Listen to Your Heart: How Intuition Makes You a Better Person

"Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life." ~ Steve Jobs

"To call woman the weaker sex is a libel; it is man's injustice to woman. If by strength is meant brute strength, then, indeed, is woman less brute than man. If by strength is meant moral power, then woman is immeasurably man's superior. Has she not greater intuition, is she not more self-sacrificing, has she not greater powers of endurance, has she not greater courage? Without her, man could not be. If nonviolence is the law of our being, the future is with woman. Who can make a more effective appeal to the heart than woman?" ~ Mahatma Gandhi

Have you ever had a gut feeling that turned out to be right? That's your intuition at work! Strong intuition can benefit you in surprising ways, both personally and professionally.

Intuition isn't just for historical figures like Winston Churchill. It's a tool we all have, ready to be used in our everyday lives. Whether you're facing a tight deadline at work or need to complete a research paper in college, intuition can provide a gut feeling about a situation, aiding you in making a quick and hopefully sound decision.

Steve Jobs famously trusted his intuition

Sometimes, our brains pick up on subtle clues we might miss consciously. Intuition helps us connect these dots, revealing hidden patterns or opportunities. For example, Steve Jobs famously trusted his intuition when making design and product decisions at Apple, leading to groundbreaking innovations such as the iPhone and iPad.

Intuition can spark unexpected connections in our minds, leading to innovative ideas and solutions. It allows us to think outside the box and approach problems from a fresh angle. Thomas Edison developed a multitude of ideas, especially the light bulb, which is a prime example of how intuition can lead to creative breakthroughs.

Warren Buffett uses his understanding of historical and intuitive sense

Having a strong intuition can help you sense potential risks or hidden opportunities that may not be immediately obvious, no matter the field you're in. This can give you an edge in various situations. For example, consider how the investor Warren Buffett uses his understanding of historical and intuitive sense of market trends to make successful investments.

Mahatma Gandhi's intuitive awareness

Understanding and being in tune with your intuition helps you comprehend your emotions, motivations, and values. This self-awareness enables us to make choices that align with our true selves. For instance, Mahatma Gandhi's intuitive awareness of his principles guided him in leading India's nonviolent independence movement.

Intuition can help us perceive nonverbal cues and emotional states in others, enhancing our relationships and communication skills. When we are in tune with our intuition and attuned to the intuition of others, it becomes easier to establish trust and rapport. Leaders such as Nelson Mandela, who embodied tremendous resiliency and antifragility due to the historical trauma inflicted on his people, often showcased this intuitive ability, fostering profound connections and trust.

Intuition can bring a sense of calm and clarity

Trusting our intuition can help us better understand and empathize with others. Relying on our gut feelings can increase our confidence and decision-making abilities. Intuition can bring a sense of calm and clarity in uncertain times, reducing stress and anxiety. Being highly intuitive can help us feel more connected to ourselves and those around us.

Intuition Shaped by Historical Experiences & Biases

Intuition is not a mystical power but a skill that can be developed and refined. Engaging in practices such as mindfulness, meditation, and being attuned to our instincts can be beneficial. Our intuition may be shaped by historical experiences and biases. Keeping a record of our hunches and reflecting on their accuracy can assist in refining our intuition over time.

Developing our intuition can unlock its many benefits and help us live a more fulfilling and successful life.
