When someone tells you to follow your gut when it comes to a situation, how do you know if what you feel is a gut feeling or simply fear? Many of us have put this ability off to the side and haven’t used it for quite some time, however, you may be using your instincts without knowing it.
Before we evolved as humans, we had no signs to tell us when danger was approaching we simply had to go with our instincts. Simply put, if danger was approaching the hair on our arms and neck would stand up telling us to run. However, today we rely on signs telling us when its’ time to cross the street safely, we rely on others to tell us when to buy that stock or not, or we rely on our loved ones to tell us what to or not do in many situations. But when you use your true instincts you make better decisions on how to handle any given situation, be it to run from danger or not sign the contract because something feels off.
