We all have dark places in us. Each of those has a reflection that’s light. Because it’s part of our nature, it doesn’t take effort to create it, only to direct it.
Arrogance is a distasteful characteristic. Flip it, and you have confidence. When you’re convinced your course is right, you’re not quickly shaken by others’ opinions or their lack of confidence.
The strong-willed can be manipulative. The unselfish flip side is the ability to lead others for their own good. Unselfish leadership matters.
Our first reaction, gut level, instinctive, is to hide or quash our dark sides.
How can that dark place become a strength?
