Wholehearted living comes with great cost that only a few choose to endure. But for those who are willing, there are also many benefits. A wholehearted man enjoys greater confidence, ease, and impact throughout his life and relationships.
Once we’ve done our inner work – knowing who we are and what we have to offer – we can show up with greater confidence.
Wholehearted living frees us from many doubts and insecurities. We no longer have to hide parts of who we are in fear and shame.
For instance, we can confidently do the work that matters when we’re no longer trying to appease the expectations of others.
Living life with greater ease is another benefit. A whole heart is less vulnerable to the stresses and anxieties of life.
It’s not that life becomes a cakewalk. But we learn to do what needs to be done without much worrying.
Even in our relationships – we can rest in a basic goodness that is not dependent on our ability to arrange or make things happen. With a whole heart, we are free to give and receive without fear.
A whole heart increases our impact for good. We can give generously from the best of who we are.
Life is not just about us. And wholehearted living benefits those around us as well – bringing more life and goodness into the world.
With a whole heart, we build a life-giving legacy for our generation and for the ones to come.
Not many are willing to pay the cost of wholehearted living. But a cost is paid either way.
When we don’t do what it takes – we rob ourselves of the confidence, ease, and impact available.
The work to become a wholehearted man is hard. But the benefits are worth it.
