EP58: Trusting Your Gut: Intuition vs. Logic in Life’s Pivotal Choices with Meaghan Pierce

You’ve heard it before: Trust your gut.

But if it were that simple, we’d never question another decision we made, ever again.

How do you tell the difference between your intuition and fear?
Where is the line between logic and intuitive knowing?
What role do they play in decision-making?
How do you learn to listen to your gut when you’ve spent your whole life ignoring it for the voice in your head?

Meaghan Pierce, author and entrepreneur, joins us to talk about all things intuition and how she learned to trust her own when it came to making pretty big leaps in her life. Together, we dissect the role of intuition in life’s “fork in the road” moments.

We touch on the shadow side of relentless self-improvement, where the pursuit of goals can morph into a cycle of never feeling quite “good enough”, and we critically examine the line between life coaching and therapy, offering insights that challenge the status quo and encourage a deeper, more nuanced approach to personal growth.

And when it comes to decision-making, we uncover the crucial role of a supportive community and the power of discernment in choosing whom to confide in. Drawing from our collective experiences, we highlight the significance of having cheerleaders who bolster our intuition and support our dreams, even when faced with skepticism.

If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about what it actually looks like to trust your gut, you won’t want to miss this honest reflection on trusting the compass of your inner voice and the courage to follow it with unwavering conviction.

Quotes:

Let people support you in the way they are capable and not the way you expect.

“And so, if you tell somebody something who is not on a level where they can separate themselves from your situation, they’re going to automatically filter the situation through what they would do themselves.

In a world where we are constantly bombarded with messages about what is good for us, what is best, what is right, what is perfect, what is ideal, it’s very difficult to trust something that may or may not be telling you the opposite of those messages.
