Are you living a life based on feelings, or are you living a life based on purpose?
So what’s the difference?
Well there are some days where we feel like we can conquer the world! And there are other days where we feel like we can barely tie our own shoes. LOL
We all have our ups and downs. It’s normal; we’re human, but this is where we need to be conscious about what we’re doing.
Life can already be like a rollercoaster ride. And if we live our life based on our feelings, that rollercoaster ride is only going to get bumpier.
We go through many stages and goals in our life. From going to school when we’re kids to climbing the ladder in our careers as adults; and so many things in between.
There are going to be days when we feel like not going to school.
There are going to be days when we feel like not going to work.
There are going to be days when we feel like not exercising.
And I can go on and on, but my point is that there are simply going to be times when we feel like not giving it our all. When we feel like not giving it our best because the reality is that feelings change.
So if we live a life solely based on feelings, how are we suppose to accomplish our goals? Most likely we won’t. But if we live a life based on purpose; we now have something powerful. Something so powerful that every time we feel like not doing something, it is going to be that reminder that kicks us into gear. It is going to help us flick that switch, to kick those negative feelings to the curb and fill us up with those positive feelings again; ready to take action.
So stop living a life based on feelings.
Focus on your purpose and live your life based on that purpose!
