On man exclaimed, “What the hell is that supposed to mean? The harder I think, the more I will accomplish!” Not true! Thinking harder only gets you a headache. Feeling harder actually gets you closer toward your goal. Your inspiration and wisdom comes from your connection to your inner brilliance and emotional intelligence.
Using your heart helps you thrive!
When you’re piecing together a puzzle, figuring out (using your brain) helps. For just about everything else in life, feeling it out (using your feeling sense, gut feeling, intuition) provides you with the wisest answers and solutions. The human brain, your capacity for cognitive reasoning, along with your physical senses – sight, sound, hearing, touch, smell - has limitations.
How many times have you heard someone exclaim that their brilliant idea – a book, movie, structure, concept, etc. – suddenly came to them. That’s because most discoveries and ideas don’t come from just figuring it out, they come from feeling it out first using your intuition, wisdom, and emotional intelligence. A great example is Albert Einstein, one of the most prolific inventors in history. His writings will tell you that his ideas and inventions originated in his imagination. He exclaims, "Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution."
Emotional intelligence, your capacity for wisdom and knowing, along with your 6th sense – intuition – is unlimited. Your imagination is an extension of your intuitive and emotional capacities. Everything that was created by human beings began in someone’s imagination. That ability couple with your brain’s capacity to build it in the physical world is what evolution is all about. Relying on your inner wisdom first and your cognition second is the recipe for success!
