Take Chances When They Feel Right

Sometimes when you feel like a chance is worth taking, you should just take the plunge.

It seems like certain people never think before they act. That can be a dangerous way to live. However, living life in an overly cautious manner can be the wrong way to go as well. You should try to find a balance between the two, and take chances occasionally, at least when it feels really right.

Planning and a positive attitude will take you very far in life, but unless you’re willing to take a bigger chance every once in a while, great successes may be out of your reach. Most people cannot afford to take big chances all the time, but through an occasional decision that’s a bit out of your norm, you can score big.

Whether it’s an investment that could result in a big payoff or a relationship choice with someone who isn’t normally your type, you may want to proceed with caution. But if it really feels like the right thing to do, your instincts may be right.

Of course you shouldn’t do anything that will put you or your family in danger, but if you want something badly, and it you think it will be worth the risk, you may be right.

Trust Your Instincts and Follow Your Heart

When something feels right, it probably is. Conversely, if something feels too good to be true, you would likely be best to run the other way.  Most people have some level of intuition, and eventually you need to learn to trust your instincts.

Of course, before making important decisions, you should always weigh your options and make as informed of a choice as possible. But once you’ve narrowed down the playing field, the choice you make often comes down to doing what your gut tells you.

At that point, it could be a huge mistake to let someone else’s uninformed opinion influence you. Although you should always consider a spouse’s point of view before doing something drastic, you probably know in your heart what’s right, and you have to remain true to yourself. If your spouse has the opposite feeling, discuss it further before acting. Going against either of your better judgments will more often than not result in regrets.

Trusting your instincts will usually help you to make the proper decisions in every part of your life. If you look deep within yourself, you know whether or not you can afford something you want, or whether you should end a relationship. Personally and professionally, your instincts will often lead you down the right path.
