Even highly successful human beings sense that they have realized only a fraction of their true potential. High levels of external success frequently come at great personal expense. Know it or not, we are all playing for keeps. Yet, there is something seductive about staying with the familiar. When we confuse our identity with our habits we fortify them and it becomes more difficult to bring our deepest, noblest, and most honorable heart into material existence. We only find our real power when we know ourselves as we truly are. The price of shying away from what can start as a flicker is that we never come to know our interior universe. Our life and career becomes a shadow calling, a way of avoiding our greater purpose; engaging our creative genius in profound and life altering ways.
