Your thoughts matter because they determine how you feel.
And the reason why we do ANYTHING and EVERYTHING is because of how we feel or how we think we will feel.
I work everyday because I love the way it feels to be able to take care of myself and my family.
I show up for my clients every single day because I love the way it feels to help them solve their problems and see them get to where they want to be.
I work out because I like the way I feel when I’ve done it, when I’ve gone harder/heavier than last week, and when I look at my body in the mirror.
Although each step of it won’t feel good, it’s the end result that feels amazing and worth all of the bad feelings experienced during the process. Getting up early in the mornings, having long days, not spending as much time with my family, physical soreness from lifting weights, and pushing through the “I’m tired and I don’t feel like it.” None of it feels good in the moment, but the feeling in the end is priceless.
With a negative thought, we feel bad. When we feel bad, we do bad things (i.e., over-eat, over-drink, over-Netflix, over-social media, compare ourselves to others, etc.) or we do nothing at all.
With a positive thought, we feel good. When we feel good, we do good things (create/invent/design, put ourselves out there, take risks, take care of ourselves/each other, etc.).
Thoughts matter because they are the one single thing that determines how the rest of your life turns out.
If you want to know which bucket (positive or negative) most of your thoughts reside, look at what you’ve created in your life. Are you eating/drinking more than you would like? Are you constantly comparing yourself to other people? Are you being who you ultimately want to be? Are you doing what you ultimately want to be doing?
