So many choices… What has the highest priority NOW? Can’t think of your next move in your business and prioritize the purpose in business? Here is why… you are looking in the wrong place!
You probably already ‘know’ this. You have felt it, like a splinter in your mind. Sounds familiar?
“What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world. You don’t know what it is, but it’s there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad.” – Morpheus, The Matrix movie
Maybe, like us, you feel you are here to do great things.
We certainly believe that! Hopefully, you are already aware of this. And if not, this article will help you to develop that ‘sixth sense’ that will guide you deeper and deeper in your mission. This is the #1 key to building a lasting and fulfilling business.
This is where you will find your ultimate freedom. Not only in a material sense of health and wealth but also at a profound level inside yourself.
If this all sounds whooshy washy, we encourage you to look at the science that backs this up (listed in the links in the article).
Why Your Mission Matters
There is a Great Change happening. If you don’t feel it inside of you, just look outside in our societies. There are rapid developments happening in the fields of technology, science, education, politics, health, and spirituality. It is staggering how fast it is going. Do you see this too?
The world needs you. We need each other. This is why we gather again in communities and tribes. This is why we (Daan and Reinier) founded Tribepreneurs. We provide a platform for changemakers to strengthen and support each other.
Whatever you feel deep inside (not in your head), is going to support the Great Change of humanity. The New Leaders are the ones who will transform the course of our species from the inside out. It not very likely that our ‘world leaders’ will create this change. It will come from the collective, bottom-up.
If you feel this, you are one of those New Leaders. This is why your mission matters.
You Have Been Lied to All Your Life – Wake Up
This sounds harsh maybe, but you have been fooled. And the crazy thing about it is that those who love you did this. What is even crazier, is that they were unaware of it themselves.
Fortunately, there is a growing group of people waking up to a deeper truth – to a deeper intelligence that resides within us. What is this intelligence and why is it important for your business? Because this is the place where you make your decisions. And your decisions determine your future. This is how you prioritize the purpose in business
Most of us are driven by values that are come from friends, family and the societies we live in. But my friends and family are super nice you might think, what’s wrong here?
Ego Driven Market Values
We were told that once we achieve X, Y, and Z, we will be happy. We have been taught that achievement is the vehicle to fulfillment. A good education, an important career, a big house, family and kids, money, and mostly, material stuff. It is the myth of being rich and famous. These external drivers will give only shortlived rewards. They are the drivers of our ego. But in the end, we can ‘have it all’ and still feel empty. That is the splinter in our minds – something is still missing.
This old way of doing things is characterized by ego-driven values:
- Separation and Individualism
So how then, can we do things differently? What are the new ways?
Heart Oriented Values
The Truth is not ‘Out There’ – it is Inside of You.
“Each one has to find his peace from within. And peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances.” ― Mahatma Gandhi
All great ancient wisdom and teaching talk about the same thing. True peace and happiness can only be found within. We know this from our direct experience because we build Tribepreneurs from our intuition. We make the biggest moves by listening to our bodies. If it feels right, we go for it. If it doesn’t, we let it go. This is the intelligence of the body. And it is the New Leaders live from the heart and use this intelligence wisely.
They build businesses that are characterized by heart oriented values:
- Connection and Collective
The Heart-Brain Connection
A brain is a wonderful tool, but sometimes a terrible guide. Developing your intellect will surely get you far in life. However, if you want to build your business in line with your deeper mission, you might want to listen to your heart.
It talks about heart coherence, a state of harmony between your brain and your heart. This state is associated with positive emotions, enhanced cognitive functions, and improved overall well-being. You can train this state. It is called Heart Rate Variability (HRV) training.
Learning to work with your heart is step one. Learning to develop your body intelligence has more levels to it though. Did you know that you have 100 million nerve cells in your gut? This is as many as there are in the head of a cat. (BBC Health)
The ‘Second Brain’ in Our Stomach
“There’s an entire ecosystem of bacteria and a vast neural network operating in our guts. This ecosystem is our second brain, and comprises some 100 million neurons, more than the spinal cord.” (PsychologyToday)
This video explains it perfectly.
Nerve Cells in the Solar Plexus
Apart from the heart and the gut, we have another source of intuition. This inner knowing is located in our solar plexus. It is a brain, but a brain in reverse. In our brain, the so-called grey matter is on the outside and the white matter on the inside. In the solar plexus, it is the opposite. Grey matter, composed of nerve cells, makes it possible to think. White matter, composed of nerve fibers, makes it possible to feel. Because of the outer layer of white matter, the solar plexus feels everything in the body, in every single cell, and is thus able to constantly restore balance. (With-Omraam)
You might already have sensed it. There is more than meets the eye. You have an incredible instrument called the body. You are far more than your mind. And this lies in the power of your sixth sense.
The Power of Intuition
Intuition is the power to feel what’s right. It is our sixth sense that is in direct connection with our subconscious. You know when you have a ‘gut feeling’ about something, you better listen. It is the intelligence of the body, that can guide you on your mission as a New Leader. True wisdom is felt within.
That is why it is important to pull the splinter out of your mind, to listen to your gut and follow your heart. When you do that, you can make a lasting impact, from a state of being. It is here where magic unfolds. When you build a business from this wisdom, you are listening to the intelligence that is far greater than your limited mind can ever come up with.
This is why you have been looking in the wrong place for your next move with your business.
How to Pull the Splinter out of Your Mind
In order to live your mission fully, you can now see how important it is to develop your body intelligence. And when you do, you will see magic unfolding before your eyes. Other people will truly ‘feel you’ when you talk to them. You will get help from the most unexpected sources because they align with your mission. There is something that cannot be explained with words. You will experience the Great Mystery of LIFE.
Tips to increase your sixth sense:
- Develop body intelligence
- Practice HRV to develop heart intelligence
- Learn to trust your intuition – listen to your gut
- Train solar plexus awareness with mindfulness
- Connection with nature
- Follow the signs of synchronicities
Stop thinking about your next moves. Slow down. Feel and listen deeply to the intelligence of the heart, the gut, and the solar plexus. And then once it feels really good, go out there and be the change you want to see in the world.
- Surround yourself with high-frequency individuals
- Use the power of the Mastermind
A beautiful way to grow intuition is sinking into a state of presence with others. A ‘real’ Mastermind Group provides that space. Unfortunately, most Mastermind Groups are focused only on brainstorming and accountability. But at Tribepreneurs we facilitate groups the way Napoleon Hill described it almost 100 years ago:
“When two or more people coordinate in a spirit of harmony, and work toward a definite objective, they place themselves in position, through that alliance, to absorb power directly from the great universal storehouse of Infinite Intelligence.”
That infinite intelligence is directly connected with your subconscious mind. And with body intelligence you will tap into it. Whether you are just starting or have been in business all your life, growing your intuition pays off. Period. The more you can ‘tune into’ your vision and translate that into an actionable plan, the more you will thrive personally and inherently contribute to the lives of others. Isn’t that pure magic?
We offer a wide variety of possibilities for you to taste it, try it out, or when you are ready to commit; join a longer journey with your own tribe of change makers.
