity, integrity, and purpose. It is a critical requirement of executing upon our life assignment. Simply put - it's an inside job.
