Connect your emotions

The more emotionally connected you become to what you don’t want, the more of it you’ll have. And the more emotionally connected you become to what you do want in your life, the more of it you’ll have.

If you worry and fret and get upset over your problems, those problems will grow stronger as they feed on your intense emotional energy. But imagine what would happen if you took that energy away from your problems, and gave it to your most treasured desires.

Think about what you don’t want, but only long enough to figure out what you do want. Then give the power of your emotions over to the best of your positive possibilities. In your mind, feel what it will feel like when those goals become a reality. Experience the excitement, the satisfaction and the feeling of fulfillment.

Emotions feel powerful, and that’s because they are powerful. On a deep and undeniable level, they influence your physiology, your attitude, your actions and your effectiveness. Get the power of your emotions working in your favor by keeping them aligned with your most positive dreams, goals and desires.
