I think one of the most overlooked and underrated human attributes is intuition. I have just recently been able to trust my intuition on a regular basis. I know that may sound weird, but previously my mind was my main decision maker. I am not saying that I no longer think. I am merely saying, if I get a feeling in my gut to call a certain person or to go into a store I pass by then I do; I still use my brain just as much. Eckhart Tolle tells us that if we experience feelings that are different from our thoughts, then the thought is the lie and the feeling is the truth. Everyone knows that if we over think something, generally when it comes time to execute, we either freeze up or mess up because our thoughts have prepared us for a different outcome.
Again this post is not telling you to stop thinking, it is telling you to trust your intuition more and to combine it with logical thought.
