Are You Ready to Follow Your Instincts?

Have you ever had a situation or relationship or opportunity that looked like the thing…smelled like the thing…walked like it…talked like it…everything about it literally reeked of being the THING…

BUT

In the pit of your stomach you knew it wasn’t?

And you have absolutely no rational justification to walk away from whatever (or whomever) it is.

And you are left with a feeling of ‘eating away at you dread’ if you walk toward whatever (or whomever) it is.

This happens with everything from money making opportunities, relationships, career moves etc.

When this happens your mind starts loudly arguing equally for 2 points…one side of your brain shouts, ‘WALK AWAY…you know it’s not the THING and if you go toward it you’ll end up finding out at some
point and you’ll have to run screaming into the hills…leaving only a dust cloud behind. Why waste your time?’

You are tempted by this side…because it has a point and knows you well.

BUT

The other side of you head whispers 4 words over and over and over and over and over…

‘What if you’re wrong? What if you’re wrong? What if you’re wrong? What if you’re wrong? What if you’re wrong?’

You are equally as tempted by this argument because if you are human one of your deepest fears is that you’ll miss something.

So what do you do?

Well, in my life, there have been times where I have gone with both arguments…

BUT

When I think back to those times when that pit has been in my stomach…

The final outcome has always been that my instinct was right…

So, the question I have for you is…

When you think back…has your gut or your head ultimately been right?

How can you use that to listen to your instincts and take inspired action in your life now?

Leave me a comment and let me know your story!

    My gut has been telling me “no” too often for it to be always right. Mostly, I am too busy to follow through, or, if I initially go for something, even pay for it, I’ll procrastinate and find that I have wasted my hours. On the other hand, too numerous e-mails, junk mail and non-essential but pressing issues (like trying to find something that has inexplicably become lost) cause me to lose those hours that a more focused thought would help. My personality filter is that of a 1, so this is really one of my flow blockers. Thanks for the reminder.

      Hi Rosemary!

      Even if you can find 10 minutes in the day to focus, you will start to feel a difference. Believe me, finding this time is as important as ANYTHING else you are doing.

      Go Big!

  2. No story, just a comment. I’ve realized recently that most of the time, your intuition answers that “what if” question we ask ourselves all the time. It is our freedom of choice that makes us hear and do otherwise and makes us question if it’s right or not. If you feel it’s not right or is right, most of the time it is correct. You just have to make sure that procrastionation, fear, and doubt isn’t the influence of that feeling.
