Over the last few days, I’ve been talking about finding the one thing in your life and/or business that makes everything else easier and focusing more of your energy on that.
When we do that, everything else pretty much takes care of itself.
And, as I mentioned previously, that one thing for me is sleep.
So what the heck does that have to do with your intuition, and how could your intuition be drunk?
Enter my mentor, Jason Goldberg.
He first shared this idea of your intuition being drunk in his brilliant book, Prison Break.
Here’s the thing…
Along with your other fundamentals like eating well, moving your body and breathing, sleep has a big influence on your state of mind and the quality of your thinking.
And, as Jason mentions in his book, your state of mind and quality of your thinking are directly related to “the dependability, truthfulness, and power of your intuition”.
In other words, if we’re deep in sleep debt, poorly nourished, and sedentary for long periods, our energy is not going to be where it needs to be, and it’s as if our intuition is buzzed.
Guess what happens when you try to ask a drunk for guidance?
You get shitty answers.
I’ve experienced this myself more times than I’d like to admit.
Whenever I notice myself thinking less-than-stellar thoughts, it’s usually because I’m tired, hungry, or haven’t been to the gym in a while.
And trying to ask my intuition for guidance in that situation would not be a good move.
The bottom line is this…
It’s true that the quality of your life is directly related to the quality of your questions…
But if we want quality answers to those questions, we also need to make sure that the person we’re asking (ourselves) is in the right condition to answer.
As soon as you notice they’re (you’re) not, take that as a sign that you first need to ‘sober up’ by increasing your energy, before coming back to answer the question.
Take a nap, go for a walk, do some burpees, take 5 deep breaths, whatever your body is asking for.
You wouldn’t take life advice from a drunk, so why would you believe the thoughts you experience when your energy is low?
