Your GA whispers in your ear all the time. The trick is to become more AWARE, so that when a thought comes to you to do something, perhaps that you hadnít thought about, you RECOGNIZE its origin. Requesting MBOís all the time heightens this awareness, as you start to see events take place to bring you the MBO.
