When not to listen to what you hear?


One of the biggest challenges my clients have when wanting to turn their business around, to be more focused and start to take some serious action to move them forward.

They get bogged down in all the “should’s in the world” one client described it as being trapped in the world of should’s another realised that work went much better when she followed her heart. This week a client realised that when they trusted their instinct and simply allowed their mind to acknowledge the logical argument but not necessarily to be swayed by it. That is when she was most successful. When she listened to herself she took action faster and more effectively.

Now it is easy in this fast pace world to forget to turn down the noise, but try this the next time you are stuck between a rock and a hard place.

Ask yourself what would I like to have happen?

Answer with what you would really like to have happen not what you think everyone else expects you to say. Be fascinated with the response and then ask what needs to happen for that to happen?

My mentor shared a tip with me. Write down all your core values and your vision. Then when you are making decisions check it.  If it does not sit well with your vision or values then the answer is no, it is not right for you.

What needs to happen for you to follow your heart in business?

Thank you for listening
