"We are what we think about all day long."
Ralph Waldo Emerson.
What healthier way of creating a more fulfilling life than by learning the art of tuning into your most inspired and resourceful self, your inner voice? So many times we want to ‘quiet’ the inner voice; my aspiration is to build ‘congruence’ and ‘balance’. In a recent interview for the radio program with Dr. Chris Kukk, author of ‘The Compassionate Achiever’, I mentioned that I had given a name to my inner voice; I call him “Tommy.”
Dr. Kukk loved it!
Your inner voice can be your leader to a life of greatness. Genius, creativity, and a silent super power emerge from your heart and mind the moment you tune into your inner voice.
The secret of connecting into its messages is having a heart filled with gratitude. When your heart is opened wide with gratitude your inner voice becomes loud and clear, and your life-expanding messages enter into your mind with ease.
If your heart is filled with gratitude, it is almost impossible to stop your inner voice from speaking clearly and profoundly.
My inner voice, “Tommy”, and I are congruent and balanced when I follow this list. I call it the “Excellent Eight”
1. Eat fiber & drink water –The Microbiota and Microbiome rule
2. Move more- The ‘Lymphatic’ system is dependent on movement
3. Sleeping deeply -The ‘Glymphatic’ system, understanding why it is critical
4. Dreaming large - Seeing it is achieving it, believe it!
5. Time ownership - I own my time, it does not own me
6. Incremental change – Self-improvement, learning is the key
7. Giving freely- Share connections, be compassionate
8. Routine and the system – Cue, response, reward. Stickiness and your habits
My inner voice “Tommy” needs to be my best friend and ally. Everyone has an inner voice; the key is to have our conscious and subconscious mind dialed in. Think; congruence, balance and cooperation. Ponder these-
· Live a disciplined life
· Do fulfilling work
· Act based on your core values
· Love yourself
