My personal BS detector was honed by walking and living through some very messy times. Before I learned to trust my BS detector, I was full of fears, doubts and uncertainty that cost me time, money and faith in people.
Over the years I've come to realize that "The BS" - the fears, uncertainties and doubts that try to grip us and rob us of our zest for life - had a much better chance of affecting me when I was cruising along on autopilot.
I realized that when I was passionate about things, and had a strong sense of purpose a mission I was much more immune to the siren song of "The BS".
So, what about you? Are you on autopilot or on a mission?
