The power of feelings

You can feel good for no reason at all. In fact, you can choose to feel any way you wish at any time and in any situation.

Whatever you desire, you desire because of the way you think it will make you feel. Whatever you avoid, you avoid because you don’t wish to experience the feelings that you assume it will bring.

Yet the fact is that your feelings are not controlled by your circumstances. Those feelings are determined by how you choose to respond to various situations and events.

Your feelings in any moment are yours to choose. You can choose to feel the wonderful reality of your most treasured dreams long before those dreams have been fully achieved.

And when you do, you put yourself in a positive, powerful place from which you can surely make those dreams real. When you feel good for no reason, you immediately begin to create the reasons.

Choose each day to feel the way you wish to feel, no matter what is going on around you. And let your feelings pull you toward the fulfillment of your destiny.

— Ralph Marston
