How do you feel?

It may seem that the way you feel depends on how things are going in your life and in the world in general. Yet the exact opposite is true.

The way things are going in your life depends on how you choose to feel. Your feelings are your most sincere expectations.

Every part of your life picks up on those expectations. Your thoughts, your actions, your words, and the results that come from them all take their cue from the way you feel.

Some people see a challenging situation and feel dismayed. Others will see the same exact situation and know that they can choose to feel energized and inspired.

Life does not arbitrarily impose itself on you. Rather, through your feelings, you select which of life’s many offerings you wish to accept.

How do you choose to feel about things? Whatever it is, that is the way your life will play out.

— Ralph Marston
