Whether it is our job or the sport we play, most of us take an Osmosis [unconscious absorption of ideas] approach over knowledge and Intuition to gain what Forbes magazine claims we are looking for; “flexibility, purposeful labor, and economic security.” Whether we know it or not, without knowledge and intuition, we actually drift farther and farther away from what we are looking for. Instead we become disgruntled; “nothing I do makes a difference, and everyone else gets all the credit.” Soon entitlement places a mental callous over our ability to become intuitive and the Johnny Paycheck’s song, “You Can Take This Job and Shove It,” become the words we live by!
Sure, we know how to do our job, and most do it quite well, but in many cases we have no idea or could care less, how what we do affects what we are looking for! We become emotional and ignore the key mental technique necessary to gain the flexibility and economic security we are looking for; Imagination.
Imagination provides the ability to come up with ideas and future possibilities to become Intuitive about Our Job! An understanding of HOW our job fits into the bigger scheme of things, not just for the company or the team, but for OURSELVES. In fact Jonas Salk, the American Medical Researcher who developed one of the first successful polio vaccines, stated, “Intuition will tell the thinking mind where to look next.” Intuition, based upon knowledge and expertise, will provide the necessary direction to find the flexibility and economic security we are looking for. All that is left, Become Intuitive!
To help, here are Seven (7) Things Intuitive People Do Differently according to Travis Bradberry, recognized author on emotional intelligence.
- They Slow down enough to hear their inner voice
- They Follow their Inner Voice
- They Observe and are Aware of what others are thinking and feeling
- They trust what their Inner Voice is telling them.
- They develop their creativity
- They trust their gut. The emotional battle between your reasoned mind and your feeling
- They analyze their dreams, and then implement them
Be patient, be knowledgeable, explore your imagination, but most of all, become intuitive!
