Has your 2017 got off to a great start? Are you raring to go and ready to create an impact in the world?
Or has your energy dropped and you’re wondering what is all the fuss about?
At this time of year, you may start making resolutions or setting intentions that this year will be different. You’re going to change jobs, lose some weight, eat better and so on. When you’re in the moment and you’re excited everything seems possible. But when you’ve had a bad journey into the office, or your life has kept you up at night, you can start to lose perspective and it doesn’t matter so much.
You know you’re in a career transition, so why don’t you do something about it? You’re waiting for a feeling.
So many of us are caught up in our feelings and they govern our thoughts and actions. So when you feel excited or motivated, your thoughts join in and say yes and then you’re off to the gym or starting the job hunt. But when you feel miserable, your thoughts agree and tell you that you don’t feel like it, and so there’s a missed gym class or the delayed job hunt and you decide it can wait until tomorrow or when you do feel like it. Therein lies the problem you can’t trust that feeling/thought combination! You might not feel like it for a while, but that’s no reason why you can’t go to the gym. You’re aware of the affirmation ‘Feel the fear and do it anyway’? My version is ‘I don’t feel like it, but I’m doing it anyway!’
Don’t let your feelings run your life. The reality is that once you get started, you may start to feel like it, and even if you still don’t, you’re there now, so you may as well take the class!
