Becoming The Change Podcast (Episode 462): A Powerful Combination

Welcome to the Becoming The Change Podcast. Each daily reading focuses on a different quote on how we can best apply it to our own moral compass and one of the five areas in Social Emotional Learning: Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, Relationship Skills and Responsible Decision Making. Thank you for listening and we hope you consider subscribing to the podcast for future episodes.

A Powerful Combination

“A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.”

-Nelson Mandela

Our moral compass is based on our moral values and what we believe to be right from wrong. It is the qualities that make us us. Former President of South America once said that when we have a good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination. And how right he was. The strength of these two entities together are more powerful than apart. They are things that must always be in sync with one another and of course we must take the time to hear them both out before making any decision or experience any emotion. Accuracy is crucial. This by no means is easy and is actually an art to eventually master. It takes time. It takes practice. It takes precision. The importance of both goes without saying. We are all here to contribute in a positive way and bring good into this world. I know this and it can happen if we take the time to work on ourselves and our own moral compass.

What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards defining/refining your own moral compass?
