THE POWER OF INTUITION & INITIATIVE
Decision-making ingredients that build the ambition and
intuition needed to make your own luck.
YOUR LIFE IS TALKING TO YOU, BE WILLING TO LISTEN AND TAKE THE INITIATIVE TO CHANGE DIRECTION WHEN NEEDED
There's a part of you that knows the answers to every question that you ask yourself. When we can learn to pay attention to how our life has unfolded and the subtle feelings in our body as it relates to our life decisions, we begin to notice the nudges directing us toward a different path.
Intuition, is your inner prompting that starts off as a whisper and can evolve into a push or shove if ignored. If intuition is ignored for too long, life can knock us out of the game -- make us sick, lose a job, break down our relationships or completely throw our lives off course.
INGREDIENTS FOR LUCK
1/4 - KNOW LIFE IS ALWAYS WORKING FOR YOU
1/4 - ASK "WHY"? - DURING THE TIMES YOU FALL
1/4 - TAKE ACTION AT THE RIGHT TIME
1/4 - MAKE DECISIONS THAT MATCH YOUR CORE VALUES
Intuition can be practiced and used to bring a type of unexpected harmony, happiness and passion into your life. When you learn to trust and go with that inner voice, outsiders assume you are just lucky. What others aren't aware of were the guts you had to put your life under a magnifying glass, listen, and follow instructions.
When you show young kids how to listen to their internal GPS, it takes them straight toward a road of success!

Great Day Academics
To Our Kids!
Great Day shows children how their initiative and "will to do good" for themselves and for others leads to a lucky life.
We teach children how to take responsibility for the actions they take and have the inner awareness to navigate through major life decisions.
When kids are conscious decision makers who can hear their intuition, they become more enthusiastic about where they are headed. Paying attention to intuition is a fail-safe way to ensure children grow up with the ambition to follow their own dreams rather than the desires of someone else.
As a result, they have respect for their learning process- knowing that their current schooling and home situation is a stepping stone to greater success.
KIDS WHO LISTEN TO INTUITION,
MAKE GREAT DECISIONS
"YOU MAY NOT HAVE CONTROL OF THE LEVEL OF TALENT YOU'VE BEEN GIVEN OR THE NATURE OF YOUR GIFT. WHAT YOU CAN CONTROL IS YOUR SELF-MOTIVATION & AMOUNT OF EFFORT YOU PUT IN THAT WILL LEAD TO LUCK"
-Inspired by Steven Pressfield
Your gut feeling is an actual subtle physiological reaction that occurs in your body and carries signals to your brain. Your gut, also known as the gastrointestinal tract is loaded with bacteria which form a complex neural network called the "enteric nervous system" - sometimes referred to as the "2nd brain".
Things like body temperature change, breathlessness, heart rate and perspiration are your body's response to those cues in your gut when faced with big decisions.
A recent decision-making gut study looked at two different groups of adults who were asked to purchase a new car. The group of adults who were asked to make a quick intuitive decision about their car purchase were later on found to be satisfied with their purchase 60% of the time. The car buyers who had an extended amount of time to use logic and research to think carefully about their decision to buy, were later found to be happy with their purchase only 25% of the time.
YOU MAKE YOUR OWN LUCK WHEN YOU TRUST THAT THE PATH YOU ARE ON IS THE BEST PATH FOR YOU YET PREPARE FOR THE AMOUNT OF SUCCESS YOU WANT
Indecision was my middle name and not trusting my intuition has led to some very low points in my career and family life. Learning to following my intuition and taking the initiative to reroute my life direction has led me to some truly satisfying places. Listening to what my inner voice says when it disagrees with my reasoning mind was no easy task for a chronic over-thinker like myself. However, once I learned how to be more honest with what I want and combat the inevitable, steady stream of resistance that can cut you down when you make ambitious choices, life feels more harmonious. With intuition and initiative in my tool belt, an ever present knowing has developed that makes me more confident and trusting of how good things, people and situations are drawn to me in the luckiest of ways.
This too, is my wish for you!
