It’s not easy to know at first glance whether the person in front of you is reliable or of high quality. In the majority of cases, our intuition is at rest or simply poorly advised. With this in mind, it’s time to apply the 3% rule.
The 3% Rule
A simple rule, it states that you should only decide to befriend someone or make important choices 3% of the time. The rest of the time, you’re better off waiting or doing some inner work (to improve your intuition, for example, see below). You should only decide when you’re absolutely sure, which happens in only 3% of cases on average.
[Contradiction of the rule: Some people – notably Alex Hormozi – suggest the opposite. According to them, a decision is important because it’s difficult to make. It is the riskiest and ultimately most uncertain decisions that potentially lead to the greatest successes, but also to the greatest disasters].
Our Intuition Doesn’t Always Work
There are many reasons why our intuition doesn’t work. You see, our intuition is a kind of second brain. It gathers information from all sides: mainly from our senses, and puts it into perspective with our experience. When we’re plunged into a totally new environment, it’s not easy to call on our intuition because it can’t be based on past circumstances. That’s why it’s a good idea to travel and have many different experiences. These will help us to build up new databases on which we can draw to develop our intuitive diagnoses.
Gathering New Information Unconsciously
There are many things you can do to make progress in the field of intuition. Here’s a non-exhaustive list of things you can do to develop your intuition:
– develop your multiple intelligence (kinesthetic, musical, visual-spatial, etc.); i.e. play sports, musical instruments, etc.
– get more sleep
Put Your Unconscious To Work
Your unconscious is at work all the time. Yet it’s often scorned because people ignore its power. Conscious work is important, but it shouldn’t be consciously associated with unconscious work. Great champions, artists and scientists know this. What makes the difference between what is good and what is excellent is deliberate unconscious work.
Your Intuition Is GoneRestore The Importance Of Your Intuition
Conversely, there are many reasons why our intuition may have disappeared. In fact, it doesn’t really disappear, but it becomes muted. When you seek distraction in one way or another, you’re running away from your intuition. There are many different ways to run away from your intuition. Here are a few examples:
– Escape in disguise:
– Traditional distractions: sports, TV shows, video games, etc.
– Some people use work as a way of hiding from the central issues in their lives. Their work offers them a wonderful reason and social recognition at the same time. The problem is that deep down, they know there’s something missing, but they prefer to wear the mask of the compulsive worker, which is much more comfortable for them (only in the short term).
Restore the importance of your intuition
If you become too accustomed to doing what you’re told, you’ll quickly start acting automatically. You need to break this bad habit and regain control of your life. You only have one life (and even if we believe in incarnation: you can’t live the same life twice), so you have to take care of it. There’s nothing worse than waking up one morning and realizing you’ve missed out on your life. Intuition is what will help you reconnect with your source.
What Is Your Source?
You were born for a specific purpose, your passage on earth was the fruit of a celestial wish. The problem is that once you’ve landed, you forget the divine purpose that brought you here in the first place. The purpose of life is to rediscover this mission. Many people miss out on their lives and never discover why they are here.
True Knowledge Is Never Without Consequences
Someone who has truly come to know their source will act differently from others. There is no true knowledge without true change. If you deplore the fact that you haven’t yet been able to change your way of being and your actions, it’s first and foremost because you haven’t done enough work in the quest for your coming to earth. If you’d really had a revelation, you’d have changed decisively.
What To Remember?
– Your intuition is precious and should be cultivated.
– You should only make decisions 3 percent of the time, when “all the stars are aligned”, i.e. when you’re firmly convinced that you’re making the right decision.
– You should make it a priority to find your mission on earth, and that means developing your intuition.
