Today I would like to talk about something that I see holding a lot of people back from truly creating the life that they desire
Now I'm a huge believer in positive thinking. I know that you can get more done with a positive mental attitude than you can with a negative one, however these days there is an epidemic of intense focus on always feeling good, always feeling positive, and always feeling wonderful, and this is actually keeping a lot of people stuck in place and preventing them from moving forward.
Let's take a step back for a minute. Think of all the people you know of that already have the life that you desire the life you would like to create. They have the fame they have the fortune, they have the health, they have the family - whatever it is, or all of it.
Do you really think that they always feel happy, always feel wonderful, always feel positive? Of course they don't. Everyone feels fear, doubt, and uncertainty. Everyone gets mad, and everyone gets frustrated. It's natural.
In fact many of the most famous and wealthy people that we know are well-known from suffering from depression and other emotional maladies, and some of them are just plain jerks a lot of the time. They're angry, they're bullies, and they're mad.
So if they've already created the life that you want to create how can this teaching fundamentally be true?
The truth is that emotions are a form of energy - be they positive emotions or negative emotions. They’re just a form of energy and all those emotions - no matter if they're positive or negative - all of that energy they have can be directed towards creating what you do want. You just have to learn how to redirect the focus of that energy and direct it in a positive way to what you do want in your life.
What holds people back is when they keep negative emotions inside - not using that energy but keeping it inside. And this is usually because they're suppressing them. They're holding them back. They're pretending
The negative emotions are not there.
Why? Because they've been taught that they always have to feel happy, always have to feel wonderful, and always have to feel positive. Then these negative emotions come out and they pretend they're not there.
I did this for years and years and years until I was taught something new and could finally move my life forward by really directing all of that energy from negative emotions towards creating the life that I do want.
The truth is that negative emotions are natural. They have a purpose. You have them for a reason.
If you are pushing yourself, if you're moving beyond your comfort zone and boundaries, if you are trying to do something new, or trying to do something that sets you apart from the crowd, then you are going to feel negative emotions. You're going to feel doubt, uncertainty, fear, frustration, and nervousness. This is natural.
You have these negative emotions for a reason.
One of the many reasons you have them is to give you the energy require to propel yourself forward. You just have to learn how to use it properly.
I hope this helps.
