Conflict between heart and brain

Tiffany Brar
Posted February 20, 2020 from India

The toughest situation that I undergo in my life is when there is a conflict between my mind and my heart. As a woman, as a founder of an organisation, as a leader leading my blind community and as a visually challenged perso, I have faced so many hurdles, emotional and mental conflicts.

As a leader the toughest job is decision making. Analysing the problematic situation and to find a solution that helps in solving the problem is the biggest conflict that I face. Not only me, everyone in this world face such situation either in their personal life or official work. The decision which we take in the problematic situation should be positive and convince everyone.

At times I get confused that I need to listen to my brain or my heart. My heart takes decision in one way and my brain takes decision completely in another direction. Is that a kind of walking on zig zag road or like playing see-saw where we go up and down?

In my initial days of my career, where I am a decision maker, and when my decision goes wrong the critics that I received made me to go down in my confidence level. At such times I used to feel that I should have applied the technique of “ESCAPISM” but that is not a quality of a good leader. Mostly I feel at this stage, I feel fragmented and frustrated.

It has been years and years of experience with practice, that made me strong and confident in taking my decisions. When my heart and brain accepts each other, I find most of my choice is correct.

Till date whenever I need to take crucial decision, the first thing is I try to connect my brain with my heart ad this helps in resolving the conflict between the mind processing and the intellectual road.

Tiffany, I agree to what you said and I quote: "When my heart and brain accept each other, I find most of my choice is correct" I still have that kind of confidence when taking a decision. Thank you for sharing.

Hi Tiffany,
How are you doing. Thank you for your thoughts on this. It is very true that we all have that conflict within us. That is why it is good to always meditate so we harmonise the heart and the mind.
You are an exceptional leader and one that inspired us all. The fact that you have overcome so many hurdles in life and are still going on strong is extremely amazing.
Keep doing what you do. Have a lovely day.
