What is the influence of intuition on entrepreneurship? Before we can answer that question, we need to define intuition. Mirriam-Webster defines it asthe power of knowing immediately and without conscious reasoning. And now I ask, is that it? Or is there more to intuition?
I personally believe that intuition is a gift from God and it is not something we have on our own.
Do you believe Jesus has called you to a purpose, to create a business to serve others? What about being successful and making money? Do you believe He wants that for you?
I mean really believe with all your heart.
You may think your business and your beliefs are separate, but your faith and beliefs do influence your business and the decisions you make.
Another question, do you believe that Jesus sent a helper? Someone to live inside you and teach you, guide you, and remind you of all Jesus taught while on earth?
And that intuition you feel - is that helper - that counselor - the Holy Spirit - the supernatural authority that helps you discern and make decisions when you ask Him to.
If you believe in Christ as your savior, you have the Holy Spirit living inside of you. Maybe you are new to faith or you haven't been taught much about the power of the Holy Spirit, then this may sound crazy. But this concept is biblically sound.
In a March 2022 Forbes article, Jazz Gill wrote about the influence of intuition on entrepreneurship. He shared this thought in the article: The true spirit of entrepreneurship is about intuition. It’s about creating and seizing opportunities, making the impossible possible. It’s about building strong relationships and networks to expand and execute on those opportunities.
I agree with Jazz Gill on this thought. But we may vary on the source of intuition and the true power it has on our entrepreneurial journies. The opportunities we create and seize are going to be much more impactful and profitable if we think of intuition as guidance from the Holy Spirit. How? Why? Because when we depend on the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we will be able to discern what is right for us, and we will stay aligned with our values, callings, and the purpose God has called us to. In addition, we'll be more likely to set pride aside and humbly follow God's will for us. The more aligned with God's purpose, the more successful we will be.
