Now this is going to be a short tip and what I’m going to talk about is something that took me a long time to learn and that’s trusting my gut or my instincts or those hunches that we have throughout life.
You see, over the course of a day or a year, 24/7 your subconscious mind is taking in information, experiences that you’re having, things that you’re seeing, listening to, whatever it may be, your subconscious mind is always working and what it does is it takes this information combined with a motion and gives you those gut feelings or those hunches. This is why often times when you meet somebody, especially in a business decision or a romantic relationship, you kind of get that gut feeling, do I really trust this person? Or wow this person is just honest and they’re straightforward. You kind of get a hunch.
What I’ve learned over the years is really to rely on those because that’s a culmination of my experiences really screaming at me and often times in a business situation when I’ve ignored those hunches, I’ve actually gotten screwed over. I’ve gotten cheated and I’ve had people steal from me, and I knew all along and I had that gut feeling that this person was lacking integrity or was kind of a sleazy person altogether. Now I’ve learned that in my personal relationships as well as my business, to really follow my gut feeling.
What I want to ask you today is where in your five to thrive are you not following your hunches, your gut feeling? Then I want you to go for it. What would it be like if you were to actually take those steps? Maybe you have a gut feeling or a hunch or you should just be doing something different in your mind, body, soul, relationships, or your business. Now I’ve learned to trust my gut, especially around people and especially when it comes to business, and I hope those two things help you.
I’d love to hear what you get out of these. What do you get out of just taking five, ten minutes to really think about a problem or something going on in your life and then just trusting your gut? What does it feel like? What are you actually pulling out there? Then share that with me. I’d love to hear what you have. That’s it for me today, it’s just a quick one for you. As always, go out and inspire someone else by being the author of your own story.
