Go With Your Gut And Become A True Success
When you think with your brain, you think intellectually or rather, rationally. For example, you’ve always wanted to go to film school but your chances of succeeding in the industry when you graduate is very slim.
Now, you are given the choice to go to film school or law school. Graduating with a law degree will get you a secure job, a secure future, and a life of financial success. So which one do you choose?
Most people choose law school and end up either dropping out or working in an industry that’s far from law. What did your gut tell you in the first place? Film school, right? If you only followed your gut, you wouldn’t have wasted so many years working on something that you knew wouldn’t make you happy.
All the great artists and all of history’s greatest personalities employ gut decision making – and it’s about time that you do, too.
Here are 5 tips to do just that:
1. Use your Right Brain
If you’re really good at math, then you must have an analytic and rational way of thinking. But if you’re better with words, then you must be right-brained. Though the world needs all the left-brainers the world has to offer to make it organized, those who find their true potential have always used their right brains.
So if you find yourself having no emotional attachment to things that you do, you might be left brained. Take down your walls and try to see things with an emotional intensity. If you think you don’t affect the barista you just screamed at for not having taken your order correctly, maybe it’s time you put yourself in her shoes.
Yes, you have the right to complain as a customer, but you don’t have to hurt that person. So even if you do have the right, use your right brain and be compassionate.
2. Learn the Benefits of Thinking Intuitively
Start reading about all of the world’s great leaders. What sets them apart from the ordinary man? It’s their ability to believe in their own intuition. They listen to others but in the end, it’s their own voice that they listen to. So brush up on your reading list and fill it with all the great stories of all the great men and women this world has known.
3. You Are Already Enlightened
Everyone is enlightened deep down inside – but what sets the great men apart from others is the fact that they recognize their own enlightenment. All the answers to all your questions are found deep inside of you – all you have to do is tap into your spirituality and your true being to reveal them.
4. Leave Your Ego Out the Door
Do you ponder why you haven’t met the love of your life yet? The answer could have been right under your nose. That one person whom you could have loved and who could’ve loved you back may be right beside you but because of your ego, you don’t even realize it.
And that promotion? All it could take to get it may just be a simple application – but you don’t even try because you don’t want to be rejected.
Take your pride and kick it out the door – it doesn’t belong in your road to success.
5. Learn to Access Your Gut Feelings
You know what they are, and you know when they’re talking to you. Your gut feelings are always there – that feeling of fear when you’re about to go on an adventure, that awkward feeling you get when you meet your boyfriend’s secretary, and that strange eeriness that you feel when you enter an old building. All these feelings mean something – and it’s up to you to listen to them.
In relationships, there are always red flags. If you give in to them, then you can save yourself from potential heartbreak. But if you ignore them, then you’re setting yourself up for a massive heart attack. Listen to your gut when it’s talking to you and let it build your true potential so you can go ahead to the road that you’re supposed to take.
They say that listening to your gut will get you nowhere. That thinking rationally is the only way to live. But when you live without emotion, then you’re merely surviving, and not really living. Existing isn’t living – but living with emotion is.
