3 Mistakes that Undermine Your Intuition
Here are the top 3 mistakes I routinely see women make that completely sabotage their own intuition.
1️⃣ Asking how they should feel
I see questions every day in different facebook groups where someone explains a sitch then asks, “Should I feel upset about this?” I don’t know, are you upset?!
If you don’t like how you feel, you can work to change how you think and respond, but asking strangers on the internet how you should feel is the furthest from listening to your gut as you can get.
2️⃣ Getting outside opinion what they should do, first
Here is something I recently started working on. A decision would need to be made – should I make my lesson a free challenge or a paid workshop? – and I would immediately ask my business coach friends or my spouse. I barely spent any time thinking about what I thought was best for my business and my clients.
It’s hard to trust yourself when you place everyone else as an expert. It’s not that you can’t ask for opinions, but spend more or at least equal time figuring out what you think.
Google, podcasts, audiobook/books, Facebook groups, e-courses, they are all amazing sources of information but you can definitely overdo it.
The more you consume, the less you rely on your own thoughts and beliefs. I know I’ve been overconsuming when I feel more confused. I feel at a standstill because I have so many other thoughts and opinions running through my head.
Make sure you leave enough space for your own thoughts and creativity to flow. Spoiler alert: You have the answers already.
Many women confide in me that they don’t know exactly what lights them up, what aligned life and mindset they are after. I help women slow down, so they can ditch stress without guilt. If anything in you is ready to for a different way, let’s talk.
