As a professional, I heard for years, “Trust your gut.” The thing was, I had no idea what my gut was telling me. In my gut I felt fear, anxiety and overwhelm. The more I listened, or thought I was listening, the more sure I was that my gut didn’t know what the heck it was talking about. That’s when I hired a coach to help me sort through and untie all the knots in my stomach.
Over time, and with her help, I learned how to tap into my intuitive voice. The more I did, the more I recognized I had:
- Much less chronic stress in my life
-Easier access to my creativity and imagination
-A much clearer understanding about myself and what I wanted for my life
-Far less negative self talk
-An easier time making decisions
In short, the way I showed up for myself as both a professional and in my personal life had drastically changed.
Here’s the thing. Everything you need to know about using your intuition as a leader is already within you. Your intuition comes from every experience, person, piece of media, successes and failures you have already had. It’s the unlearning and uncoupling from the fear, anxiousness or overwhelm we’ve become so accustomed to that is the greatest hurdle.
Last week, I shared in my blog some ways to start connecting with your intuition. In this week’s blog
, I share a bit about my personal journey of utilizing my intuition as a business leader as well as share some concrete examples of how you can start developing a deeper connection with your intuition as a leader, as well.
