I’m a big fan of feeling good.
I’ll go so far as to state my belief that feeling good is an essential if not the main key to achieving what you want in life – be that security, happiness, love, money, or success.
When you feel good, you magnetise more good things to come your way. Your focus also tends to be more on opportunities, ideas, people, places, and situations that ‘feed’ those good feelings.
This is when you set off a chain reaction – linking one good feeling to the next good feeling, one good idea to the next good idea, and one good opportunity to the next good opportunity, doors and paths seem to open up that didn’t even exist or occur to you before
Until before you know it and as if by sheer luck, the things you desire in life are suddenly before you.
Here’s a formula I use that helps me to feel good every day (or close enough :)).
I ‘reverse-engineer’ my dreams.
I start at the ‘outcome’
I work on being crystal clear on what I want in the future. So clear in fact that the dream even has colour, sounds and yes even smells 😅
… i.e when I dream of working remotely on a beach paradise location? I smell the salt of the ocean, feel the warm breeze, and see the amazingly clear blue of the water reflected by the great blue cloudless sky; I experience every sensation in my dreams.
Then I work my way backwards to where I am now in the present…firstly being grateful for everything I already have…and then thinking of ‘small’ do-able things I can do, to make that dream a reality… and I simply keep doing those things…every-single-day.
They’re small enough that they are absolutely achievable – So it could be simple things like putting up a picture of the beach on my vision board, learning more about the island I want to go to, or speaking to people who already live the kind of lifestyle I want, and learning and applying how they did it.
Anything and everything I do and complete on a daily basis towards that dream?… I count it as a ‘success” for that day, no matter how small the ‘win.
This is how I nurture and maintain a mindset of feeling good, being optimistic and ‘certain’ that I’m on my way towards living that dream someday very soon.
