Positive Pause – 30th November 2015 – Gut Instinct
We all have to make many decisions every day and sometimes our circumstances demand bigger or more crucial decisions be made. This can seem overwhelming – knowing what is the best path to take. Life altering decisions such as whether we should take a new job we have been offered, if we should buy or sell a house or what school should we send our kids to? The weight of these decisions can become heavy as the perceived results are significant. We therefore often ask family and friends for their opinions, we research, ruminate and ponder what the outcomes might be for each decision we have to make. All of these steps might appear to help but the reality is that they often add to our confusion.
The answer to making any decision lies in your gut feeling. If you have feelings of discomfort when you consider one of the options then you should know that this is not the right decision for you. Do not rush into making a decision until you have become aware of your gut instinct or feeling. This is the strongest ally you have – learn to trust it.
