“Trust instinct to the end, even though you can give no reason.”― Ralph Waldo Emerson.
An instinct is an inborn pattern of behavior often responsive to specific stimuli. An instinct is something you don’t need to learn — it happens naturally, without you even thinking about it. Babies cry by instinct, and ducks follow their mother by instinct.
Animals and humans learn a lot of things from other animals and humans. But if there isn’t any learning involved, then the behavior is an instinct. Instincts come naturally, like a baby’s desire to feed. Some behaviors are a combination of instinct and learned behavior, like language. Others happen without any teaching at all, like the instinct to run when you see a big, hungry looking bear. When you see the word instinct, think natural response.
According to T. D Jakes; Once you have confidence in your instincts, you must never allow other people’s refusal to believe, or their data to refute,what you instinctively know is true.It’s incredible how much we let the influence and ideas of other people stop us from being ourselves or from doing what we know is true. We will never truly succeed in life both in our professional or personal journey if we do not stick to our own instincts and beliefs. If we continue to follow in the footsteps of others we will always be their shadow and we will never truly feel alive. Be true to yourself at all times, not matter how hard it may be to do so. Be strong and always have confidence in your own instincts.
In the words of David Gemmell, Fall of KIngs. He said,“Trust your instincts, and make judgements on what your heart tells you. The heart will not betray you.”
