6 Ways to Awaken Your Intuition Today

“The Intuitive Mind is a Sacred Gift” ~A Einstein

Mark Divine tells the story—when he was in combat training as a Navy Seal he heard the words “move.” There was nobody around telling him that. The voice was in his head.

Luckily he moved, or he would have got shot by a mistakenly fired bullet from a comrade in training.

The voice of our intuition doesn’t always come down to life or death…..but in a deeper sense it does.

We may not be faced with physical bullets, but if we don’t listen to the voice of our 6th sense – we’ll end up down a path that can feel like death to our spirit.

Ultimately, it’s our feelings that help us navigate life with more harmony, wisdom, and ease.

How to Know When to Quit

When to quit vs. When to stick with it:

Determination, perseverance and trust are pillars on any journey, especially the creative journey when you’re creating something from nothing. Whether you want to create a new app, become a doctor, or write a book—all these things take time, and often involve days when we’re not in the mood of doing what needs to be done. Quitting would kill the dream.

“Don’t quit – you’re just 3 feet from gold” is a famous saying from Napolean Hill. Les Brown tells the story of his persistence to get a radio gig. He’d walk in everyday to the studio asking for a job. Every day he was told there is no job. Eventually the owner took him on. Persistence is powerful.

But what about when quitting is the right thing to do? What about when quitting is the very thing that will bring you closer to your dream?
