Do you ever know what you need to do, but you just don’t feel like doing it? The answer is probably every day!
Most of us know what we should do, but we just don’t have the emotional feeling to support that action. My mom has always kept it simple. She says, “Sometimes you gotta do things you don’t want to do.” I bet I heard that hundreds of times in my life.
For me, I learned that feelings and emotion is a terrible leader. If I elect them as the leaders of my life they may make a mess of my life. They are important, but they are better followers than leaders.
The feelings and positive emotions will follow behind the action, but they won’t lead it. Tony Robins says, “Motion creates emotion.”
So whether you want to hear it from Tony Robins or my momma, the principle is the same. We often won’t feel like it, but let’s do it anyway. The feelings we want will follow behind.
