If you are directionally challenged and hoping to find a solution here, I’m sorry to disappoint you. On the other hand, if you have trouble making decisions (or trusting your decisions), you have come to the right place!
Your brain has many wonderful functions but making good decisions isn’t usually one of them. It’s way too logical for its own good. Or you end up thinking yourself in circles and never coming to a clear answer.
Have you ever made this pros & cons list about a potential boyfriend? (I have!)
- He’s very good looking
- He has a good job/makes good money
- He’s sweet to me and treats me well
- He’s funny
- My friends and family like him
- He’s kinda creepy
Ok, I might be exaggerating a little bit on the Cons but you get my point. How many times have all the signs looked good… or you had a long Pros list… or a decision made logical sense yet something inside you was screaming that you were making a mistake???
That is your inner GPS.
If you can turn off your thought-obsessed mind long enough to feel you gut instincts, you’ll start making better decisions on every topic.
Try to get in tune with what it feels like on small things so you will clearly know its signals when you are facing an important decision.
To give you an example, I feel my GPS a little bit above my belly button. A NO signal feels like a knot or nervous feeling like a wash cloth being rung out. A YES signal feels like a cheerleading squad jumping up and down with pompoms and cheering me on.
Everyone feels their GPS signals differently. There is no right or wrong… just get to know what your own unique signals feel like. Once you have identified them, you will be astonished at how easily they lead you to make effortlessly good decisions!
Are you in touch with your inner GPS? What do your signals feel like?
I’d love to know!
