The sixth sense is the creative imagination or better yet the receiving set where all ideas, plans, and thoughts flash into the mind.   Most likely it is the medium of contact between the finite mind and one’s individual intelligence.


In other words it is a mixture of both mental and spiritual.  Once an individual masters the principles of Hill’s book, the sixth sense   can warn one of dangers and obstacles coming.  It is essentially the guardian angel.  I like to refer it to gut instinct or hunch.   The desire, heart, mind, work, can move you along, but a hunch is what can get one through the obstacles and do things that can make them stand out from the others.


Many of the best athletes stand out because they have a hunch when they are under pressure and need to make a play.  Patrick Mahomes is not just a great quarterback; he is outstanding because he plays great when he is on the edge. He makes game changing plays when everything is on the line and things look grim.  I remember watching the Super Bowl last year. The Chiefs were   down by ten points or so and the game was over. Then Mahomes turned it on: two big passes, one sack and   two scores.  The Chiefs won!  He is a great athlete, but the way he took command of the game was incredible.  As said recently, I am not currently a big fan of the National Football League.  I, however, respect this young man for his dedication both on and of the field.


The same goes for business.  Henry Ford had desire, determination and knew how to delegate authority and duties.  He, as well had a hunch that the every family could utilize the automobile.   He saw the best way to achieve this was mass manufacturing and assembly of a plane Jane model, which became   the Model T.  Ray Crock was another example.  He saw the unique prep of the McDonald brother’s burger preparation.   He saw the value of franchising their system. Because of his hunch there are Golden Arches all over the world.


Network Marketing is no different.  Many companies have great products, great people, and training. There is an advised method and response to different questions, objections, and situations.

Following the suggested procedures will bring you some success. I, however, noticed that many of the leaders follow their gut or instincts.   They have a certain way with meeting new people and relating to them. 


They have mastered Hill’s previous twelve principles, work hard and work smart.  They, as well have developed the skill of working on a hunch.  Most know exactly what to say at the exact time needed. What’s interesting is many did not start out this way.

Orrin Woodward a successful Networker has spoken at our conferences a number of times.  He talked about the time he took public speaking in High School.  This was the only class he ever failed, because he would freeze up when talking in front of an audience.  He had the same issue when he received his MBA and he luckily got to redo his presentation. 


Would have never thought or known this if he had not shared it. He is a polished speaker with a wealth of knowledge.  Orrin has the sixth sense when he speaks.    I get the same feeling from Michael Dloughy. He has got the sixth sense in situations.


Besides reading, listening, and working hard, we have the privilege with our involvement in Mentoring For Free.  We stick around long enough are sixth sense will be finely tuned and fully operational.  Thank you Michael And Linda Dloughy for this program.   Thank you Rick Burnet for bringing me in. Thank you to everyone who participates on these weekly calls.


Proverbs chapter three, verses five through verse eight

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones."
