Let’s suppose that there is such thing as intuition. Let’s find out when we should follow it and when not.
It is important to know that intuition is based on four grounds. Therefore, we are going to take a look at each of them.
If you feel you cannot trust a particular person, this feeling is most probably right. However, this is not only intuition speaking. Your brain reads information about the person in front of you, about their attitude, behaviour and gestures. If you cannot see their face your intuition comes up.
It is important to recognise which part of you is speaking – the intuition, the fear, the doubt or previous experience. When you understand where your feeling is coming from you will reach the next level. Intuition is based on faith and feelings about what is going to happen.
If you have a lot of experience in working with people and get benefits from your social connections, then it would be difficult for people to lead you on. In this case, do what you have been doing before, and trust yourself.
If people usually betray your trust, even when you thought they were decent and worthy, then you need to stop listening to yourself. This is only a temporary thing until you learn to read people better and learn to trust your intuition.
My advice is the following: on a piece of paper write all of the things you succeeded in by following your intuition. In all other spheres of your life, you need to be very careful and analyse all the information you are getting. When you admire something it is easier for you to make the right decision by following your intuition.
Intuition develops more and more after certain actions and decisions. Therefore, decide and act on the basis of your feelings instead of criticising everything and doing nothing. Take the first step and see what happens.
If you are just starting out in business, your intuition has not yet developed in this field. Try things out, make mistakes and see what you will learn. A lot of people don’t take risks in business because they have heard a lot of examples of their friends losing money and failing. They never consider the people who succeeded. They are only guided by fear.
Intuition will develop later when you have the necessary knowledge and no longer question everything.
It is surprising how faith in yourself and in the Universe allows you to do much more than if you are cautious about everything. Whatever you are doing, you need to believe in yourself.
Faith may be blind so it is important to also search for confirmation. If you believe in your skills and what you are doing, search and read for people who have achieved great success in the spheres you operate in. Even better, try to meet them in person.
- The first thing you think about
This is the hardest part. People are so used to doubting everything that their intuition speaks so low they could barely hear it. Ask yourself a straightforward question and listen to the first thing that comes to your mind.
This thought will not necessarily be right but with some practice, you will learn to recognise whether it is intuitive or critical.
In the beginning, a lot of thoughts will fill up your head so it will be difficult for you to distinguish which came up first. In such cases write everything down and read them one by one. The one that provokes the strongest reaction is most probably the intuitive one.
Intuition – this is the first thought that comes to your mind. When you make a decision after a few hours of analysing, this means you have considered all pros and cons and decided what to do based on that.
Practice in order to develop your intuiting. After a while, it will start helping you because of the experience you have gathered.
