Trust Your Heart.. it Knows Where to Go
“If it doesn’t feel right…don’t do it.” ~Oprah
I was watching an old video of Oprah speaking at Stanford’s commencement ceremony and during her speech she said the above quote.
during her speech she outlines different situations in her life where she had to trust her heart. She even goes as far as to say every right decision she has ever made came from trusting her heart.
Every wrong decision she has ever made came from not trusting it.
With that being said, a few weeks ago I was faced with a situation where I had to trust my own heart.
A few weeks ago I had a job offer with a marketing company. Having gone through the initial interviews I was feeling on top of the world. That feeling eventually came to a screeching halt.
As I was driving home from an all day interview (11 hours of walking around soliciting to businesses…not the type of marketing I want to do) I had this feeling in the pit of my stomach.
I wasn’t happy or excited about my new job.
Later that night, I did a lot of reflecting. My mind was saying just do the job because it’s a paycheck and my heart was saying don’t do it because you know you’ll be miserable and it doesn’t feel right.
Needless to say, I listened to my heart.
And I’m happy that I did.
The moral of the story
If something doesn’t feel right, don’t do it. Trust your heart and you won’t be steered wrong. Your heart somehow already knows what you want and what’s right so listen to it!
