What if I told you each of us could have our own personal team guiding us through the journey of fearless (re)Discovery of self and beyond? That we could choose from an unlimited supply of advisors and that they would offer support, inspiration and advice – one on one – 24/7.
This can be ours.
I love this exercise I used it with great success with corporate teams who needed to think beyond their established parameters. The results always exceeded expectation. Most importantly it was FUN and allowed for lots of playful thinking.
There are more people ready to help us realize our dreams than we know.
reACTION [to change in the response to stimulus]: Day 25- Advisors
Make a list of all the people you greatly admire and respect.
They don’t have to be living and you don’t have to know them personally – I’ve used Mother Teresa, Oprah Winfrey, Hilary Clinton, Deepak Chopra, Dr Seuss and Steve Jobs among others.
Narrow the list down to your Top 5. These people are about to become your personal advisors.
Invite them into your imagination.
Ask each one for a statement in response to:
What advice would you give me?
What do I need to l know?
What is my next step?
The secret to this is not to think too hard and accept the first thing that pops into your head. Write down all responses.
Review and decide which ones to save.
Post in place where you will see.
Feel free to make up your own questions. You can invite new advisors anytime.
