We’re Quick to Throw Away Our Gut Instincts in Favor of Someone Else’s Advice

In: Confidence, Creating,

It’s easy to defer to the experts to tell you what to do.

There are parts of us that are always seeking that validation, that security, that assurance that what we are doing is “right.” It’s why you hire the business coach, follow the advice of the lawyer, and let the person with the title call the shots.

But the person with the title can only take you so far. Knowledge and experience aside, there’s always an inherent limitation that you always have to keep in mind, and that limitation is simple: they aren’t you. 

If you’re shitting your pants, not sure if you’re doing it right, then that might seem like a good thing. YOU DON’T WANT TO BE YOU! But the truth is, you’re still the #1 authority on your life, your business, your preferences, your brand, your signature, your style, and your work as a whole.

We’re quick to throw away our gut instincts in favor of someone else’s advice.

But it might be helpful to remember that we’re the ones who got us this far in the first place—and that probably counts for something.

In fact, it probably counts for far a lot more than you’re giving yourself credit for.

Nice Brands Finish Last

[x_blockquote type=”center”]I take it as an insult when somebody calls me The N Word: Nice.[/x_blockquote] Out of 100,000 adjectives in the English language, if the best you can come up with is nice, then I’m doing something wrong. It’s like spending Thanksgiving Day ripping out gizzards and mashing actual potatoes, only to be told that […]
