10. Don’t shut your inner voice or intuition
Saying NO to the inner voice or intuition is like saying YES to a big loss! Because inner voices serve a higher purpose to you or to someone else. Don’t confuse between your inner voice and intuition, although both come from inside of you.
While intuition comes from your unconscious mind and through your senses, your inner voice comes from your conscious mind. Intuition is feeling that you get or see or hear a reminder or just know that you need to do something. These are short, to the point messages and directive like “don’t go for it”. The inner voice is thoughts that pop into your header or something inside your mind like “what if?” or “why? as you wonder about something. Mostly they are not to the point or directive.
Alan Alda said, “You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself.”
11. Practice meditation
No. You don’t have to become a monk! Meditate to strengthen your mind and brainpower. Start with 10 minutes a day and keep doing for a few weeks to notice wonderful changes inside you. A study showed that even four days of practising meditation may be enough to increase your attention span. If you have poor concentration, meditation works like wonders. You can work efficiently despite background noises because the internal chaos is dead.
