[quote=”amanda” post=1914]If you want to make the right decisions, you need to follow your gut feeling. Your gut feelings will always guide you to the right decision.
The one thing, a very important thing that I have learned is to follow our gut feelings. No one can make a decision for us, as only we have our gut feelings. Other people don’t have our gut feelings. This is also a reason why we cannot give anyone advice on what to do as we don’t have the other person’s gut feelings. The best advice we can give to someone else is to follow their gut feelings.
Also we can’t take other people’s advice as they have their gut feelings, not ours. 😉

So, how do we go about making right decisions? :huh:

First we need to make sure that we compare apples to apples and not oranges to apples. For example: Someone wants to make a decision on their career. They think that they can make lots of money doing something, but on the other hand they are interested in doing something different, yet they don’t see how they can make money in it. They don’t know what to do as they are comparing apples to oranges. First, they need to make both of the directions equal. In their mind they say that both of those careers make them lots of money. Which one do they want to do? You will find that decision will be made instantly as they will follow their heart not logic. Where the heart is the money follows. 😉

This is how I made a decision. I had a successful insurance career, when I discovered my passion. I could not decide what to do. I was thinking about money that I was making in insurance and the coaching career that was just born in my mind. I was comparing apples to oranges. So, I thought in my mind that I have an insurance business and a coaching career that provide me exactly the same money. Which one was I going to do? Now, I was comparing apples to apples and the decision was made instantly! I followed my gut feeling and I chose what felt right. I chose the coaching career. I feel so incredibly blessed to do my passion. I don’t work anymore, I have fun every moment of my life! What a difference! :woohoo:

So, compare apples to apples and follow YOUR gut feeling. :cheer:[/quote]

Yes, I am applying this in my life, too. And I found that it is sometimes best to be silent. This way you avoid nay-sayers that could put you off track with their opinions. And if you find yourself in a situation where you do need to share your thoughts, simply say “I love you” to yourself. Believe in yourself!! For you know your are doing the right thing for YOU! :cheer:
