Oprah Winfrey has a philosophy she’s shared with her viewers through time, which I just recently heard about. She states, “the world is constantly trying to get your attention”.
If you know anything about 12 step programs, you might have heard that you must hit “rock bottom” before you are able to take even 1 step on the path to recovery. Rather than waiting until the entire house falls around you, perhaps you can get it if it’s only a brick wall coming down. Or even better, only 1 brick. Maybe even only a pebble will strike you, or you may actually see the storm before anything strikes you whatsoever. However, the best way to get it, says Oprah, would be to get it in “the whisper”. This is what she said about this in a meeting to the Academy of Achievement:
“So now my goal in life isn’t to need to hit the eye of the storm, but to grab it in the whisper. …. The 1 thing which has enabled me to certainly attain both material success and spiritual success, is the ability to follow my instinct. It does not matter what you call it — nature, instinct, higher power. It’s the capacity to comprehend the difference between what your heart is saying and what your mind is saying. I go with the heart.” 1
Where can I find the whisper?
The majority of the time we’re advised to use our mind “Use your head”! The “still, small voice”, angel on your shoulder, your conscience, whatever it’s that guides your own feelings. You’ve got a hunch, an idea, a moment of inspiration….whispers, all.
Think about what made you choose to pursue your current dreams and goals. Where did this move come from? Can you get it at the whisper? Or did it take your home falling down?
Keep up the pace as you proceed through your short term targets, making certain you stay “in tune” with your whisper. It’s okay to be different, so long as it makes you feel appropriate, and you’ll understand, if you listen, if it’s ideal for you.
Maintain a “whisper” diary
Too many ideas can cloud our job at hand. 1 way to maintain your whispers from becoming a schizophrenic mess is to maintain a journal. I get an idea, and rather than letting it throw me off course, I write it down in the diary. Write it down, then make sure you check back often. If it’s worthwhile to pursue, do it. Your diary can include lists, 1 word entries, notes to go to a website, telephone numbers, names, whatever it takes to run your memory later when you’re able to get to it. Do not look at it as something you wish to publish later, thereby adding unnecessary baggage into the matter. . . .same difference. You receive the whisper, you get it down. Then act on it until it turns into a storm => pebble =>brick => wall =>.
Here’s a profound way to build trust and bond with your Animal Removal Company team. (Well, maybe not every single whisper….but those that may help them, or would pertain to the common goals you share). Your team is most likely on your mind a huge proportion of the time, so it’s highly likely you will get whispers which relate to them especially. Don’t be afraid to share them. Tell them you consider them. If your whisper is an issue, tell them. If it’s a curiosity, wonder together. They’ll appreciate your thinking of them and exposing your personal vulnerability. Bear in mind, as a leader, your aim isn’t to direct, but invite them to distract you, as their own best self emerges, and to take your leadership in as a means to help them locate that ideal self.
Find motivation from the whisper
Maybe the reason we dismiss these small messages so frequently is because it doesn’t just knock us upside the head. No big deal, only a little whisper. You do care, and your internal voice need never be louder than can be heard between your ears. It’s your higher power/ higher self/ God who guides your actions. Get excited about small things, and compact achievements for you and for your group. Set short-term and easy aims to encourage your big dreams. Let your team share these little fantasies and work together in achieving them. Who will bring 3 new ideas to our next meeting? Have you got an item that motivates you? Post a photo of it on our staff board….etc.
Your inner voice speaks and you’re ready to concentrate on it. Now’s the time to allow the world take your message out there. Project your whisper to the hearts and minds of those for whom it’s intended. Your whisper becomes a part of your identity, and that you are is a job of your whisper.
