3 Secrets so You Can Reliably Access Your Intuition and Elevate Your Luck

Intuition saves someone from an explosion!

In a moment, the lamp would explode. The little seven-year-old girl didn’t know that, but she felt something in her chest. It told her, “Get out of here!” So, she ran from the kitchen to the patio.

In the next moments, the explosion of the camping lamp caused a fire in the kitchen which sent her brother, with third-degree burns, to the hospital.

As a seven-year-old, she found that her thoughts didn’t count to her family. She only received a message in a brief time before the explosion. She didn’t know what was going to happen. She only received a cryptic warning.

This was the experience of a friend of mine. Decades later, she looked on that instant as a moment when her intuition had warned her.

Here are three insights:

1. Find out where in your body your intuition speaks to you.

My friend found that her intuition speaks to her in a particular location in her chest. Many of us feel our intuition talk to us in our gut. Others notice that they feel tension in their shoulders or neck.

How can you reliably access our intuition? An important step is to locate, in your body, where your intuitive impressions show up.

Where do you feel the intuitive impressions in your body?

When you understand exactly how your body interfaces with your intuition, you have more opportunities. You can benefit from the warnings or even the positive invitations that your intuition can give you.

2. Provide your intuition enough time to speak to you.

Do you deal with situations that require you to bring creative solutions?

I relate to this because I’m involved in many creative projects: Feature films, my novels and nonfiction books, book covers, online courses and more.

Have you found yourself wanting an immediate intuitive impression? Do you want an intuitive answer now?

Perhaps, you noticed that your intuitive impression just shows up “when it wants to.”

Make sure to take a break or go for a walk or get an nap or night’s sleep — so you can come back and look at a situation with fresh eyes.

How will you take a break and give time for your intuitive impressions to show up?

3. Design your life so that you allow intuition to elevate your luck.

I’ve learned that intuition operates like a friend. If your friend offers you some guidance and you take action with it, your friend will more likely offer you more guidance.

Intuition can be like a friend who does not tell you the whole story. Your intuition will tell you what Steps 1, 2, and 3 are. Still, you really want to know the whole journey up to Step 20. But once you arrive on Step 3, then your intuition reveals Steps 4, 5, and 6. It just keeps on flowing along. It’s as if you’re climbing up a mountain. The higher you rise, the more you can see.

The connection of your intuition to luck exists in choosing the places where you can be lucky.

Do you rely on intuition to guide you to make decisions that put you in the right place for a lucky break?

Recently, I have pulled together so many insights that I’ve learned about luck from my mentors and life experiences directing feature films and traveling the world, speaking to various audiences. Additionally, I added material that is timeless wisdom plus scientific observations into an online course called Darkest Secrets to Improve Your Luck.

To really improve your luck, warm up your relationships.

I noticed that to really improve your luck you need to warm up your relationships. Then, people want to see you win, and they want to offer you more opportunities.

Here’s where intuition comes into this process. Your intuition can guide your decisions.

Your intuition can guide you as to when to call a new friend or contact. I made sure to include in my online course topics: “Make Great Decisions When Under Risk” and “Secret of Success: Your Art of Asking” — and much more.

With warm relationships, you experience great luck.

When you make time and space for your intuition to communicate with you, you open the door to truly improving your luck.

Many great moments to you.

Want Extraordinary Success? 3 Ways to Unleash Your Hidden Powers

Author Tom Marcoux went to Mayan ruins to see what his characters would see in his novel.

Standing at Mayan ruins with a video camera on me, I realized I was stuck. I had no words. I had no title for the book that I was supposed to describe at this extraordinary location.

With little time to get this video recorded, I felt baffled and even embarrassed. I paused for a moment and took in several deep breaths. This helped me connect and become flexible. I then realized that I could just refer to “the book.” Later, after more reflection and testing, I could come up with the name of the book. At that point, I’d have the title of the book superimposed on the video image.

Learn to Release Yourself from Limited Thinking and a “Fixed Identity”

When I searched for a solution while on camera at the Mayan ruins, I needed to have real flexibility. I’ve learned that getting stuck and having a focus on looking good or hanging onto an old, fixed identity can stand in the way. You can put up a barrier to your new chapter of life. You may hold yourself back from unprecedented success.

Additionally, when we release ourselves from limiting beliefs, we can radiate enthusiasm that makes us attractive to people and opportunities.

With clients, I use the word “FUN” as part of bringing these ideas to their attention.

F — Free yourself from a fixed identity
U — Uncover “Creative Energy”
N — Name 3 Focal Points

1. Free yourself from a fixed identity

Have you noticed that life is a series of chapters? Some of us get to the end of a chapter, and we experience a bad surprise. For example, when my father stopped running marathons, he lost a huge part of his identity. From that moment forward, he became truly bitter. He was lost without his identity as a marathon runner.

Tom Marcoux speaking on “Your Secret Charisma” in New Zealand. Tom’s “Your Secret Charisma” course is on Udemy.

I’ve been fortunate to have a series of experiences like having different lifetimes. I’ve been a feature film director, lead singer of a band, song composer, educator, professional speaker from New York to New Zealand (including Thailand, Silicon Valley, Calif. and more).

It helped when I let go of a fixed idea that I was only a feature film director. I realized that I’m a communicator in various media. I learned to step forward with courage — into the unknown.

What opportunities are in front of you that are new and different? Do you need to step forward with a bit of courage?

2. Uncover “Creative Energy”

One of my mentors said that people get caught up with “who they are” and become overly protective of that “who.”

Carol Dweck talks about having the fixed mindset and how young people who are told that they are talented start to limit their actions. These fearful young people want to avoid proving themselves “untalented” in some area. So, they avoid taking appropriate risks.

