Our Intuition and Instincts are our Friends

Nonetheless, intuition speaks to us in many ways.

It can berepparttar reaction of your body to a person or a situation.

You tense up around threatening people.

You experience an uneasy feeling inrepparttar 142653 pit of your stomach when you have to operate in a situation where something is "not quite right." Sure, it looks fine onrepparttar 142654 surface, but there's more torepparttar 142655 story than meetsrepparttar 142656 eye.

Intuition worksrepparttar 142657 other way, too. Some people and places feel easy and comfortable. We feel strong and recharged around them.

They are good for us. We just accept it. We feel no need to question.

There are many applications torepparttar 142658 use of intuition in our personal and business lives. We tend do well in settings and around people that support our abilities and support us emotionally.

Your intuition can be a divining rod leading you to those settings. By monitoring your feelings, your reactions, your energy levels, you can determine whether something or someone is good for you.

A feeling of uneasiness, queasiness should serve as a red flag when, say taking on a new client, a new project, a new partner, a new job. Then it is time to call in your powers of logic, observation and analysis to ferret outrepparttar 142659 reasons why you are feeling this way.

More often than not, your gut will warn you before you are able to seerepparttar 142660 landmine.

I suggest looking at intuition and logic as two complementary ways of processing information. Ifrepparttar 142661 two aren't pointing inrepparttar 142662 same direction, more likely than not, you don't have all ofrepparttar 142663 information.

Proceed with caution.

And when they do pointrepparttar 142664 same way, you can be confident that you onrepparttar 142665 right track.

Then it's full steam ahead.

The Process of 'Vivid Thinking' Which Makes Success Certain! - Part 1

Written by Jason Katzenback

Continued from page 1

This study will not mean much to you unless you realize that an idea differs from a mental image, and unless you discriminate betweenrepparttar process of "thinking-in-ideas" and that of "thinking-in-vivid-images."

Your mind is a living consciousness, but you often permitrepparttar 142652 greater part of its con­tent to die. The content is usually a colony of corpses of images which were once alive. That isrepparttar 142653 difference between ideas and vivid images. Ideas arerepparttar 142654 dead corpses of images which were once living and vivid.

In his mind,repparttar 142655 successful inventive genius forms vivid images of every part ofrepparttar 142656 machine which he is constructing. Be­fore it is made, he mentally sees each part separately, and all parts assembled and working together. After examining a new machine he is able at any time to re-image a picture ofrepparttar 142657 machine. He re-seesrepparttar 142658 image whenrepparttar 142659 physical object is no longer present. That is thinking in vivid images.

You look atrepparttar 142660 same machine; but, after leaving it, you are able "only to think about it." That is thinking in ideas. Vividness is a quality of mind which makes geniuses, and it can be developed. When you read "the iron is hot," you think ofrepparttar 142661 idea of heat. When you accidentally put your finger tip onrepparttar 142662 red hot iron, your mind thinks in vivid images of special heat, because an image isrepparttar 142663 immediate result of sense impressions. A vivid image is formed by sense impres­sions. So, you can develop vividness in thinking by use of your special senses-by use of all of them. There are more than five special senses. There are twelve. They are color, sound, smell, taste, balance, motion, direction, heat, cold, weight, tactility, and pressure. Images formed by using only a few senses may lead to mistakes. Vivid images formed by using allrepparttar 142664 senses are infallible.

Success begins by testing every factor of your plan by vivid sense images. That means testing what you plan to do by men­tal pictures formed by use of all ofrepparttar 142665 senses. If you are testing a thing, userepparttar 142666 special senses themselves. If you are test­ing plans or propositions, userepparttar 142667 sense images.
