    Default heart in mind

    The following in red is confusing. Please tell me some more about it.

    Identify your genius. Only you can find it. Start with the heart in mind.

    Does this refer to both your emotional side and logical side?

    Thank you.

    ...if we say to keep something 'in mind' it means that we should always consider it/think about it.
    So, this would definitely refer to your emotional side - think about your heart.
    A similar saying would be 'follow your heart'.
    So, in my view, the text
    "Identify your genius. Only you can find it. Start with the heart in mind."
    means that a person/genius is more than just a brain, your heart/spirit is equally as important.

    It is a very clumsy way of suggesting that we should consider what is in our hearts, though.
