Trust Your Gut!

When you are faced with a situation in your career that just doesn’t feel right, trust your gut! Someone (or something) is telling you something.

I have had many situations in my career and throughout my life, where I was faced with an opportunity or maybe even in a relationship, where something didn’t feel right. Most likely because it wasn’t right and you knew it wasn’t right for you. In cases like this – go with your gut!

I am sure you’ve heard that old saying, “It’s too good to be true” well, most likely if a situation sounds that way it’s because it is “too good to be true” and something inside you is telling you it doesn’t feel right.

The problem people have when they’re faced with these situations is they tend to move forward – even though in their gut it didn’t feel right!

I have had candidate pass on an interview, turn down positions, and just back out because “something didn’t fee right” with the situation. I totally get it! I understand totally! More of us should learn how to trust our guts, especially today.

There are a lot of scam artists out there that will promise you the moon. They will say things like, “I promise we will get you a job” or “You will have stock within 90-days” or “We will make you a Vice President” and the list goes on. Sometimes these are legitimate opportunities and legitimate offers, but when something just doesn’t feel right to you – and you cannot explain why – trust your gut!

Again, throughout your career you will be faced with decisions about relocating, promotions, career changes, and if something doesn’t feel right with the situation – trust your gut! I hope this helps.

Good luck to you!
