Napoleon Hill once said: “One must marry one’s feelings to one’s beliefs and ideas. That is probably the only way to achieve a measure of harmony in one’s life.”
So get your feelings hitched to your beliefs!
But how do you marry your feelings to your beliefs and ideas if you don’t acknowledge and give attention to your feelings?
As you are well aware, I suggest paying close attention to your feelings…and get yourself feeling really good.
If you feel good, that means you’re thinking about what you want…you are thinking faithfully and you are full of belief.
If you feel bad, look at what you’re thinking!
You are absolutely thinking along the lines of doubt, fear, or worry about something. Those are the opposite of belief.
If you feel bad, that is your indicator that you are not thinking faithfully.
Faith and belief always feel good.
When you notice you feel bad, change your thoughts.
As you know, affirmations are a great way to do that.
Rhonda Byrne in her fantastic book The Secret said, “Ask once, believe you have received, and all you have to do to receive is feel good. If you are feeling good, it is because you are thinking good thoughts.”
You can tell if you believe by how you feel.
Rhonda Byrne also said, “Everything you see and experience in this world is effect, and that includes your feelings. The cause is always your thoughts.”
When I finally grasped that concept — that I could always control my feelings by changing my thoughts — it changed my entire experience in life.
What does life consist of if not our feelings?
Isn’t how you feel all that really matters at the end of the day?
Or the start of the day?
Or at any point in the day?
