Have you ever made decisions with your head, even though your heart and gut instinct wanted something completely different? And in return, do you know how good it feels when you make decisions with your heart and then follow them? Speaker and coach Tina Reimer can tell you a thing or two about it. She says: "I have not always listened consistently to my heart. Music was always an important part of my life and I even wanted to study music. But my head was louder than my heart; after all, you can't make money with music."
Her second great passion since her early childhood was travelling. Tina Reimer reveals: "I got the wanderlust virus vaccinated by my mother at an early age. It was clear to me that I wanted to see the world, travel to distant countries and get to know other cultures." At the age of 17 she met the love of her life, her current husband. Two years later she chose a career. Tina Reimer: "I wanted to choose between my two passions, music and travelling. And because my head was too loud when it came to music, I decided to travel."
Tina Reimer indirectly
No sooner said than done. Tina Reimer trained as a hotel manageress and was convinced that with this training she could work from anywhere and thus discover the world. In the lecture she says: "The plan sounded logical at the time. However, I didn't enjoy the training, and then I knew it wasn't mine after all. She moved into the event business and worked as an event manager for 17 years. Looking back she says: "The job demanded a lot from me and was very demanding. ...and as time went on, it just kept costing me more and more energy. "
I became emptier and emptier and suffered physical discomfort.Tina Reimer
Her unfulfilled heart's desire was to travel the world together with her husband. And so she fell into a kind of downward spiral that got worse every year. Today Tina Reimer knows: "Our mind is often a mean advisor. I could no longer sleep through the night and I got stomach problems. My mind could not find a solution to this enormous longing. I became more and more empty and suffered physical discomfort."
Tina Reimer: How she gave her ran one's heart over the other
But then there it was, the day that would change everything. Tina Reimer: "Suddenly I knew that it was time to listen to my heart. And since then I have been wishing that everyone would pay more attention to that voice again. Because in your heart lie your true wishes and longings. You may trust your heart, because it will not leave you alone. Our desires and dreams do not leave us alone. No matter how many times we try to solve them with our head or put them back into their drawers - they still won't leave us alone."
So you must follow your heart's desire. But what qualities do you need for that? What can you do to put aside your fears, worries and doubts? How do people proceed who consistently follow their hearts? And why do other people distance themselves so much from themselves that they become ill and unhappy? Tina Reimer: "I believe we all have a mission on this earth. And that is to be happy, to infect others and make the world a better place.
Tina Reimer: "The 4 pillars of health for a fulfilled life"
In her lecture, Tina Reimer mentions the four pillars for a healthy, fulfilled life. They are: Nutrition, exercise, relaxation and joy. But while the first three points are clear, the fourth is often not considered in connection with health. In fact, it is perhaps the most important one. Tina Reimer: "We can go to the gym every day, meditate or eat healthy food. If we don't do it with fun, we can always do it without." How much fun do you have in everyday life? Would there be room for more? The expert's clear appeal is: "Make joy your guiding star!"
Bag full of courage & trust
We all have topics in our heads that we cannot get rid of and that we are brooding about every day. These can be conflict talks or a change of job, for example, which we can't get out of our heads. Everyone has at least one of these thoughts in their head. So how do you manage to break through these thoughts and follow your heart? What do you need to trust your inner voice more?
Tina Reimer: "On the one hand you need courage and trust. If we pack these two aspects into our bag, we make our fear a little smaller. And with our packed bag we are now moving into the spaces of possibilities. On the day in question, I understood that I can shape my life differently than I had previously thought. Because I can earn money with what I do even when I travel. I can combine what I imagine my life to be: being independent and not tied to a specific place and earning money with what I love.
hand in hand with the mind
And so can you! What could your life be like if you did something you loved? Something you would much rather be doing than what you're doing right now? Just because you may not see an opportunity right now doesn't mean it doesn't exist. At the same time, you need a supportive environment that supports and celebrates you. An environment that paves the way for you and strengthens you instead of making you doubt and holding you back.
Tina Reimer: "What do your heart and soul need? What can you use to charge your personal batteries all the way to the top? What fills your heart? If you find out the answers and manage to fill your heart, you can infect others. Life is not about making others happy. It's about you. Because if your heart is strong, it can go hand in hand with your mind and carry others along as well.
Do what your heart won't let go
So have the guts to go for the one thing that won't let you go. Have the courage to stop hiding them in a drawer! Tina Reimer: "What can you do tomorrow concretely to come one step closer to this longing? Is it a phone call, an e-mail, a cancellation, a clarifying conversation or booking a ticket? What can you do tomorrow concretely to really make this one thing that never lets you go anyway?"
Find out and make yourself the promise to fill this thing with life. Give new attention to your inner voice and do what your heart won't let go of so that you can shine and infect others with this positive energy. Because if everyone follows this path, the world will soon turn into an even more colorful place. We wish you a lot of fun with it.
