Call it intuition, a sixth sense, or your “gut”. I like to think of it as the deep dark recesses of your brain. The sooner you learn to access and trust this powerful resource, the sooner you can tap into real change in your life. Whether it’s in business or a relationship, the more tuned into your gut you are, the better your decisions will be.
Learning to trust your gut
At one time or another everyone kicks themselves for ignoring that “little Voice” that tells them to do or not do something. Where exactly does that “little voice” come from? How can we develop it? Read or listen to interviews about people you consider successful. Stories of being intuitive, following hunches, and listening to the gut will most likely be present in the vast majority.
The following articles give a great inside look at the conscious and sub-conscious processes involved with what is commonly called intuition.
I learned to listen to my “gut” at a very early age once I realized that the times I’d made a bad decision were when I chose to tune out that familiar little voice inside. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to separate negative “mind chatter” from gut. Try thinking of your gut as a recollection of subconscious pieces of information your brain is feeding you, it may make it much easier for you to accept its warning signals.
My last entry was about the amazing in-person meeting of our like-minded community. The “challenge” has officially ended, but I choose to see it as morphing into a beginning. The lessons learned were deep and lasting. For six months we were immersed in learning how to shut off the “mind chatter” and negative thoughts that creep into our habits–especially those we didn’t realize we had.
Since that time I’ve been busy putting into action all that I’ve learned, “re-learned”, and reawakened. I am currently transitioning from this blog into a hosted website that allows me a lot more flexibilty www.iamsimplyd.com My new home is a work in progress, I’m learning to use the amazing tools I have at my disposal so please bear with me during the construction. 😉
I have to give a special shout out to Joel Comm. He doesn’t know me but I’ve been “following” him since last year. I’ve always been taught to learn from the best of the best. I choose my mentors in life very carefully. They must “walk the talk” and have “been there done that”. They must have integrity and a true passion for what they do. Joel, like John Assaraf consistently displays this.
http://www.joelcomm.com/my_best_day_ever.html In a world where we are innundated with self proclaimed “gurus” in every arena, how do you choose who to trust? If you trust your gut and watch what is said vs what is done, your answer will become clear. Joel’s philosophy to life is in line with mine. What I am striving for in terms of financial succes in a BIG way is about what I can DO with it, where I can make a difference, how I can better serve. THAT is my “big fat why”. Thanks Joel for showing me that my gut was right about you.
