Have you ever observed young children playing hide and seek and noticed how the little darlings are quick to cover their eyes when they don't want to be seen? As if doing so magically grants them invisibility.
Well, a fascinating research study sheds new light on this behavior. It turns out that children don't think that they're totally invisible when they hide their eyes. They just think that you can't see "them". Confused? Don't be. Let me explain.
During the study, researchers played hide and seek with different groups of 4-year-olds and questioned them afterwards. The questioning went something like this:
Researcher: When you cover your eyes, can I see you?
Researcher: When you cover your eyes, can I see your legs?
Researcher: Your hands?
Researcher: Your feet?
Researcher: When you cover your eyes, can I see your head and your hair?
Researcher: When you cover your eyes, can I see you?
The same response pattern emerged as different groups of children were questioned. This led researchers to conclude that the children were making a clear distinction between “the body” and “the self”. Intuitively—they understood that who they were was something beyond the physical body. And that by hiding their eyes, they could prevent others from looking inside of them, where “the self” resides.
That blew me away! These little ones are walking around with a level of clarity about who they are that most adults don’t possess. That is, until they grow up and unlearn it from us. Can you imagine how powerful they would become if we supported them in remaining centered in the reality of being spiritual in essence and human in expression? Who knows? Maybe they’d be bending molecules with their minds and spinning off new civilizations in their spare time!

Encouraging small biz owners is important b/c owning & running a small biz isn’t as glamorous or as easy as we entrepreneurs make it look! 💪🏽 The work is REAL!! 😅 Looking forward to learning who receives the PT BIZ award on Dec 15th & happy to be a sponsor! 😊 Repost from @minglyawards - PT BIZ...

Some days, I'm tired of chasing my dreams...I just wanna ask them where they're going & meet them there later! Today is definitely one of them - But I refuse to complain about there being too much on my plate, when the goal has always been to eat!
Entrepreneurs and Business Owners: While working on your vision board, make sure you also work on that reverse vision board. Like, you really plan on manifesting some new things with the same old habits? Naw...you need to let some stuff go to make room for the new new. And FYI...I'm not referring to material things. Mental, emotional, and energetic... If your goal is to elevate, you have to start thinking on another level.
Want details on how to facilitate/incorporate a Reverse Vision Board class into your event? Message me at email@example.com

Entrepreneur Tip 2 of 7:
Did you finish tip 1? If so, move forward to this step.
Let’s figure out who you have in your circle and if they support your career.
Here are the steps:
1) write down the names of the people you exchange views and opinions with.. 2) write down if it’s on a daily, weekly, monthly, or on a less frequent basis
3) now, on a separate blank piece of paper, join up the names of those who also know each other.
Does everyone, or the majority, know each other?
If so, your network is too closed and won’t be much use to you.
A closed network needs to expand.
Do you want to know how to expand? I can help. Use this post so we can brainstorm and create a plan for expansion.
The off season is the most important season. You are going to spend more time preparing for the opportunity of the lifetime than you will actually spend in that moment. Taking the time to develop your weaknesses doesn’t end when the ball stops bouncing. This is a practice we must continue if we want to dominate life after sports.
