Tips for Trusting Your Natural Instincts

Your natural instincts go beyond just having a gut feeling, but understanding that your first choice or first instinct is trying to guide you to make the right decision. Here are some ways to trust those natural instincts.

Here are five tips to help you trust your instincts and build a successful business.
A quirky urge. A queasy feeling in your gut.
A subtle sense of foreboding or a quiet whisper, “This feels right.”
I’m sure you’ve had those intuitive whispers before.
The question is, how often have you trusted them?
Beyond our conscious awareness, our intuition is informed by minuscule untaught signals that point us to pay attention to something or someone.
Uninhibited by our biases, and wired only to perception, our intuition can guide us to predictions we later marvel at.
As chronic fear diminishes our capacity to tune into our intuition, it limits our ability to accurately assess risk, develop our business acumen and judgment, tune into our physical well-being (or lack thereof), seize opportunities, help those around us, and perform at our peak.
Needless to say, it takes courage to listen to your intuition, but the more often you do, the better you get at it.
Don’t put it off any longer because, as Gary Klein wrote, “The longer we wait to defend our intuitions, the less we will have to defend.”
  1. Follow your interest. When you can’t get an idea out of your head, your gut is telling you it has merit. …
  2. Commit yourself fully. …
  3. Immerse yourself in the world around your idea. …
  4. Ignore the rules. …
  5. Allow your idea to change.

Stop Just Going Along With Everything

There is no more just saying yes to everything and going along with things, even though you know in your heart and your gut it isn’t a good idea. You know when you get this sign. You can feel it deep inside. You may not realize yet it is your intuition talking, but you just have a weird feeling.

Think back to when someone encouraged you to do something, and you kind of have this weird feeling you shouldn’t do it, then you didn’t, and you saw how the situation turned out badly.

You realize – wow, that could have been me. I’m glad I listened to my gut.

This is what you need to pay attention to. Your natural instincts are there, you just need to learn how to trust them.

Understand Risk VS Reward

An easy way to start listening to and trusting your own instincts is to think about risk vs reward. When you get that gut feeling that is sending you a warning, think about what the risk of doing something is, versus the potential reward.

If you choose not to do it, what will happen?

What are the potential benefits or rewards if you do it?

Compare the rewards to the risks when deciding if you should listen to your gut, be more practical, or wait to see what happens.

How to Become More Inspired

Learn From Your Mistakes

As you seek more clarity in your life, allow your past mistakes to come up and teach you a lesson. Not to make you live in regret forever, but just to learn and move on.

The important thing is that you learn from your mistakes, but you don’t dwell on them. You are not just the bad choices you made. You are a collection of what you have learned throughout your life.

Give more appreciation to those decisions you made, no matter the outcomes, because every experience you have is teaching you something.

Think About Why Your Gut is Telling You Something

Try to get to the bottom of your gut feeling; where is it coming from?

Is it based on what you have experienced in the past, or is it just fear?

Do you think your anxiety is putting thoughts into your head, or is it your own natural intuition?

If you have enough clarity into who you are, you can usually tell WHO is talking.
