We always hear “Trust your gut.” “Trust your instincts.” “Follow your heart.”. Sometimes when you trust your gut, it can hold you back from your destiny. Your limiting beliefs can make you feel sick to the stomach. So you begin to tell yourself that there’s usually a reason that you feel uneasy about something and you should just trust your gut. WRONG!
What if I told you that sick feeling in your stomach is just fear trying to sabotage your goals and dreams? What if I told you that you don’t have to listen to that crap? What if that feeling in your stomach isn’t a sign from God or the universe that something bad is inevitably going to happen if you pursue your passion? What then? Stop sabotaging yourself, and take a leap. Make shit happen because you only live once!
Fight Through the Fears
You have a choice. You can choose to listen to the negative self talk that is your “gut feeling”, or you can stand tall and boldly say “I am a badass! I KNOW my truth and my worth, and I CAN do this!” If you choose to listen to your gut and step back from everything you’ve worked so hard for (even if you’re in the early stages), you’ll never know what could have been.
Stop looking for validation from others that what you’re doing is okay. Do your thing! Make magic happen. And if you need words of validation and encouragement, join a fun group of entrepreneur-minded individuals. And when people are negative, non-receptive, unhelpful jerks, walk away. Surround yourself with positive people, and you will generally be a positive person.
Repeat after me:
Your gut will talk you out of your truth. Your gut will sabotage you. Your heart leads you on the path to self-satisfaction.
Don’t trust your gut….unless it’s telling you that a super creepy psycho stalker is after you. Then maybe listen to your gut! 😛
