Ego vs Intuition. What's the difference?

#ego #intuition Apr 01, 2021

According to The Conversation, nearly half of the Americans believe in their intuition to know what's true. But what do the rest half of the people follow? The answer is “there could be many of the underlying emotions influencing one’s decision power." These underlying emotions sometimes appear as manifested beliefs based on past experiences, or sometimes they appear as the fear, or sometimes they appear as the voice in your head. All these emotions come under the tag of your "Ego."

Has it ever happened to you when you’re about to make a new move, take a tough decision, or faced with something unusual? You're advised to “believe in your instincts, or move with your gut?" Everyone's been there at least once in a lifetime. You might have been repeatedly told to listen to your inner voice, but, in reality, it's surprisingly complex because your inner voice is not always your intuition. Often it is your mind and ego speaking to you, and following them blindly...

Some Women Choose to Follow Men

#mindfulleader Apr 01, 2021

“Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams. If you're wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn't love you anymore.” Lady Gaga

Recognize your fears and do it anyway. 

You understand that having resistance is a way to stop you from achieving a breakthrough.  That resistance comes from fear, and therefore we need to approach it as just that, Fantasized Experiences Appearing Real. They are not real, therefore just do it. Another side of resistance is our ego, resistance to becoming vulnerable.  If you feel overwhelmed, anxious, or any negative emotions about doing something that you need to do, that is a way resistance manifest. Remember that anything that is coming to you as negative, is not real. 

Willingness to explore and welcome changes and opportunities. 

If there is something that never changes, is changed.  Therefore, we need to learn how...

4 Steps to Overcome Self-sabotage

Have you ever come across a situation where your fear and anxiety preclude you from taking up a new project or any decision that might put you in a good position? Did you ever find yourself among the chaos of past experiences limiting your potential? 

Is it Intuition Or Fear?

According to a survey, about 39% of people surveyed would not pursue their dream job out of their fear, while 14% accepted that their fear negatively affected their careers. This is something that limits your chances to attract more of the positive things in life.

Often, what we feel is not valid. For example, you receive a project that you have been longing for long, and you know that it would open doors of growth for you, but suddenly, you get uncomfortable feelings about it that stop you from taking it up. So, you see, your fear and anxiety keep you away from what you believe could benefit you and this self-sabotaging behavior keeps you stuck with your money.

A common question that might pop in such...

7 Steps To Talking Finances With Your Partner

Experts agree that the solution to solidify a relationship is by being honest about talking about finances with your partner. 

According to a TD Ameritrade study, 41% of divorced Gen Xers and 29% of Boomers say they ended their marriage due to disagreements about money. 

However, knowing about where you stand as a couple when it comes to money and finances and what you can accomplish together is a recipe for success in a relationship. It builds trust and a sense of togetherness.

Of course, things would be a lot easier if these conversations were made before getting married and then continued during the marriage.

Here are the reasons most couples stop talking about money:

  • Fear of being judged by their partner or in-laws
  • Fear of disagreements that will lead to divorce
  • Fear of rejection
  • Avoid increased anxiety 
  • Fear of rejection
  • Fear of having to be honest about secret spendings or secret accounts
  • Fear of failure
  • Fear of becoming vulnerable
  • Fera of projecting...

4 Reasons Why Financial Literacy Is Key For Women Entrepreneurs?

Women are one of the most critical business drivers in today's global economy. They represent half of all international business graduates, comprise a large part of the work-force, and formulate 1/3rd of the total percentage of entrepreneurs worldwide. 

Today, we are proud to see women who have committed to diversified roles in all professions worldwide. Their ability to be efficient managers has pushed them to explore new paths and reach new heights.

At the same time, however, women are not as financially literate as their male counterparts. They are often under the impression that financial matters are better-taken care of by men or that they have to rely on a family member for financial management support. 

Independent research conducted to look at women's financial literacy projected that women were more likely to fail at a financial literacy quiz than their male peers. The data suggests the low ability of women to decipher the terms involving in-depth financial...

Want To Build Smart Spending Habits? Here Are 4 No-fail Ways To Get Started.

The changing dynamics of the world might have led Americans to change many things, but saving habits is not one of them. According to the Atlantic, nearly half of the US citizens do not even have $400 in their accounts as a reserve in emergencies. These statistics are bleak and point to a grave financial situation that we all find ourselves in. Saving rates in many of the developing economies of the world, including Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and European countries, have been increasing steadily. However, America is not one of them. 

The Covid-19 pandemic locked most of the Americans in their homes, and with traveling, dining out, and other activities outside their families came to a static halt, it appeared that we were saving more. The savings aggregate improved for a few months. Still, while talking to CNBC, financial experts reported that the current trend might have significantly less or no lasting effects on Americans’ saving habits. 

Our poor saving habits...

How To Measure Your Financial Performance As a Female Entrepreneur in 2020?

According to studies, women-owned businesses have increased by 114% in the last decade, and women own about 39% of firms (held privately) in the United States! 

At the same time, several gender-based obstacles and unfavorable business conditions surround women. Even though they are passionate about driving change, it is not hard to see why women entrepreneurs may be struggling to maintain their businesses.

Despite the growing success of businesswomen and female entrepreneurs in the industry, studies show that women-led ventures are more likely to collapse and not meet their intended goals. This is due to several reasons: lack of professional financial assistance, an inability to follow a financial budget, or investing more resources than needed.

However, this does not mean that they can't learn and get ahead of the game! The 2019 Forbes list of America's richest women included a diverse set of women from many industries such as cosmetics, fashion, technology, and many more!
