Resources - Article: Take the Intuitive Leap
by Phoenix (Lynn S. Marks) - The Messenger
Coach, Speaker, Author

What I want for each of you is to have “The Success Edge.” By that I simply mean “live the life you really want.” There are many strategies, keys, principles to get there; yet, it all starts with your willingness to go after it. People are so used to talking about goals and visions that they often overlook one very subtle strategy that is behind so many successes.

To really understand, grasp and own this strategy may take on your part a willingness to shift your belief system-what I call the “B.S.” You know, you learned many things about life as a child, and they were good when you were five. Now it is time to reorient yourself for what works today. It takes new habits, new visions and new thinking abilities for openness.

The key to having the success edge personally and professionally is “Taking the Intuitive Leap.” That is listening to your inner voice and acting on it as soon as you hear it. Not eventually, but now--In the Moment. Taking the intuitive leap is a learned ability that takes patience and practice. It means developing your inner awareness and trusting it, not second guessing yourself. Don’t worry about it. Don’t judge it. Act on your inner voice as soon as you become aware of it. It becomes easier when you come to learn and believe in your heart that the present is perfect, even when it doesn’t seem to be.


The inner voice goes by many names. Many great poets have written about it. You may call it a gut feeling or an inkling. Some speak of it as their heart, their soul, their intuition, their God-voice, as the Universe. It doesn’t matter what you call it, the point is that it is real. It is up to you to listen and act and act now.


I want you to remember the last time you had that little inkling. You know, that time you had that light-bulb go off, that instant flash of an idea or a feeling. Remember how it came as a bright light and seemed to quickly fade or spoke to you in an almost small and ever so soft voice. It is subtle. It becomes bigger as your life becomes more complete and as you become more in tune with it. When you had that flash of an idea, what did you do? Did you act on it or did you say something like “That’s not possible,” “They won’t go for that,” or “That’s a good idea, but it’s for someone else.” We often sabotage ourselves by telling ourself (and others) “It’s not possible.” That is a limiting thought. It’s time to shift your belief system from “That’s not possible.” to “Everything is possible!” There are no limits except the ones we put on ourselves. It’s not enough that somewhere we get this feeling, this gift if you will; you have to act on it. It won’t become reality unless you take the action.


R. Buckminister Fuller, developer of the geodesic dome, put it this way: “I call intuition cosmic fishing. You feel a nibble, then you’ve got to hook the fish.”

You’ve heard the saying “Success is 10 percent inspiration (translate that as intuition, the idea, that inkling) and 90 percent perspiration (or what you do with it).” And, each time you get this gift it is really your choice what you do with it. It’s a funny phenomenon. Have you noticed that the more you act on this gift the more gifts seem to come your way, almost magically. The reverse also holds true. The Universe seems to stop providing gifts when you aren’t able to notice them, acknowledge them and act on them.

Let me share just one example of the power of taking the intuitive leap. You may have heard of Ray Kroc, the founder of McDonalds. Back in 1960, he was impressed with how many burgers and milkshakes were sold at a barbecue parlor in San Bernardino, California owned by brothers Mac and Dick McDonald. Kroc had ideas for expansion. He checked with his experts. His attorneys said it was a bad deal; the brothers were asking too much, $2.7 million.

Kroc said, “I closed my office door, cussed up and down, threw things out of the window, called my lawyer back, and said: ‘Take it!’ I felt it in my funny bone it was a sure thing.”

Ray Kroc’s inner voice spoke to him and he listened and he acted on it and the rest is history, as they say. It’s important to notice the process. He had to cut out, overcome the naysayers - what I call society - the red light. Although well intended, they are stopping you. They are telling you what you should do, can’t do, and ought to do. He did some deep soul-searching and followed the green light, his intuition. He ultimately made his multi-million dollar decision based on a twitch in his body. Ray Kroc took the intuitive leap.

You too can take the intuitive leap. Be aware of your inner voice every day, every moment. It’s there speaking to you, ever so softly. It’s up to you to get so complete in your life that you not only hear this voice, but have the personal power to block the naysayers and act on it. It’s time to follow your own success. Your inner voice knows.
