He did it again – my stockbroker. He rolled a ten-bagger into my lap. That means the stock he picked for me went up x10. Then he had me sell just before it started its decline. I bought low and sold high. Or rather he did.

Making me (and him) that kind of money isn’t what I’d call “feminine intuition,” yet that’s another word it.

Thanks to the field of Emotional Intelligence, which broke down those qualities that bring us success and happiness in life (outside of our IQ), Intuition has become legitimate and mainstream. What took it so long?

Yes, a good stockbroker uses Intuition; if it were simply a matter of studying the fundamentals and following the rules, we’d all be rich, would we not?

Some “sixth sense” makes this guy good. His hobby is betting on the horses and he wins there too. Good instincts.

When I asked him how he did it, he said, “It's easy. Does someone have to tell you how to kiss a woman?”

Reminds of when they asked Babe Ruth how he hit homeruns, he said, “I like to.” (think about it)

Am I talking about Intuition that's some weird psychic ability? Not at all.

Not only can Intuition help you make money, it can help you stay safe – physically and emotionally. And it's something we all have. It’s just a matter of developing it.

Since I’m an EQ Coach, and train and certify EQ coaches, I’ve seen how developing your EQ can change your life.


Recently I traveled to Russia, and before I went I worked on my Intuition. [To find out more, read one of my ebooks (
http://www.webstrategies.cc/ebooklibrary.htm ) or take The EQ Foundation Course© or Intuition© ( http://www.susandunn.cc/courses.htm ). Then get some coaching.]

Anyway, the tour company had warned us about pickpockets and gypsies in Moscow and Saint Petersburg, the outbreaks of diphtheria, and the strong travel advisory to avoid all water not bottled or served on the ship.

Well, diphtheria gets my attention.

So here I am, on a 12 day River cruise, and I’m going to remember not to stick my toothbrush under the running water in the faucet at night?

Or remember where my waist pak is when I’m mashed in cheek-to-jowl with 50 tourists waiting for the Peacock Clock in the Hermitage to chime, a once in a lifetime event?

All that fun and excitement, my natural curiosity, the slipper decks every ship has, and a little jet lag … I figured I needed some help. So, I figured the emotionally intelligent thing to do would be to start working on my Intuition two weeks before I left.


Another practical application is on-the-job safety. There’s a company in the UK that trains people in high-risk occupations to stay safe using their intuition.

For instance, an engineer working in a nuclear plant, or an oil rigger, must be able to sense “change” and react fast. A hiss, a silence, a change in humidity or pressure, a funny sound, stillness – all these can mean death and must
be heeded.

Back here in the States, I just got back from a roadtrip to Lower Alabama. Great roads down there, and a hefty speed limit.

I was driving along when an old car pulled onto the highway in front of me and then stalled out. You know how thoughts go through your head – I remember thinking “If there’s someone on the left, we’re dead.”

In two seconds I’d braked the car, swerved to the left, righted the car, and was proceeding away from that dangerous driver. All thanks to my intuition.

When I reviewed the situation, anything else I would’ve done, I would’ve collided with something at 70 mph. Not a pretty picture.

In many situations you may have only seconds to react. THERE WILL BE NO TIME TO THINK.

That’s when a well-developed intuition and fast reacting can save your life. Give it a try!
