Success in life is not about money, power or possessions. Success in life is about the results you obtain from choosing good feeling thoughts and acting upon them.
Join me as we explore each one the components to create a successful life complemented with 7 inspiring quotes.
Your beliefs pave your way to success or block you.” – Marsha Sinetar
Beliefs are the color with which you see life. They are the flavor, the essence and the filter of all of you choices of thought, feelings, ideas, decisions, actions and therefore results.
If you want to have a successful life you need to make sure that the beliefs you have up until now are the right ones for the kind of life you desire. If so far those beliefs have taken you not even close to where you want to be, then it is time to begin taking a look at what you belief.
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.” – Aristotle
Just like our heart is always beating, our lungs are always breathing, our mind is always thinking. It’s up to us to decide which thoughts we want to pay attention to. You might say, but if I think a thought then it’s because that’s what I am. I do not agree with that. Thoughts are floating in the ether all the time and you’re able to see and hear them depending on how you feel.
So, I want you to educate your mind to only pay attention to those thoughts that feel good. You don’t have to accept a thought just because it’s there. Learn to pick and choose them.
Feelings are much like waves, we can’t stop them from coming but we can choose which one to surf.” – Jonatan Mårtensson
Feelings are not bad. Feelings are just indicators of the thoughts we’re paying attention to. If we’re just paying attention to any thought that passes through you mind, then we’re very likely going to experience mixed, confused, and not so good feelings.
When that happens, because it will, just allow yourself to feel them. Don’t condemn them, don’t judge them, don’t suppress them. If you can interrupt a bad feeling, do so with a better feeling thought. If not, then allow yourself to feel them. According to Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, feelings usually take about 90 seconds to be processed by our bodies. It’s not that bad when you consider that not processing a feeling will stay in your body for most of your life.
The quality of an idea depends on the thoughts and feelings of the thinker.” – CLI
Ideas coming to you are nothing but thoughts coming to your mind. And the quality of those thoughts and ideas depend on how you’re feeling. Make sure your feelings are aligned to the kind of idea you are looking for.
If you are looking for good feeling and empowering ideas, then you need to pay attention to how you are feeling. If you’re not feeling so good emotionally, take some time off to change the kind of thoughts you’re allowing in your mind. Come back to brainstorm for ideas when you feel better and you will notice the quality of your ideas improving.
May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears.” – Nelson Mandela
Decisions coming from good feeling thoughts and ideas are empowered decisions. We make hundreds of decisions during the day, and I know it’s impossible to be conscious about all of them, so just try to pay attention to the most significant ones.
If you want positive results, make sure your decisions are the best feeling decisions you could feel at that moment. Decisions that will affect how you’d feel for a long period of time; decisions you can live with.
Action is the foundational key to all success.” – Pablo Picasso
Nothing happens without action. But also, fearful, forced and insecure action is detrimental to you and those affected by the action you took. Action should only be taken when you feel strongly in your inner being that it’s time for those actions.
Even if you don’t see the whole picture of where you’re going, if taking the action you desire feels good in your gut, go ahead and move forward. But I also want you to keep in mind Divine timing: there is a time for everything.
Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results.” – Willie Nelson
You might realize by now that the results you’ll see in your life are in direct correlation with the thoughts you allow yourself to think.
If you want good and positive results in your life you need to learn to not pay attention to thoughts that make you feel bad, and allow yourself to only or mostly pay attention to those thoughts that feel good to you.
When you allow positive feeling thoughts in your mind, you will begin to see more positive results in your life. Putting all of those positive results together is what make up a successful life.
You can do this. We all can. Take advantage of your God given free will, begin by choosing what to believe and what to think, and use your feelings to guide you to a successful life.
