If you’re a senior-level professional seeking more freedom in your workday and life, embracing the power of mindset and future visioning can be a transformative tool.
It allows you to design your future from a place of effectiveness and integrity, aligning with your intuition and purpose.
To achieve this, you must cultivate a crystal clear state of mind, akin to a glass of clear water. In this state, you feel expansive, abundant, calm, and led by intention, purpose, and goals. You become nimble and deeply connected to your intuition—a crucial trait for high-level leadership and executive presence.
However, life’s demands and external influences can cloud this clarity, just like pollutants tainting the water. Stress, anxiety, and negative emotions can alter your clear state of mind, shifting it towards murky hues. Identifying these shifts is vital, as it helps you take timely action to regain your clear mindset.
So, how can you return to that state of clarity? Enter Mindfulness.
Mindfulness techniques offer a way back to your clear state of mind when you feel overwhelmed or anxious. Engaging your five senses grounds you in the present moment, dispelling troubled thoughts and reconnecting you with your intuition.
Try these simple mindfulness exercises:
- Sight: Describe five blue items you see, or pick a color of your choice.
- Sound: Focus on four sounds you hear around you.
- Taste: Chew on a stick of peppermint gum, savoring the flavor.
- Smell: Inhale the fragrance of something that brings you joy, like a scented candle or fresh fruit.
- Touch: Embrace a loved one or do some invigorating jumping jacks.
By immersing yourself in the present through these senses, you can quickly regain clarity and insight, grounding yourself back into reality.
Maintaining a clear frame of mind is essential for confidently creating daily changes that align with your essence and desired future. During challenging times, it may be difficult to sustain this clarity, but with mindfulness and awareness, you can return to it, building your envisioned future one intentional day at a time.
Amidst the chaos and responsibilities of being the primary care giver to your family, or a hybrid employee, this is an opportune moment to chart a new direction and discover what truly resonates with you. Nurture a clear growth mindset, allowing you to move forward with purpose, at home, at work, and where you can most make an impact.
As we adapt to a new normal (and guess what? It’s always a new normal), seize the opportunity to manifest the life you’ve always dreamed of, making the most of this one incredible journey.
