Just like Pinocchio, in the famous Disney movie, we all have our own version of a "Jiminy Cricket" ? an inner voice that represents our conscience and distinguishes right from wrong.Some people call it a "gut feeling", some people see it as God or another force speaking to them and some label it as intuition.When faced with a decision, you will frequently have an impulse, or an immediate sense of which option to choose.
Most of us do not pay attention to this ? we fear the consequences of being impulsive without "thinking things through".Thinking things through, however, can lead to a state called, "paralysis by analysis". This, often crippling, situation occurs when you find yourself unable to make a decision, telling yourself, "I just need one more piece of information to make the perfect choice." Only when you get that one piece of information, you decide you need one more piece of information, and the process continues.As an confident individual, you need to tune in to that immediate decision-making ability deep inside your self, and trust it. Then, when you are faced with decisions, crises or having to make tough calls, you don't have to go into "paralysis by analysis" or start on an extensive fact-finding effort.
Once you have done the work of developing this rapid decision making ability, you will be able to access it when you need it and trust yourself more. Your first decision, that intuition, is frequently your best decision..Steve Farmer is a leader in the field of Coaching.
