When you are confronted with a decision where there is a fork in the road, it is obvious that the best decision is the one that is made using your intuition.
So, how do you know which road intuition is signaling you to take?
The way intuition lets you know is through signals called internal and external markers.
Internal markers are those signals that you actually feel. These can be as simple as a tightening of the chest, a nagging “voice”, and a flurry of others signals.
External markers are those signals in the environment you are in that your intuition wants you to pay attention to.
These signals are not only unique to you, but it is also unique to the situation you are in.
In some cases, you may find that you have the same signal for a number of situations.
For example, there are times when my intuition has me focus my vision on a person, place or object in the environment that I am in because this person, place or object is extremely relevant to the decision. Perhaps it is the expression on someone’s face, a place that gives me an exit route or an object that is moving in a certain direction that I need to pay attention to in that exact moment in time that will become important when making the decision I need to make.
In almost every situation, there are a combination of internal and external markers that you need to sense, and if you miss what they are, then you may be making a decision that your intuition is urging you NOT to make.
Going down this route is NOT ideal, and this is when problems start to happen.
A deeper education in internal and external markers, including understanding what specific markers you have based on the situations you have found yourself in, is done when you enroll in my free Intuition Fundamentals course.
So, getting back to how you make smarter decisions?
It is making sure that you are able to recognize all of the markers in a split second that will help you make the right decision to take the path that will lead you to the opportunity you were looking for.
