    Personally

    My mind, can be socialised by a range of different other aspects and opinions.  It will always consider risk management and tend to take a clinical approach to things.  Yes, it can also be creative, but that is with the help of my heart . My mind's voice tended to...

    Your first thoughts on a subject should assist

    you on your deciding what to do in so many situations, because your heart first receives the stimulae and only after it has considered it does your brain get involved and compare experiences and history.

    Quitting is not giving up,

    it is choosing to focus your attention on something more important. Quitting is not losing confidence, it is realizing that there are more valuable ways you can spend your time. Quitting is not making excuses, it is learning to be more productive, efficient and effective instead...

    Why I Believe In Putting All My Eggs In One Basket

    There's an expression "Don't put all your eggs in one basket" which means don't put all your hopes in one venture. You should always have a back-up plan.Let's say I think to myself that I would like to experience X but I'll have a back-up plan Y, just in case. What happens is the...

    Be yourself. If you water yourself down to

    please people or to fit in or to not offend anyone, you lose the power, the passion, the freedom and the joy of being uniquely you. It's much easier to love yourself, when your being yourself. :)

    Follow Your Heart, But Don't Forget To Take Your Brain

    Many times in my life I neither followed my heart nor used my brain to make some decisions. I really don't know why I did what I did, but I'm sure it was based partly in fear and anxiety, or just giving up on finding the right person. Now I've learned what consequences those...

    The Universe Conspires To Help

    One of my favourite books ever is The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, which is about following your heart. I just LOVE that book! (I've just discovered that Paulo and I share the same birthday). There's a quote in the book that goes: "And, when you want something, all the universe...

    The mind can complicate everything

    but the heart simply knows if it feels right or wrong. That doesn't mean don't think at all...It means, don't ignore your heart. It is your conscience, your truth, and your path.

    Our society is driven by our minds,

    My Own Heart

    I believe wholly 100% in following your heart (in most cases), yet I find it so difficult to follow my own. I've been working on that a bit the past year or so, doing things I've always wanted to, but never had the courage (or opportunity) to do, but there are so many other ways...

    use your mind so I do believe you should follow it as you might regret it!As once that heart is broken it can't be fixed again so you only got one chance of following your heart which is the first and only one time!When your heart gets broken it's never the same again! It always...

    How Do I Do That?

    When people say to me that I should follow my heart, or my inner "something", I always try to figure out how I do that. As if there were a how  to do list, but when we try to find a method for it, or define what it means, we are not following our heart anymore. Right ? Sometimes...
