And gives us confidence to make decisions.
And clouds our instinct.
In Malcolm Gladwell’s Blink he discusses our cognitive ability to immediately know the truth to its core.
I agree that we possess this innate ability.
We just need to be in touch with it and accept it.
We question our subconscious, when we should really listen to it.
When we interact, negotiate, represent and engage with others, (on every level) being certain about their intent is vital.
And making sure they understand ours is even more critical.
Socially – we become connected.
Emotionally – we become empathetic.
Professionally – we become respected.
This instinct is at the heart of being honest!
And being honest is key to having people know you, trust you and believe in you.
It pays to “let go” and follow our instinct!
