Sabine Moreau, 67, only meant to go to Brussels from her home to pick up a friend from the train station - just 38 miles away. But instead she drove through six countries after her car navigation system went wrong.
Sabine crossed five borders with multiple-language traffic signs, but she didn't stop to question her sat-nav until she ended up 900 miles away in Zagreb, Croatia.
Although she stopped to refuel her car several times, Sabine Moreau didn't think her TomTom could be leading her in the wrong direction.
How can anyone be so out of touch with trusting their own intuition, and inner knowing, that they could continue to drive for two whole days, when the journey should have taken around an hour?
The internet is full of stories of others who followed the instructions of their car's GPS, and ignored their own wisdom. There's a street in the city where I live which leads down to the river, and it often floods very quickly. I would check the street after heavy rain, and when I could see it was clearly inaccessible, I stopped and turned the car round, and found an alternative route. It amazes me that people can keep driving through floods, and endanger their lives.
One woman had to be rescued by firefighters when her car was carried away by floodwater, and she was stranded in the vehicle for 30 minutes until fire crews were able to reach her. She was unable to see the edge of the road due to the high level of water.
Another story that could have had a tragic ending was when a paramedic ambulance crew went on a 400-mile round trip, when they were supposed to drive a patient to another hospital 12 miles away. Fortunately, the patient survived, but it shows that even professionals would rather believe a faulty sat-nav system rather than the evidence of their own eyes.
You have to develop an absolute trust in your own judgement to be able to look in a mirror and know how wrong this is.
This face looks completely unnatural, and would frighten most children if their plastic dolls were made like her. This poor woman has lost touch with reality, and her own ability to know what is healthy and attractive. She is also not surrounding herself with friends who will tell her the honest truth. If your friends tell you something looks good, but your intuition doesn't agree - always listen, and have the confidence to stick to what you trust, and know, feels right for you.
These are just two examples of many where not trusting yourself can lead you in the wrong direction. Don't believe something just because it's a machine - your own instinct has guided the survival of the human species for thousands of years - and machines often break down. And definitely don't believe someone with a knife in his hand who is going to change you from normal to a monster.
What you already have inside you will always be more valuable than any guidance system you can buy.
