No. 110: Why You Need to Think With Your Whole Body (and How)!

What if you had something that could help you “sense” potential problems in relationships with new acquaintances, as well as established contacts? What if it could also give you useful hints towards achieving your valued goals?

AND, what if I told you that YOU ALREADY have IT in you?

I Ignored It for Almost 2 Years, & Paid a Painful Price

Most times that I’ve listened to, and/or acted on it, I’ve ended up much better off.

That’s why I always pay serious attention to it.

Whenever I’ve failed to do that, I’ve often experienced some stagnation – or even setbacks.

Example 1:

When I’m with people – new acquaintances or otherwise – it often subtly alerts me to insincerity, and even malice, that may be directed at me.

The uninitiated, who relate with me, may not know it.

But EVERYTHING that ANYONE says, thinks, feels or does (including writing) in relating with me, (most times) gets passed through that “filter” to get to me.

Many times that “feeling” (which actually permeates my entire being!) guides me to know what to believe, who to trust, when to say YES or NO etc.

And that has worked wonders for me in life.

Indeed, I continually succeed today, despite countless setbacks (and periodic attempts by detractors to pull me down over the past 10 years), because of it!

Example 2:

For almost 2 years – up till February 2013 – it kept telling me to relocate from Nigeria, to Benin Republic.

I kept “getting that feeling”, and yet I kept refusing to yield to it.

Guess what?

That roughly 20 month period was one of the most frustrating I ever had.

It was not that I did not do good work. But many things just never went right – often with the clients.

Over time, I began to avoid taking on new offline clients, and began focusing on online delivery of freelance writing and Excel-VB software development services, as well as products (e.g my books, and software).

But erratic power supply in Nigeria made working that way a punishing experience. It was so hard to carry on!

All this while, the subtle “hints” never stopped. It kept quietly telling me. At a point, I realized I had to “listen”, and do what “it” was telling me to do.

I eventually moved here in Benin Republic on 1st April 2013.

The first 3 months were tough.

My self-belief was pit to the test many times. But I held out, and eventually broke through.

Today, about 6 months on, the results I’m getting are much better than anything I got in the over 10 years I spent working from Nigeria.

That’s no exaggeration.

I enjoy much higher productivity. And I undergo less stress/strain. Mainly because I get more done with less effort, at less cost, in an environment devoid of perpetual annoyances!

And it’s mainly because I listened – and continue to listen – to IT.

What Is This “Thing” That’s Been Telling Me “Things”?

It’s called “Intuition”.

It can also be referred to as the “Sixth sense”.

I’d been haphazardly following its guidance for over 2 decades, without knowing it was often why I periodically excelled.

Then I began reading books that explained how making more conscious use of it facilitates better pursuit of one’s goals.

And I began doing it more deliberately.

Here’s a warning for those with “fast-food” mental attitudes:

This does not work instant wonders.

One must do it with persistence and diligence, over time to get the results.

There is a learning process.

So keep that in mind, and don’t expect overnight miracles.

To Use Your Intuition, You Must “Think With Your Whole Body”

Renowned mentor of some of the world’s highest paid International Speakers, Burt Dubin – in a Speaker Match Radio show with Brian Kaplovitch – once spoke in elaborate detail about how to use your intuition.

NB: I represent Burt Dubin as sole agent across the African continent, for sales of his speaker mentoring products and services.

That show’s edition was titled “Conquer Your Demons (What They Don’t Teach You At Speaking Business School)”.

Below is a verbatim transcript I made, of excerpts from the audio recording.

Read it, and apply the wisdom Burt shares in there.

NB: If you do so, YOU will NEVER be the same again. If the foregoing makes me sound like a preacher, take it as a sign that you should BELIEVE me :-)

====Start of Text Transcript of Burt Dubin’s Speaker Match Radio Message=====

“What most of us do not know is that your body – this is every person – not just you, everyone.

Everyone’s body is a sensitive receiver. Did you ever deal with someone and then say to yourself, “Oh that guy’s a pain in the butt”? Or a pain in the neck?

Your body is telling you there’s something wrong…what’s wrong with this picture?

Albert Einstein, the great Einstein said (when asked about the source of his cognitive skill), he said: “Well most people just think with their brain. I think with my whole body. I think with my whole body. “

I have learned that…now this is me speaking not Einstein, though I have his picture in my office, my grandmother gave me, an etching of Albert Einstein that she got way back…waaay way back 1932 when he spoke for her at Dorso Jephard (?) in Philadelphia.

That’s another great story, but we’ll set that one aside.

He said I think with my whole body.

Let me tell you what Emerson said. Ralph Waldo Emerson.

He said “What lies before you, and what lies behind you, are as nothing compared with what lies within you.”

Emerson was a brilliant, brilliant man.

And Dr Willis Harman, now alive and then the president of the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology, way way back before I was a member of NSA, I was a member of the Association for Transpersonal Psychology.

And I’d listen to him say these words, oh my lord late ’70’s – 1979 or 80 perhaps, into 82 to 83 and ah. And he gave a whole program on intuition.

And he said “Listen to no other voice”.

Now for whatever it may be worth, throughout my speaking career, as well as before my speaking career, this has been what guided every decision that I made.

Listening to my inner voice.

When 18 years ago Brian,  almost 19 years ago now, I was then a very successful speaker doing oh maybe 75 gigs a year for 3,500 to 5 o 6 sometimes 8.

And I got this intuition, saying I should no longer be doing this. I should abandon my speaking career and become a mentor for speakers. That was back in 1989…89!

I listened to the inner voice, I became a mentor for speakers and I may well be the best one in the world.

I’m not burdened with modesty. You know what Napoleon said? He said:

 “Modesty is for people who have something to be modest about.”

So listen to your inner voice, and I’m saying this to everyone on the call.

Listen to your inner voice. Do what your inner voice tells you to do regarding your career, regarding your life, regarding your topic, regarding your market, regarding the speaking practice that you involve yourself in – all of that.

Listen to your inner voice – you will not be wrong.

====End of Text Transcript of Burt Dubin’s Speaker Match Radio Message=====

Related Reading: 3 Past Write-ups On Intuition…Sixth Sense…etc

I’ve written in the past on the above theme. Three of them appear below.

Interestingly, the second article listed, was written following a request by someone who read the first one on Facebook, and took part in the discussion that followed.

1. How to Establish Truth, and Experience Less Doubt

2. Sometimes You Need to Act Without Your Intuition (6 Tips)

3. To Succeed You Need Your Sixth Sense to Unmask Insincerity

You may wish to read these 3 pieces, for more insights on how to use your intuition.

Remember though, that no one can realistically aim to achieve perfection at this. But you can – indeed should – become proficient. And that will make you succeed more.

Good luck!

What fears or doubts are keeping you from (a) taking up Burt Dubin’s monthly speaker mentoring, or (b) buying his products?

You can choose to purchase Burt’s mentoring at any of the three (3) levels listed below:

1. Top Shelf [Click here] | 2. Mid Range [Click here] | 3. Budget Delight [Click here]

Burt’s three mentoring packages can be likened to the seating options offered by airlines: Budget Delight (Economy); Mid Range (Business); and Top Shelf (First Class).

At least that’s how I like to think of them!

All three will get you to your desired destination of “speaking success-ville” – so long as you meet the requirements/play your part well (your fare, abide by the set guidelines etc). During the “flight”, the seat you have will determine how much personal service attention and preference the provider will accord you. It’s that simple :-)

So, make your choice:1. Top Shelf [Click here] | 2. Mid Range [Click here] | 3. Budget Delight [Click here]
