Clarity. It’s what we all want. It makes decisions so much easier. No sweat! No drama.

So, where do we find it?

I have a client who wants to expand his business, and his heart is giving him some scary instructions. He is resistant. What if this new direction messes everything up? What if it’s flat out wrong! He came in, because he was struggling. His rational brain was fighting his heart, and the indecision was driving him crazy! He wanted clarity.

In talking with him, I saw his face light up when he explained the new idea. He got goose bumps when he described what it would look like. He touched his heart as he spoke. It was clear to me.

Clarity. It looks like excitement. Aliveness. Even goose bumps. That’s the voice of the spirit. And it has the clarity you seek.

Ahhh, but clarity requires trust… trusting the wisdom of the spirit. Sometimes that feels like a HUGE leap!

. . . . . . . .

Coming TRU*

Learning to trust the spirit. From “not believing” to “knowing and doing.” Start small. Take baby steps… journal. Do the little things you hear and chance the outcome. Little by little, trust will grow. As you let go, more and more.

TRUST YOUrself. Then
you will know how to live.

A New Name

by lorikoop

in Clarity

It’s time! I’ve been thinking, reworking, planning my new Right Brain Business Coach vision. And it’s become clear . . . what I do, what I LOVE to do for others, is help them find clarity. Yes, I do access The Real You and what’s TRU to get there, but the “there” is clarity. So, I’m changing the name of my bi-weekly post from TRU (and “The Real You”) to CLARITY, plain and simple. Because clarity is what we all want and need to more forward. Hope you stay tuned for some clarity.

Our minds were designed to generate ideas. This is why our right-brain is so fun: it adventures far and wide, playing in open fields of dreams and imagination. We can run free like children, boundless and unrestricted. Every opportunity and possibility open to us. We were born for this — it is our creative core. This is where we discover who we are and what we are here to do.

Life.

Life can get in the way. It can separate us from our freedoms. Life can get us stuck in the muddy terrain of TO-DOs… far from the magical place known as our TRU self. We forget how to play; we think there is no time, or perhaps we don

I asked a bunch of business people what they struggled with most in their businesses, and it boiled down to one word: CLARITY. They lacked clarity about their products, their brand, their ideal clients, their marketing, their resources and/or time management. There are infinite responsibilities that come with running a business, and clarity is the key to good management. Clarity provides efficient movement forward.

When clarity is not present, we guess. Like a hamster on the hamster wheel, we may find ourselves working really hard but not getting ahead. How frustrating! It

TRU Stance

Create something special . . .  www.LORiKOOP.com

As I was debating what to write about this week, I thought of the act of deciding. How unless there’s a clear winner, I can get stuck. Examining the options, over and over again in my head. Hoping the right answer will POP OUT.

If you too find yourself struggling with a decision, this advice has helped me every time… “FEEL IT.”

I know. Simple. But we often forget. I often forget. My deepest wisdom and guidance comes from my spirit, which talks through my body. Instead of trying to engage my logical, left brain mind to figure things out, I can feel my way to the answer thru my body. In this way, I am aligning with what is most TRU for me.

To “feel it,” I saw myself doing the first option. I engaged the 5 senses as if I was really doing it. And thus, my body responded. I gave it an “excitement” score, ranging from 0 to 10. Down the list I went, looking for the option that generated the MOST excitement.

And it did POP OUT!
When I looked for the TRUth.

The.legs of one of my pots. I know.
I want to share them.
.
And I will.
It’s a matter of priority.
And yes, “feeling it!”

The right-brain and left-brain were designed to work together: the right-brain spiritually guides us in the direction of our purpose, and the left-brain physically gets us there. When we encounter fear, our thoughts are diverted. Instead of listening to the spirit, we hear the fearful thoughts. Clarity vanishes. We get confused. We can

TRU Valor

Create something special . . .  www.LORiKOOP.com

FOMO.

Fear Of Missing Out.

I heard myself say that the simplest way to market would be to choose just one group as my target market, not the three I was thinking about. After all, three populations meant three times the amount of work. But I was afraid of missing out.

FOMO.

I was afraid there wouldn’t be enough.
I was afraid I wouldn’t choose right.
I was afraid to miss great people.

FOMO.

It keeps us unfocused, not crystal clear.
It keeps us overworked and unbalanced.
It keeps us in the middle, not cutting edge.

FOMO.

It produces followers, not heroes.
I mean, what if I’m wrong! It might cost me everything.
Or, it might already be costing me everything.

. . . . . . . .

Coming TRU

Where are you afraid of missing out?

Over choosing and experiencing exhaustion?

Simplify.
Put down the balls.
Go with your gut and chance the outcome.

You’ll live longer.
Or, maybe you’ll just really live.
