10 Things Highly Intuitive People Do Differently

10 Things Highly Intuitive People Do Differently
Intuition is challenging to define, despite the huge role it plays in our everyday lives. Steve Jobs called it, for instance, "more powerful than intellect." But however we put it into words, we all, well, intuitively know just what it is. Pretty much everyone has experienced a gut feeling -- that unconscious reasoning that propels us to do something without telling us why or how. "I define intuition as the subtle knowing without ever having any idea why you know it," Sophy Burnham, bestselling author of The Art of Intuition, tells The Huffington Post. Our intuition is always there, whether we're aware of it or not. Even when we're not at a fork in the road, wondering what to do and trying to hear that inner voice, our intuition is always there, always reading the situation, always trying to steer us the right way. Cognitive science is beginning to demystify the strong but sometimes inexplicable presence of unconscious reasoning in our lives and thought. They listen to that inner voice. Related:  crystamonro

Friendship: The Laws of Attraction My best friend, Olivia, and I met in a fiction-writing class many years ago. We bonded in an instant during the discussion of one poor soul's incomprehensible story involving a woman who'd undergone surgery and was described delicately as having lost "that which made her a woman." Suddenly, out of my mouth sprang my impersonation of Monty Python's Eric Idle, "Nudge, nudge, wink, wink, know what I mean?" When people are asked, "What gives meaning to your life?" Entering The Friendship Zone Years ago researchers conducted a study in which they followed the friendships in a single two-story apartment building. It's no surprise that bonds form between those who interact. But there's more: Self-disclosure characterizes the moment when a pair leaves the realm of buddyhood for the rarefied zone of true friendship. Reciprocity is key. Why Some (And Only Some) Friends Stick Once a friendship is established through self-disclosure and reciprocity, the glue that binds is intimacy.

Read This Before You Do Another Squat (Then Do Several, After) Squats are cool. Some of you probably disagree with that, but I’m going to do my best to convince you otherwise. For those already onboard the awesome-squat train, I’m about to make your squats safer, smarter and more effective through the geometry of that super-sexy skeleton of yours. You Are Designed for Squatting Squatting is not something you have to learn; it’s built into our physiology. Improving your squat mechanics is about removing the stuff that’s in the way of that collapse so that you can “fall” smoothly, allowing a predetermined set of tissues to store the acceleration due to gravity as eccentric muscular tension. A Good Squat Starts at Your Feet Your feet are not simply a couple bricks for wrapping in overpriced, brightly colored foam; they are an amazing combination of hardcore load-bearing structures and delicate sensory tissues. It doesn’t matter. “Blasphemer!” From this moment forward you can stop thinking about your knees while you squat. Getting Your Joints Organized

Things Exceptional People Say Every Day Creativity Quotes Creativity is allowing oneself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. SCOTT ADAMS, The Dilbert Principle Creativity represents a miraculous coming together of the uninhibited energy of the child with its apparent opposite and enemy, the sense of order imposed on ... the disciplined adult intelligence. NORMAN PODHORETZ, Playboy, Dec. 1968 The creative process is also the most terrifying part because you don't know exactly what's going to happen or where it is going to lead. STEPHEN COVEY, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People We are ourselves creations. JULIA CAMERON, Heart Steps The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.

ARTHUR KOESTLER, Drinkers of Infinity Creativity is the sudden cessation of stupidity. JIDDU KRISHNAMURTI, On Freedom

It could be you: Welcome to the dizzying world of instant wealth - Home News - UK The lottery doesn't pan out that way. The winner's journey from overdraft to overload is instant and jet-propelled, less like a roller coaster than one of those fairground towers that propels you into the sky in a matter of seconds. There's no time to anticipate, to adapt, to ease gradually into your new circumstances. You're still the same person, but you're also not. This discord is the motor of our fascination with the life of the new lottery winner. Reporters always ask the blinking recipient of great good fortune how he celebrated, knowing that the 48-hour or so gap between getting the news and getting the money affords the chance for an amusing bit of colour. We've always liked a gamble, it's true, as the Budget reminded us, with its promise of a tax cut for the nation's bingo fans. If anyone should have a sense of this, it's Andy Carter, who has the delightful job title of senior winners' adviser. Neil and Nicky do not appear to have had any qualms about going public.

Como las personas exitosas aprovechan las crisis en su vida | Foro Económico Mundial Existen tres tipos de crisis que cualquier ser humano puede experimentar a lo largo de su vida: la crisis de salud, la crisis de productividad y la crisis de tener fe en sí mismo. Según nuestro estudio El gen exitoso, existen grandes diferencias entre las personas exitosas y quienes no lo son tanto en el cómo observan y aprovechan las crisis en su vida. Las personas exitosas reciben y aceptan las crisis como algo importante para su crecimiento; aprovechan éstas para llevar a cabo una síntesis de los valores y virtudes que les sirven y aquello que tienen que desaprender y desechar, así como que guardan recuerdos de gratitud hacia estos momentos de crisis en lugar de recuerdos de dolor. Si rechazamos las crisis, éstas volverán en el futuro para darnos otra oportunidad de aprender lo necesario. Analicemos cada una de ellas. Crisis de salud: Es muy común en cualquier ser humano.
