UNLOCK THE DOOR TO YOUR MIND & START SHOWING UP AS YOUR TRUE AUTHENTIC SELF WITH THESE THREE STEPS
Explore the possibilities
Information, knowledge and learning are your elixir as the Thinker Archetype. Researching, planning, and brainstorming gives you a natural high, they're how you make sense of the world around you. Picking up new skills and mastering them is when you're at your best, BUT they can also stop you from seeing the world in its full glory.
You tend to reject gut instinct and intuition in favor of logic and prefer a well-researched viewpoint rather than one that is simply speculating on possibilities.
To truly make the world a better place you need to put your diligent mind to good use and explore other ways of looking at things, other than through research and fact. Look at different pieces of the same puzzle. Conflicting opinions, the ones differing from your own, are giving you a one-sided view instead of allowing you to explore ideas that aren't necessarily based on logical thinking.
Keeping an open mind to ideas and perspectives that don't match your own takes practice and patience. Start by being curious and asking questions, which should come naturally to you, but don't fixate on just one viewpoint. Challenge yourself to step outside your comfort zone and push yourself to think differently.
And talk to others, ask for their opinion and be ready and open to it being different from yours. Try to find people with different backgrounds and experiences, and engage in meaningful conversations. Allow curiosity to be your friend.
Your tendency to rely on research and knowledge can prevent you from making decisions and lead to analysis paralysis. For you, it’s important to make the right decision, the one that’s been researched and is backed up by fact. It’s not uncommon for you to spend three days researching something that should really only take three hours.
So how do you move past this and get off the hamster wheel of learning for learning's sake, which leads you to overthink so many things and stops you from taking action?
By taking time to reflect. Reflection can help to break the cycle of overthinking and bring you back to your center. Taking some time to write down the pros and cons of a decision, or to meditate on the issue, can help bring clarity and focus. This is especially important for the Intellectual Archetype, as you're used to relying on your own mental power, and can easily become overwhelmed by your need for analysis.
Remember, there is never just one path in life, we're always offered options with choices to make. It, therefore, stands to reason that there are also different ways to approach things, think things through and ultimately take action on. Challenge yourself to be decisive and act first and think later. It'll go against everything you believe in but will help open your mind to other possibilities.
Move past analysis paralysis
Use knowledge as a
Your need to rationalize everything you learn is firmly lodged in your DNA. For you, everything should have a logical explanation and you take pride in forging your own path, especially when the data is on your side.
There is no doubt that knowledge is powerful for changemakers looking to leave a legacy, but not everything in life is based on logic and research. However, when used as a stepping stone to something bigger you’ll make the world a better place.
Use your knowledge and expertise to collaborate with others and embrace different perspectives. Allow contrasting experiences and opinions to be brought to the table. You’ll find by working with a diverse group of people you can expand your horizons and gain new insights you may not have otherwise considered.
Finally, it's important to recognize that success and fulfillment come in many forms. While your pursuit of knowledge is the driving force behind your achievements thus far, it's important to explore other areas of your life that bring you joy and meaning. Things such as hobbies or interests, cultivating meaningful relationships or contributing to your community in a positive way.
"I actively seek the opinions of others to broaden my viewpoint and don't rely solely on logic and research to make my decisions. I know by doing this I can then use not only my knowledge but my wisdom too, making the world a better place."
Some Inner Monologues which might sound familiar….
If I don't keep up with the latest research and ideas how can I continue to expand my knowledge and learn?
I need to explore every possible option before I can make a choice, otherwise I might make a mistake and advise someone wrongly. People rely on me to analyze things and make the right decision.
I love learning new things and spending time researching. Surely we need to constantly be learning otherwise we’re not improving.
I like facts and figures as it allows us to make logical decisions. And the data doesn't lie does it?
How can I make the world a better place if I don't know what I'm talking about? I need to spend time researching, learning and understanding so I can help others.
IT'S TIME TO RELEASE THE BAGGAGE WEIGHING ON YOUR PHYSICAL, SPIRITUAL AND EMOTIONAL HEALTH AND UNLOCK THE IMPACT YOU ARE MEANT TO HAVE ON THE WORLD.
Begin your journey of leading whole
It's a journey back to your authentic self...
It's the integration of body, mind, and soul...
It's refusing to hide parts of yourself or allow the past to dim your light...
It's a commitment to leading your life from a deep place of awareness, connection, and truth...
Because who you are - just as you are - is complete, whole, and lacking nothing.
“Seek not greatness, but seek truth and you will find both.”
- Horace Mann
Are you ready?
Are you READY to awaken a deeper sense of spiritual connection and focus on becoming the truest version of yourself?
I invite you to walk with me on this journey of Leading Whole by stepping into your Purpose & Power.
Patience - a true transformation takes time. Patience allows us to analyze things beyond their face value, helping us stay calm in a storm and focused on our goals.
Understanding - all transformation begins within. Everything we see, have, and experience in this world begins from within, and cultivating a deeper sense of understanding in the world is what will help move you forward in this journey.
Recommitment - every journey of self-discovery and growth requires not only an initial commitment but a regular practice of recommitment. By recommitting to yourself, you're reminding yourself of the deeper why behind what you do and holding yourself accountable as you make your way along the path.
Perseverance - the pathway to personal change is tough and you'll be challenged along the way. Developing perseverance despite the storms of life that may come your way, rather than throwing in the towel when things feel uncertain, unclear or downright miserable, is what will keep you moving further on your pathway to transformation. Trust that there is joy in sorrow, light in even the darkest of moments.
Observation - in life, everything is about perspective. Your perspective is your reality. But we all know our individual perspectives are limited, which is why observation is so key. Those who are observant not only of their outer surroundings and experiences, but also of everything happening internally, are able to tap into a deeper wisdom.
Surrender - give yourself permission to fall apart, put yourself back together, and fall apart again. Developing a willingness to surrender to something greater than yourself and letting God take the lead allows you to fully experience the transformational journey you're on.
Expectation - managing your expectations around how this journey "should" look and feel is an integral part of your journey. There is no right or wrong way as this journey is yours and yours alone. Letting yourself lean into that feeling of abundance instead of allowing yourself to follow in the footsteps of fear will show you the possibilities that lie ahead.
Perspective - society has conditioned us to believe our life should look a certain way. Live your life the way you decide is right for you, with the aim of becoming your truest and highest version of self. We're all seeing life through varying lenses (shaped by society, culture, our upbringing, etc.). By clearing the crud from your glasses you'll increase your quality of light, which allows you to see things through multiple perspectives and respond creatively rather than as a reaction to how you've been conditioned. Explore the parts of your life you're currently only viewing with a singular perspective.
Openness - being open is key to discovering the truth of who you are, and what you have the power to do, because it’s what helps you show up authentically in every aspect of life. Reflect on the ways in which being more open could help you foster a deeper spiritual connection to yourself, others and the world.
Willingness - leaning outside your comfort zone can feel challenging at times but don't shy away from the depth. Leaning outside your comfort zone can feel challenging at times, but don't shy away from the depth. By being willing to take that first step into something new, we unlock a whole other world of possibilities we didn't know existed. Ask yourself "how willing am I to let go and dive head first into wherever this journey may lead?"
Embodiment - are you ready to create the vision of the future you desire, the one you're working towards? Embody that energy and the reality will eventually follow. Everything starts with solidifying an identity that feels right and perfectly fits with the person you're striving to become.
Responsibility - you have complete authority over the life you want to live and while you're not in control of what life might throw at you, you are in control of how you respond. I invite you to take responsibility BY walking with me on this journey of Leading Whole and stepping into your Purpose & Power.
