Here’s the next set of ideas from my appearance at TEDx San Diego – which was definitely a high point in my life so far.
Often we think that we need to look perfect and be polished to get respect, to be taken seriously, to be considered worthy, to be good enough. Worse, we think our intellect will get us through most, if not all, situations. And in that space, we will NEVER find our core Question (or our Answer). You see, THINKING simply will not get us there.
Why? Because our intellect is NOT in charge of this show – our emotions are. Did you know that 90% of our responses are emotional – ninety percent! And our emotions respond 400x faster than our intellect – 400x! By the time our intellect catches up, our emotions are way off in the distance, taking the lead.
So if you STOP your intellect, you just might find the Big Question you are asking yourself.
And once you do that, you get the coolest quest ever – finding YOUR Answer, FEELING your Answer. Which of course, enables you to find out what you really want, and to be happy when you get it… it enables you to get off the perpetual wanting things-getting them-feel temporarily satisfied until you-want things-get them-feel temporarily satisfied… and so on!
Your QUESTION sets the stage for you to find out what you really want, and to be happy when you get it.
Okay, that’s enough from me on the questions and answers for today.
