Finding your mojo can be like trying to find a missing sock. You know the sock has to be somewhere, and it's a mystery how it ever got lost in the first place. It has to be somewhere in reach but the more we strive to find it the harder it seems to pin it down. So we end up going through the motions just to get things done, or doing the things we think we should do to make up for feeling so lost.
There's no greater way to slash your mojo or charisma than to ignore your gut! And I am not going on a rant about your actual intestines (this time), I am talking about your instincts...your second brain in your gut.
When was the last time you stopped and asked yourself what you need? I'm guessing you don't because you're afraid of the answer. Maybe the answer is that what you really need is a nap, dessert, or a lengthy chat with your best friend, or a quiet walk outside. And to do that you would have to give up your responsibilities, maybe ask for help, or go a little astray from your "duty to be working hard and in control". It might be true that what you really need is a little time to "go astray". But what is always true is that when you take the time to listen to your gut, you will end up more on track in the long run.
What if your gut says- "Go for a jog, reconnect with a friend who really needs you?" What's the sacrifice? All of life is a balance between what we need to get done and what really love to do. The trick is to to make more of what we need to do more of what we love to do!
"Just as your car runs more smoothly and requires less energy to go faster and farther when the wheels are in perfect alignment, you perform better when your thoughts, feelings, emotions, goals, and values are in balance." -Brian Tracy
So, take a moment now. What do you need?
How can you start making small decisions to align your "have to's" with your "want to's"? For instance, you may not want to cook a homemade dinner every night so you can enjoy family time, but perhaps as you align your value of quality family time, you can find a way to make breakfast your bigger bonding time because the prep is way less work. Having that special time in the morning may take a little pressure off the evening meal, and help you have more "want" around whats really important, eating food together so you can bond as a family.
Carve out a little time this weekend to explore the things that are out of balance in your life. Maybe a little yoga is in order, quiet time in the morning, a daily jog, more quality time with your favorite people, or something as simple as drinking less alcohol and more water.Your body and heart with thank you! Oh, and here is a great method to try to open your heart to inner wisdom...
