Intuition is the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning. Intuition is a feeling we all have, but we fail to listen to it most of the time. It is the power of knowing; even though you do not know how and why you know, you know it. You can call it a hunch, gut feeling, sixth sense, inner knowing; no matter what you call it, we can all learn to trust our intuition/gut by listening to it more often. It is that voice that knows the answer before you even ask the question; it is that inner wisdom that guides and leads you to the right path. Your intuition is usually more important than your intellect because it knows best.
The late CEO of Apple Steve Jobs quipped in his 2008 Stanford University Commencement speech:
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