On the other hand, if you think of yourself as “Creative Energy,” then you have no particular fixed identity to protect. You can try something creative like songwriting and think of it as an experiment. Perhaps, you can go from songwriting to screenwriting. Maybe, you’ll find that you’re more adept at screenwriting than you were at songwriting. But you develop your creative skills all along the way. You free yourself of holding onto a fixed idea like “songwriter.” You just look on yourself as Creative Energy.

What possible creative things can you experiment with now?

3. Name 3 Focal Points

Have you been surprised by how much people who have no experience with something still push their opinions on others? These people make pronouncements of what a person should not do.

Some people proclaim: “You should specialize in only one thing.”

Instead, if you only focus on one thing, you might become too afraid to take appropriate risks with that one thing. I’ve learned about the Power of Identifying 3 Focal Points.

When you identify 3 Focal Points, you have more freedom. This goes hand-in-hand with having flexibility and letting go of a fixed identity.

Additionally, having 3 Focal Points helps you avoid being scattered. Still, you’ll have more opportunities. Sometimes, the 3 Focal Points will combine in ways you had no idea might happen.

What 3 Focal Points seem to be attractive to you at this moment and at this chapter in your life?

In summary, you’ll find more freedom when you take action related to this F.U.N. process. You may have more fun, which will make you more attractive. Why? Because people like to be around others who are full of enthusiasm and creativity. They want you to succeed, and they offer you opportunities.

Many great moments to you.

Use a Fresh Way to Triumph over Disaster

Tom Marcoux lands a jet ski in a truck’s flatbed for a feature film that Tom directed.

The stuntman on the jet ski attempted the “submarine trick” for a scene of a feature film I was directing. He wiped out amid a huge splash. He was unable to dive the jet ski underwater and then pop up like a dolphin.

We were running out of time to film the scene because we were “burning daylight.” That means the daylight was waning.

I had a choice: Send him back out to re-attempt the stunt or use an “editing trick.”

Using my mind’s eye, I edited the scene in my imagination. I had my answer. I said, “Go out there and make a huge splash like you’re recovering from the submarine stunt.” He did the motion.

In the final cut of the movie, the first shot is the stuntman causes his jet ski to dive underwater, and the second shot is a closeup of the lead actor emerging from the waves. The sequence ends with the big splash that simulates that the character successfully completed the submarine trick.

When the stuntman failed to complete the submarine trick, it felt like a disaster.

Fortunately, using my intuition and imagination, I solved the problem.

My point is: It may look like a disaster, but with imagination you can find your solution.

Here’s an example. Some time ago, I hired someone to edit a writing project for me. When I saw the mistakes left in the project, I was shocked. When you create a written work, the whole point is to serve the reader. This so-called editor did not watch my back.

I needed to find someone I could trust to help me.

Looking for a solution, I next talked with Daniel, a friend, who complained, “I don’t get relevant feedback from my writing group.”

I paused and let my imagination flow toward originating a new solution.

I innovated something I call “5 for 5.”

Later, I described “5 for 5” in this post I placed on Facebook:

#LeverageTip: Here’s a way to share kindness. I call it “5 for 5.” You read something you’re working on — for 5 minutes, and your friend gives helpful comments. Then, your friend reads something of their own for 5 minutes, and you provide supportive comments. (I just went through 800 pages with 15 friends in this manner … in 54 days). I helped people with LinkedIn profiles, sales emails, web pages, first novels and more. This deepens friendships and creates empowering energy, momentum and progress. many blessings

What difficulty are you facing?

Can you do something like “5 for 5,” in which you offer support and receive support, too?

Recently, I watched the series Into the Unknown: Making of Frozen 2. I noted that even on the highest levels of film production, team members face huge unknowns and problems. The solution requires caring people teaming up and supporting each other as they stretch and innovate solutions.

Now you have another tool you can use: “5 for 5.”

May your projects go well.

Find Your Strength in This Time of Crisis

A key to a better life — in a 39-year-old book.

I didn’t know that the key to a better life was in the 39-year-old book in my hand. I had not seen this book in two decades. I only found it because during the coronavirus crisis, I was dealing with some materials in storage.

Opening the book at random, I discovered an idea that has stayed with me. The book is Isaac Asimov on Science Fiction. I wondered what I might learn from viewing this author’s words. I found his story about a woman named Peg, who was the wife of the famed science fiction editor John W. Campbell, Jr.

John Campbell and Isaac Asimov fell into a big argument. Their dispute escalated and became worse. They even wrote letters that hammered at each other.

Peg read the letters from both men and told them, “Any more and the friendship will be destroyed, and this argument is not worth a friendship.” John Campbell and Isaac Asimov dropped their argument and talked about other things. The friendship was saved.

Years later, John Campbell died. Asimov ended his chapter of the book with: “Then [Peg] died, too, in 1979. But I remember her.”

“But I remember her.”

For weeks, this phrase resonated in my mind like the chorus of a song.

Why did Asimov remember Peg? She was the peacemaker who saved his friendship with her husband, John.

My question for you is: How will you be remembered? As a friend? As a peacemaker — as someone who did the most important things? Or someone who got caught up in small things in anger and in arguments?

Recently, a friend on Facebook invited people to describe themselves in Three Words.

This brings us back to Peg and “But I remember her.”

I think of Peg as peacemaker, friend, memorable.

What is most important to you?

Have you noticed that our energy is being drained by the coronavirus crisis and upheaval throughout the world?

To stay strong, do something each day that nurtures your spirit and your well-being. Then, you’ll have the energy to have a positive impact on people and the world around you.

Strength rises in focus.

How would you describe yourself in three words?

… and how would people, who are important to you, describe you in three words?
