Many people are feeling the emotion of fear on a regular basis. A soaring unemployment rate of 9.7% has everyone worrying and wondering about the right risks to take in their daily lives. One of the most effective ways to thrive in this challenging period is by combining your intuition with analytical thinking to help you: recognize patterns, uncover hidden clues and make bold leaps of imagination.
The key is knowing the right questions to ask yourself and paying attention to the internal clues that come up when you answer them. A new book, Take the Risk, by Dr. Ben Carson, a world renown neurosurgeon, gives one of the most precise and detailed examples for helping you overcome fear.
This book details Dr. Carson’s Best/Worse Analysis formula as follows:
- What is the best thing that can happen if I do this?
- What is the worse thing that can happen if I do this?
- What is the best thing that can happen if I don’t do it?
- What is the worse thing that can happen if don’t do it?
You’re probably looking at the questions,shaking your head, and thinking, Will this work for me? Even if after answering the questions you don’t have a positive outcome, doing this exercise is like getting a front end alignment for your car.. After you do it, less of the bumps show up in your life journey. Your conscious mind and your intuition will combine to help you start to feel and think more clearly about your choices.
To thrive in this challenging marketplace, individuals and organizations must expand our well-developed high tech abilities with our conscious awareness on how to take risks. Our ability to use our intuition is the only thing that differentiates us from every other creature in the world.
