What puts the fizz in your pop? What are you extremely passionate about? What would make you jump out of bed in the mornings, excited to tackle the day? Have you ever tried to answer these questions, only to find yourself stuck in “I don’t know!” land?
If so, rest assured, you are not alone! I have been in this blank space and I have seen many of my clients there too. The good news is, there is a way out and it involves tapping into all three of your brains. Yes, I said all three!
Latest findings in neuroscience have revealed that we actually have three brains: the cephalic (head) brain, the cardiac (heart) brain and the enteric (gut) brain. Most of the time, when we feel stuck, it is because we are only tapping into one or two of the brains. Our goal is to integrate these intelligences and in doing so, tap into a new creative way of thinking.
So what does this mean? The next time you sit down to answer the question, “What am I passionate about?” pause and ask yourself three questions:
What does my head say?
What does my heart say?
What does my gut say?
Give yourself some time to hear the answers and discover what new wisdom there is for you – and remember to have fun with the process!
