Your gut doesn’t have an agenda. It’s not political, it’s not jealous, it’s not petty. Your gut is not attached to any particular outcome. Your gut doesn’t care what other people think.
That’s why it’s your most reliable and honest friend, the only thing you should turn to for advice and the one thing you should never ignore.
Your gut is the purest, most concentrated form of your own personal intuition and it always tells you if something is a good or a bad idea. It will tell you that whether you want to hear it or not, even if your head or your heart (or both) aren’t in agreement.
Sometimes your gut will tell you something that doesn’t make any sense at all. Don’t take that lucrative job offer. Don’t jump at that seemingly amazing opportunity. Don’t go on a second date with the guy who’s perfect on paper. It’s trying to save you time and heartache – don’t ignore it.
Sometimes your gut will tell you to go for something that seems utterly crazy. Quit your job and follow your dream – you’re going to make it. Marry that man, trust me, you’re ready. Jump on a plane and see where it takes you – somewhere good, I promise. It’s trying to push you to be amazing – don’t ignore it.
Your gut won’t steer you wrong. It will take you to exactly where you need to be, even if it’s not where you expected or hoped. If you have a decision to make, don’t call every friend and family member under the sun – don’t solicit advice on Facebook or consult with every expert you can think of. There’s only one thing you need to listen to – and it’s already a part of you. Don’t ignore it.
