An inkling may lead to a new invention or an improvement upon an already existing product. Ralph Waldo Emerson described it this way: "Man is a shrewd inventor, and is ever takingrepparttar hint of a new machine from his own structure, adapting some secret of his own anatomy in iron, wood, and leather, to some required function inrepparttar 124017 work ofrepparttar 124018 world."

Have you ever experienced a breakthrough time? An "A-ha" or an "Epiphany" moment? Arthur Koestler, Hungarian born writer, wrote "The moment of truth,repparttar 124019 sudden emergence of a new insight, is an act of intuition". Akin to a "sixth sense", intuition brings pieces together. It givesrepparttar 124020 gift of heightened awareness. One simple way to practice intuition and make it real into our lives can make a remarkable difference. You can start right now.

Here is how it works.

When you are faced with anything whererepparttar 124021 solution is not immediately apparent, thoughtfully and mindfully ask yourself one of these questions or a similar question of your own creation.

"What isrepparttar 124022 spark that is missing to make this into a fire?"

"Is something missing here? What is it?"

"How can I really make a difference in this situation?"

Quiet your mind, even for a millisecond. Breathe. For me, sometimes it helps to get up and move.

And then, listen (and speak or write down) your very first response.

Don't rationalize, categorize or intellectualize.

Simply let it be. Use your senses to flesh outrepparttar 124023 possibilities.

Perhaps you will not find an immediate connection. Later inrepparttar 124024 day, another insight will flash through your brain which will bring another answer or perhaps a more refined answer.

Listen or speak or write down this answer.

See where your intuition is wanting to take you. Decide that in all you do, you express artistry. As Lao Tzu spoke so many years ago, "A good artist lets his intuition lead him wherever it wants".

Where is it leading you? Go there. Live passionately. Today.

Mapping your Goals

Written by Judi Singleton

Continued from page 1

The game of life is won inrepparttar hours spent with oneself dreaming repparttar 124016 Impossible dream. When you are open to a new path one will present itself. You must dig within your own unique prespective of life to find this dream and manifest it for it is yours and yours alone no other person can dream this particular dream. Friends can advise, relatives can guide you with their experiences but it is your dream that is manifesting on this journey not theirs. Remember that Your Future deserves consideration. It will someday be your present reality. It's worth considering seriously.

Some pitfalls that keep us from obtaining our goals is setting our goals to high or too low. One ofrepparttar 124017 most frequent reasons why others find so much frustration with their goals is because they set them too high. Creating goals that are unattainable not only makes it impossible to succeed, but it also creates a negative attitude towards oneself. "I knew I couldn't do it." Well, setting a goal to be a ballerina when you are 65 is probably not very realistic. When you set goals too high and constantly fall short you may just give up.

The reverse of setting unattainable goals is when goals are set too low, there is no motivation to work hard. When you feel like you don't have to work that hard to reach your goals, you don't think about them nor do you really care if you reach it.

In order for people to feel compelled to work hard towards something, they must feel challenged. Setting goals too low decreases motivation and energy. So we go back to seeing in your minds eyerepparttar 124018 Christmas doll underrepparttar 124019 tree. You want her don't you? You get excited when you think about brushing her hair, riding her around in a buggy. So reach forrepparttar 124020 stars! You have withinrepparttar 124021 potential to move moutains.

When you set your goals make sure they are both challenging and attainable. This way you will be motivated to work hard and feelrepparttar 124023 rush of success when you accomplish your goals! Anticipation is sometimes as exciting as rewards. So go on make your map one step at a time. and remember it is good to have an end to journey towards, but it isrepparttar 124024 journey that matters, inrepparttar 124025 end........
