Thoughts and emotions are such a power couple.
They go everywhere together.
They are inseparable.
They are a match made in heaven.
But, just like any other relationship, if they don’t agree with each other, there is conflict.
That conflict may be the reason you’re not progressing in your life.
The things that you desire and want in life are all based in thought. You make conscious decisions about what you’d like to chase down, which requires a whole lot of thinking.
If you want a million dollars, you might have thoughts about why you’d want that much money, what you’d do with it, and how it would affect your life.
Your thinking cap is strapped on and ready to rock when you’re mapping out your goals.
But the energy around creating progress towards those goals is not born in thought, alone.
In order for your energy to ignite towards everything you’ve ever dreamed, your emotions have to be operating at the same wavelength.
If you don’t feel good or aligned with the thoughts that you’ve spent countless hours with, you’re dead in the water.
Going back to the example of having a million bucks, if you think that’s what you want, but feel negative about acquiring it…
…it’s never going to happen.
Maybe you feel like money is the root of all evil.
Maybe you feel like if money is to be made, you’d have to some shady things to get it.
Maybe you would feel guilty if you had so much and everyone in your life had pennies by comparison.
All that bad juju is going to cut your thought of being rich off at the knees.
You’ve got no shot.
This goes for all areas of your life.
If you think you want an amazing, loving, and long lasting relationship, but feel like you’re not worthy of the beauty that comes with it, you’ll be lonely forever.
If you think you want to healthy and fit, but feel like you’d have to starve yourself to make it happen, you’ll keep shoving Oreos in your mouth to avoid such a fate.
If you think you want that promotion, but feel like you’re not the best candidate for it, that corner office will never be yours.
So, thinking and contemplating what you want is a great first step in creating your version of success…
…but it means NOTHING if you don’t check into your emotions surrounding those goals.
If there is conflict between your thoughts and emotions, you’ll keep setting goals only to end up disappointed when you don’t achieve them.
Work on creating empowered emotions.
Understand that you are worth it.
Believe in your right to have everything you’ve ever dreamed of.
If you don’t, you’ll be stuck forever.
Your emotions, although strong and probably pervasive, are yours to choose.
Choose ones that align with what you think you want your life to be like.
When you do, the doors that you once thought were closed to you will fly off the hinges.
How do you feel about that?
See you next week,
