“Actions guided by instinct rarely lead us astray.” #bgdtcoaching.
When guided by instinct, the natural ability or skill we have within us, actions invariably flow well and indeed we are rarely led astray. Yet although we have the possibility of being guided by instinct at any moment, it might be interesting to query how often we actually make use if this resource.
Frequently we seem to be swayed more by external elements such as advertisements, society made up by the nameless ‘others’, and the like. Even the desire for approval from loved ones, friends and/or colleagues may mean we are less guided by instinct than is probably good for us.
However we look at the question, when we are guided by instinct we are attuned to ourselves. By ignoring our instinct, and we intuitively know when we are going against ourselves, we are giving away control of our life.
Or maybe not. To join the conversation here and share your input on the issue of being guided by instinct, please leave a comment below.
