How to Get Out of Your Own Way and Follow Your Intuition

If you’re like most of us, you’ve probably been told to ‘trust your gut’ or ‘follow your intuition’. But what does that really mean? The truth is, trusting your intuition can be one of the best decisions you ever make in life. It requires courage and a willingness to take risks, but the rewards can be great. Let’s discuss how to get out of your own way and trust your instincts.

Understand Yourself
The first step in getting out of your own way is understanding yourself. What makes you feel comfortable? What makes you feel uncomfortable? Are there certain things that trigger a certain reaction in you? Knowing yourself will help you get a better grip on why you think and act the way you do. Spend some time reflecting on yourself and consider journaling as a way to understand yourself better.

Listen To Your Intuition
Trust can only be earned over time, so it's important to listen carefully when your intuition speaks up. Pay attention to those feelings inside—is something telling you to go for it or walk away? Is something feeling off? Take notice and pay attention because this is where real growth begins. Listening to your intuition requires practice and patience, but with enough focus and determination, it will become easier over time.

Make A Decision And Act On It
Once you have identified what feels right for you, act on it with confidence. Making decisions from a place of trust will help strengthen the bond between yourself and your intuition so that future decisions become easier without needing as much thought or hesitation as before. Acting on what feels right for you also helps build confidence in both yourself and others, which is invaluable in any situation whether professional or personal.

Making decisions based on our instincts takes courage but can lead us down paths we never could have imagined before. Through understanding ourselves better, listening carefully when our intuitions speak up, and acting with confidence when we have made a decision; we are able to get out of our own way and trust our instincts more fully than ever before! With practice comes progress; so don’t give up if at first it doesn't come easy – keep working at it until that inner voice becomes second nature!

Good luck, you've got this!
