Whatever you believe with feeling becomes your reality.
Have you ever found yourself fighting a tempting feeling, giving it everything youve got to keep from giving in to that urge to do something you know you shouldnt do? Of course you have; in fact, we all have from time to time. At these moments of truth, your level of self discipline determines which path youll take.
The persuasive pull of temptation can prove to be too great if you cannot consistently summon sufficient self-discipline to keep yourself headed in the right direction. In these instances, fighting the feeling can be a good thing; especially when those feelings are likely to do us more harm than good.
Seeing is believing, but feeling's the truth.
But what about those times when we fight the feeling to do those things that we desperately need to do, that we long to accomplish? You know what Im talking about here, dont you? Sure you do. Like those times when you know you need to do this or do that, but you also realize that the this or that is going to require you to roll up your sleeves and get to work. And getting to work may not seem like a pleasing prospect, especially when compared to lying on the couch or just goofing off.
So we allow the temptation to slack off to override our ardent desire to put our best to the test. Instead of passionately pursuing our dreams with every ounce of fervor and fire we can muster, we allow ourselves to languish in abject mediocrity, falling well short of our realizing our abundant God given potential. Is this the way you want to go through life; lying around and taking it easy, never showing the courage to reach out and go for the brass ring of life? Or would you prefer to make your life everything youve ever dreamed it could be and more?
Its up to you and your ability to take your feelings and out them into action.
I think one's feelings waste themselves in words; they ought all to be distilled into actions which bring results.
Sometimes the only discernible difference between succeeding and falling short lies in your ability to do whatever you know needs to be done whenever it needs doing regardless of whether you feel like doing it or not. Oh, I know that sure sounds like a lot of extra work and effort, but watching others thrive while you struggle to barely to survive isnt all its cracked up to be either, is it?
By developing the self discipline to get up and go and keep going through thick and thin you pave the pathway to a life filled with riches well beyond anything youve ever imagined. And getting up and going is not nearly as hard as you may believe. The secret to turning yourself on and keeping yourself revved at full throttle is as simple as counting to 3.
You can come to understand your purpose in life by slowing down and feeling your heart's desires.
The first step is to open up and FEEL your heart desires, to discover the wealth of ability that already lies buried within. Youll discover it is far easier to do those things you love to do than it is to force yourself to do something you dislike or disinterests you. If youll just slow down and step off of the merry-go-round of life for a few moments, taking the time to tune into your hearts desires, youll be amazed at what your heart will whisper in your ear.
It will help you tap into your unique gifts and talents. But feeling the feeling is not enough, you have to bring these feelings to life. Which leads us to the second step in the process of making your life everything it could be and should be: taking action today. Instead of allowing another precious day to erode into the past, why not turn the tables in your favor and put these invaluable assets to work for you right now, boldly forging your destiny on earth starting today?
The final piece of the puzzle is commitment. Once you get momentum moving in your favor, youve got to make certain that you dont stop no matter what. NO MATTER WHAT! Youve got to go with the flow that emanates from deep within you and keep moving towards the attainment of each and every dream you hold in your heart. NO MATTER WHAT! As Melba Colgrove said, Joy is the FEELING of grinning on the inside. When you give in to the feeling and start grinning on the inside, its a sure bet that youll be grinning from ear to ear on the outside as well.
The Bottom Line: Whenever and wherever the feeling grabs you, grab it and get to work.
