Your Inner Wisdom Helps You Find Your Way

Inner Wisdom
Listen to your inner wisdom.

Your inner wisdom is a quiet, steady presence in your life. And, especially when you’re stuck, it offers a path to get you moving again.

When you untie knots that keep you tangled you are also likely to make some surprising discoveries. Is that something that you welcome?

And are you open to listening to the inner wisdom that you bring to every moment of your life?

Learning new things about yourself opens you to a powerful and empowering journey. It entails a kind of letting go that, in turn, enables you to get back on track more quickly.

Tap your inner wisdom with some questions.

So, for starters, could getting stuck reflect hidden concerns that you hold? Maybe you’re afraid that success will push you farther than you are ready to go. Self-sabotage can be a misguided attempt at self-protection.

This is where a bit of detective work is hugely beneficial. Invest time to listen to your intuition.

  • Do you question, on any level, whether you can handle the demands of success?
  • Do you truly want to assume more responsibility?

It’s important to explore these questions now, and to answer them honestly and effectively. Ambivalence slows you down. It will also sabotage your best efforts. This, in turn, undermines self-trust as well as others’ trust in you.

What about your goals?

Getting stuck may be a signal that you have overburdened your project with inflated ambitions. And in no-win situations, you’re tempted to balk.  In a situation like this, it’s very helpful to look for the problem areas.

  • Symbolic victories? Not needed.
  • Trying to make up for past missteps? Let them be.
  • Competing with anyone? Set yourself free.

Once your goals are reasonable you’ll start making progress again.

Choose based on your inner wisdom.

What if you feel like success raises the bar way too high? You need to know you can choose to work within your comfort zone as you assume more responsibility.

If you find yourself wrestling with this knot, a key is to develop assertive strengths to negotiate the terms of your success.

Once you know you can exercise positive control over the outcome, you can wholeheartedly and joyfully work to complete your project.

You can always pause.

Finally, when you feel like there is nowhere to turn, sometimes one step back creates two steps forward.  When you’re seriously stuck, backing up may help you reach your destination faster.

Take a quick but restorative break to get some needed distance from your project. Then examine whether you would benefit by incorporating new information, by requesting the opinion of a trusted colleague with a fresh perspective, or by going more deeply inside to hear what your own inner wisdom has to say. 

When you factor in time to periodically reassess and correct your course, you also enhance your flexibility, humility, self-knowledge, and self-esteem.

So, how will you make time to tap this potential today? When you listen to your inner wisdom and live from your unique place of truth, nothing can hold you back.
