Intuition: The Secret You Don’t Want Your Competition to Read

Intuition is a secret the most successful people in the world use extensively. Following your intuition can lead to breakthroughs that are not possible any other way.

The challenge is you can’t really "figure out" how to use it with rational thought.

Intuition is the "feeling" you get that prompts you to follow one particular path, action or idea over another.

It is nothing more than human subtle energy observed and acted upon. Quantum Physics is the modern day scientific study of human subtle energy.

Starting today start using intuition in your life.

Whenever you have a feeling you should do something, STOP.

Realize what you are feeling and take a brief moment to write it down.

Then simply develop an action step based on your intuition.

By doing this exercise you are developing awareness by focusing on every moment. When you recognize it is there and available you will be more sensitive and able to use intuition consistently.

Give a shot and evaluate how you feel and your results when you use intuition consistently.

PLEASE Don't Make me Jump Through Hoops

Here's something we can all learn from.

About 2 weeks ago I went to my local Office Max to order a name tag for networking functions. I thought about doing is for a LONG time and finally got around to it.

I ordered, was told there was some question on the jpg image I wanted to put on the badge and was given the option to pay when I picked up.

Today was the day after my name badge was supposed to be ready. I was in the area so I stopped in. Steve, the manager of the Copy Max area took care of me. "Do you have a receipt?"

I did not.

Steve looked high and low. He asked if I had my receipt again. I didn't. I don't think he believed I never got one.

Finally, after rubbing his head and sighing heavily, Steve told me he had no idea where my order was. I should call on Monday and talk to someone whose name I cannot remember now.

Instead, I'll call another vendor.

Here's the take-away. Life in business sometimes has challenges. It's going to happen on occasion. If things go wrong with a clients order, correct the problem at the CLIENTS convenience, not yours.

Caring goes a long way in retaining business. While Office Max maybe close by, it is certainly not convenient in this case.


Follow Your Feelings for Greater Productivity

Time to Read: 90 Seconds

Have you ever had a time that you thought “I have a feeling that I should _____.”

Then you didn't follow that inspiration and the results were less than spectacular.

Instead of going against your feelings, follow them instead. “Go with the flow” so to speak.

1. When faced with a decision, start by understanding exactly what you are feeling. For best results, write your feelings down as they arise.

2. Consider the final result you are seeking from this decision. Think, “I am looking for ____ result from this decision.” Write down the result you’re after.

3. Follow the path that feels the best, even if your “rational” thoughts contradict it.

4. You’ll know you're on the right track because you will feel happy and stress free instead of having a pain in the pit of your stomach.

5. Write down the result you gained from following your heart. Doing this exercise repeatedly will help you learn to trust your inspirations instead of ignoring them.

You’ll be on your way to tapping into one of the most powerful forces available to you – your personal creativity and genius.
