Human intuition is a tricky concept, especially when we are conditioned to ignore it and place our trust in only facts and critical thinking. But for those lucky individuals who know how and when to listen, great things become possible.
We are all familiar with the sensation of a sudden “gut feeling.” For some of us this can mean automatic impulsive decisions, and for others it can mean endless hours of overthinking. Whichever is the case, our intuition poses a powerful force and striking a balance within unlocks a sixth sense. Learning to control the impulse of intuition, listen to it, and link it together with critical thinking can lead us down a road of success. All it takes is a little practice.
