#5 Do You Want to Feel Better?

Why can’t you shake the lingering feeling of anxiety or annoyance…why is it you always feel rushed no matter what you accomplish?  I’m going to help you understand why you feel the way you do.  And I also want to address what you can do to start feeling better.

You are not at the effect of your surroundings as much as you may believe.  You DO have the ability to take much more control over more of your life.  I’m not saying it is an easy skill to master or that it won’t require work.  Taking command over your life starts with the way you are thinking.  What kinds of thoughts are you telling yourself and believing … which ones are self-destructive and which ones are going to propel you?   

Feelings are an arrangement between body chemistry and body tissues.  Your feelings are generated by each and every thought you have in your brain, whether these thoughts are intentional or not.  Imagine a world in which you possess the ability to think every thought with intention.  What if every thought served a distinct purpose – as opposed to allowing your thoughts to just happen?  Learning to think deliberately translates to feeling better because your thinking triggers all feelings inside your body. 

Managing your mind, i.e., managing your thinking, will have a direct effect on the way you are feeling.  Your brain is going to keep on thinking whether you direct it or not.  This is one secret to feeling better.  Take charge of your thoughts by thinking with intent.  The ability to think on purpose will make you feel on purpose.
