I’ve learned something walking alongside people with passionate dreams. The heart can take charge of the mind.

It sounds a bit contradictory to what we tend to believe about brain controlling body, but it’s true.

In Olympic years like this one, we learn about and admire athletes with remarkable drive and focus as they realize their dreams on a world stage.

What do people say about them?

They have heart. They followed their passion. They truly love their sport.

Are you missing opportunities to follow your heart? Or are you embracing those chances to feel excited, energetic, passionate, committed?

What are you doing that makes you just plain happy?

Let me know how you’ve followed your heart, and it doesn’t have to involve four years of daily training!

Have a day filled with heart!
