Intuition is like a muscle. You develop it the more you use it.

One of the worst things in life is indecision and confusion. It plagues everybody. But confusion is sometimes a blessing when it stops you from making a move, because sometimes you're not supposed to make a move.

I say to people, "You don't walk down stairs blindfolded, you don't drive a car blindfolded—why would you want to make massive life-changing decisions when you can't see what you're doing? You have to wait for clarity." So to me, confusion can be a kind of intuition: your body's way of saying, don't do anything right now—just go with the flow and the answer will come.

I've given lots of talks, to all kinds of groups, and sometimes you'll get people—usually men—who will say, "I think it's a load of old rubbish." And I'll say, "Well, that's your belief. I'm not here to change your belief."

The most important thing is just to trust it. Trust in your gut. Trust that first feeling you feel about something. Because that very first feeling is usually the right one.
