What is it that keeps you going? What is it that gives you fire in your stomach to start something new? What gets you so excited that you want to jump up and down?
A good question to ask always is: how are you feeling?
A pause from questioning, you may be wondering what’s with all the questions. Or, if you are a regular reader of my work you may think this is typical me. After all, I am inquisitive – the more polite form of nosey. There is nothing wrong with being interested, taking an interest in something, or gaining interest on your asset. I was inspired to write this after having an awesome conversation with a fellow coach. By the way it is good to talk to someone else sometimes about your vision: it being a friend, a mentor, or a coach. After the conversation I felt fired up. Feeling that I should be pushing forward. I then asked myself, how am I feeling at this moment? What are the emotions? I will share some here:
“Wow, life is wonderful with its endless possibilities”,
“Is that not freedom, doing what you love doing without any limits”’ and
“And I’m feeling good!”
You will notice with some of the ones that I shared there is a hint of excitement. I feel that there needs to be an element of excitement and passion in what you do. Often we forget about how we are feeling. This is important as you can have a possession, a career, a relationship and a lifestyle but how does it light up your soul?
What makes you feel full?
Often people wish for things: more money, a new car, a new love relationship and they can attract this into this life with ease. They may even feel a sense of euphoria at first, as they have acquired that thing. They can now touch it, see it and feel it. But then this may dissipate after a while, as those earlier feelings that they experienced were temporary; not ones that can be held on to for a longer period of time. This is why it is important to also attach how you want to feel, along with those acquisitions. Otherwise the feeling of emptiness will occur. Has this happened to you, when you finally got it and like “well… what shall I do now?”
When I think of the soul, I think of that part of me that cannot be seen to the visible eye. It is the inner energy, my heart; and I. Without these I will not be whole. As body and mind are interconnected, especially in this Universal plane. That is why is it so important not to forget about that inner part, the fire that gives us energy to keep us going, and focused on our goals.
Here is an exercise for you to do:
- What does happy and excited mean for you?
- How do you want to feel? Write it down.
Next time you plan to acquire something new, or achieve a goal do this exercise. And put the list alongside your goals, as this is where it begins, starting with what fires you up.
