Do you know these people?? They ask for advise and then don’t use it? Are YOU an askhole and get other’s opinion just to turn around and do the opposite? We all fit into the askhole category at any stage of our business and personal journey.
I rarely follow the advice that I’m given. I like getting other people’s opinions because it gives me perspective on the issue. I know how I feel, but how are other people seeing the issue? Is there something I’m missing? Has someone had experience with my problem? That’s why I love getting other people’s opinion. But at the end of the day, I have to make the call, and I always go with my gut.
Whether it’s business decisions, my life direction, or dating choices, I go with what I feel is right…even if goes against every piece of advice I sought out. It’s not logical, because many times I am wrong. But, more often than not, I’m right. And that’s why I’m writing about this. I want everyone who reads this to learn to trust their intuition.
What is intuition? Webster defines it as the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning. ( aka your gut!)
It can be really hard to listen to your gut, especially when it goes against conventional wisdom. I’ve done it many times and because I haven’t listened to myself, I’ve learned that my instincts are spot on and I’ve learned why trusting yourself is so important.
Always remember, it’s your business, it’s your life, it’s your romantic life. DON’T LET OTHER PEOPLE MAKE DECISIONS FOR YOU. Again, it’s YOUR life. You are the one that has to deal with the consequences of your decision everyday. Trust yourself and make the best decision for you. Just forget what other people might think of your decision and think of the regret you’ll feel if you don’t listen to yourself. I guarantee you’ll sleep better and be more successful in the long run if you follow your intuition.
