Regardless of the issue before us, when we need to make a decision there is always the option of being guided by the heart.
Working with various groups of folk, mainly postgraduate students, employees and freelance operators, it is clear the question of how to decide occupies a large chunk of time for many people.
With pressure on us to make the right decision – ‘right’ according to some unspecified criteria only known to ‘them’ – life can be tough. That said and accepting we will never please everyone, being guided by the heart is a valid method to adopt when needing to select A, B or Z.
If we are dubious about how things will go when following this path, we should perhaps refer to past choices made in a similar fashion.
How many times has our heart let us down? Really? In all probability, the occasions we wish to think of as disasters may now be looked upon as key stepping stones towards a larger, more fruitful opportunity, no?
If, on the contrary, all actually turned out well by being guided by the heart, then that in itself is good reason to do it again we might argue.
However you arrive at a decision, I appreciate your presence here today. To set up a complimentary coaching session, via Skype or Google+ hangout, possibly to explore choices you are facing, please get in touch.
For now, thanks for reading this ‘Being guided by the heart‘ post.
