So what is tuning in and why is it so important when you are looking at Emotional Intelligence? Tuning In, is living conscious. Through out the day we experience so many states of consciousness, think about it? Auto pilot much? Brushing our teeth, driving to work, listening to music in the car on the way, getting dressed in our usual business attire - no real conscious thought here? Even wondered why when we take the same route constantly, same driving route, same walking route to work, to home, it's almost robotic right? I challenge you to wake up at each of these intervals. Really notice what's going on. Feel what's happening on inside you as you do this common daily tasks and live.
Recognise the soothing of the water running down your body in the shower, as Picasso says "washing the dust away" (real meaning of art, but think of the art as water in this instance) and consciously be present. How does that feel? Do you recognise when you go into auto pilot mode and what this might mean to any of your business transactions in the day? Think about it? Imagine, what one small change in that direction might mean? Will it have a ripple effect and open your eyes to many of the greatest joys of life and also to some of life's unfair disparities?
We are worthwhile don't you think? Not merely in a monetary sense, but in a human sense, our very own connection to us is just waiting? I would be interested in hearing more. Travel well.
Knowing when to take an opportunity and develop it, is sometimes as important as recognising it's fragility when it arises.
How many important business opportunities have you passed by due to fear, or even not recognising the opportunity when it approaches?
Recently, I was contacted to deliver training to a group of 25 health care professionals last minute due to family illness. Due to tight scheduling, often I have to let these go, however, on this occassion, the window offered great timing. I took it with gusto and have not looked back.
So what I would like to say to all of you who feel fear when an offer approaches, think about it, reflect on it, breath into it and give yourself a moment to truly evaluate it's potential.
Using your intuitive and natural ability to tune in to your very own and unique emotional intelligence is what it's all about.
