Far too many times in life we’re faced with decisions about where to go or what to do, and sometimes we feel like we really haven’t a clue about which way to go. As gifted people, our creativity and imaginations kick in and and we consider, not only if we should go right or left, but if we should travel on one of the multitudes of variations anywhere in between. So how do we decide?
For the most part we learn to take the logical approach. We write down the pros and cons of each of our choices and go with the one that has the most positive points. Or we take the path that the highest number of people around us are suggesting we take because that seems to make the most sense .
But there is another option…
After going through the logical choices, we have to consider which of them feels best. This is the part of ourselves that we tend to ignore the most but is the one that can lead us along paths we wouldn’t otherwise take and that can bring us the greatest level of ultimate satisfaction – our intuitions.
We must ask ourselves, “If I were to know with absolute certainty which one of these choices is best for me, which one would it be?” Then we actually have to LISTEN for the answer. It’s usually the small voice that comes first when we talk to ourselves, before our logical mind steps in and joins the conversation. And, more often than not, it can very well be one of the options our logical minds wouldn’t have suggested!
Start doing this will the little things and you’ll find before you know it that the big decisions will become easier, too.
So when you have a decision to make about something in your life, think logically about it, and then consult your intuitive side as well. It may have the answer you’re really looking for!
