Your Intuition and Risk Taking

Written by Maria Flynn

Your intuition is a vital tool in your decision-making processes. Taking responsible risks is an important aspect to living a full, meaningful, and abundant lifestyle!

Responsible risk taking and decisions are often a combination of fact and intuitive thinking (internal wisdom or knowing). However, the evolution of search engines like Google and social media may have hindered your ability to open up and trust your intuition. The less you trust yourself, the less risks you take in your life lending to a lifestyle that’s finds reasons to settle for less.

The information age is tremendously beneficial for sure, but how much of it has eliminated your own natural ability to intuit? The instant access to information is good but not if it lends to over-analyzes (and analysis paralysis).

  • Have you virtually eliminated your internal and vast resource?
  • Do you trust more in outside resources over your own thoughts and ability to reason?

Restoring Your Intuition

You can restore and trust your intuition (that immediate nudge and feeling), before your (analytical) brain kicks in and starts navigating your life with stories of why “not” and formulating reasons to settle for less.

Be Willing To Fail!

Your effort to eliminate failure, is also eliminating your expansion and your growth. You’re Divinely designed to grow and outgrow your present state and circumstance. No exceptions. (If you’ve been following me for any period of time, then you’ve seen this consistent message from me).

To be the CEO of your life (because your life is YOUR BUSINESS), then you must accept that embracing failure and losing is part of your evolutionary process! Entrepreneur, multi-millionaire, and social media influencer, Gary Vaynerchuk, says that every single day he’s willing to lose! Indeed, life is positively more impactful and fulfilling trying to accomplish something meaningful over just giving up and settling for less.

Trusting your intuition and taking responsible risks will produce wins and fails. But here’s what I encourage you to remember…

You are both human and spiritual and you’re designed to integrate both sides to create an abundant life (I teach this practical approach in Your Energy Makeover). Continually squashing your spiritual and soulful side (intuitive feeling side) is reducing a very important part of who you are—and it’s shutting out the Universe (or God, Source… use whatever term is good for you) who supports your growth and expansion always and in all ways.

That Spiritual side of you is the one that can work WITH the Universe. For sure outcomes can be amazing for you! But also, sometimes trusting your intuition means you’ll travel down an unexpected path. It may not be one you like, but it will be one that holds valuable lessons for you that will support you in later days in much greater ways! These are lessons that can only come from failing. The Universe supports you!

Playing it safe and eliminating failure eliminates your ability to create a soulfully aligned and abundant lifestyle.

Take Small Risks Daily.

Embrace taking small risks daily and you’ll restore your self-confidence, self-esteem, and belief in yourself (and your own thoughts, feelings and reasoning). Just like any muscle you train at the gym, so can you train this mental muscle that’s inclusive of your emotional strength and stamina through small risks taken daily.

Small risks taken daily have NOTHING to do with small wins and instant gratification. (Read that sentence again).

Of course you want to win (and you will have wins), but the goal of taking risks daily is for the benefit and long-term of your life! Your fails through small risks will be jam-packed with information for you! What you learn will serve you very well!

Trust The Process.

One thing you can guarantee in your life is that challenge will happen. Life happens! If you can get through smaller challenges now, you’ll only be better prepared to work through bigger challenges later.

  • Risk getting turned down. Listen, if you don’t ask, you’ll never receive, right? Choosing safe and never asking also eliminates any chance of ever getting the YES you want, too!
  • Risk not being the smartest person in the room! If you want to level up your life, then you must level up who you surround yourself with, too. You’ll never know what you don’t know until you place yourself in a community of people who know more and who want to continue to learn more. (Remember: you’re designed to grow and outgrow).
  • Risk missing out and instant gratification to achieve something greater later. Delayed gratification is a success trait and an exercise in self-mastery.
  • Risk standing in your truth without having to over-explain yourself. For that matter, risk getting judged for it! Remember Maya Angelou’s quote, “When people show you who they really are, believe them.”

Boost Your Attractor Factor!

The Law of Attraction is always responding to your vibration, no exceptions (and you’re either engaging it on purpose with purpose or not). Your life is the sum of your habits and your habits hold an energetic frequency that the Universe responds to without fail.

The action of choosing to pay equal attention to your intuition and proactively taking daily small responsible risks is an action expanding your energetic potency! That’s right… I’m talking about your attractor factor!

The Universe hears a clear signal from you (your frequency) through your action that is not about the win or a loss in your risk taking—but a deeper desire for more positive, impactful, and meaningful living!

Here is where you expand your energetic potency and more naturally attract the meaningful and deeper relationships, the opportunities, and the experiences aligned with where you want to go.

Those small daily risks are investments in your future!

What do you want to experience in 1 year? 5 years? 10 years?

Whatever that is has everything to do with what you choose today and every day. It’s those small responsible daily risks that are also investments in your growth and in your ENERGETIC POTENCY (your attractor factor). Those investments are the training ground for who you must become so that you can position yourself to RECEIVE.
