In my Tip 3 post, I discussed the importance of knowing your own definition of success. When you know your definition of success, you can then trust your instincts. It’s essential that you hone your intuition and then become comfortable making decisions about your life and business.
Why not set a goal to practice being present more often and then listening closely to your internal voice – in time you will begin to trust your instincts.
I learned to trust my instincts by practicing solitude. I have found that in our ‘wired’ world, if I am not careful, I can be ‘on’ all the time.
Technology has certainly made all of our lives a lot easier but it’s essential that we do not allow these time saving tools to control our entire life. I have discovered that spending time alone is one of the best gifts I can give myself.
I started by taking a walk alone in my neighborhood with my cell phone off. I also set my alarm to wake up 30 minutes earlier for some quiet time before my busy day takes over.
My favorite practice of solitude is an overnight trip alone to my favorite spa hotel at least once a year.
