Your thoughts and words have to no power at all in your life without your feelings. You think so many thoughts in a day that don’t amount to anything because many of your thoughts don’t elicit a strong feeling within you. It’s what you feel that matters!
Imagine your thoughts and words as being like a rocket ship, and your feelings as the fuel. A rocket ship is a stationary vehicle that can’t do anything without fuel, because the fuel is the power that lifts the rocket ship. It’s the same with your thoughts and words. Your thoughts and words are vehicles that can’t do anything without your feelings, because your feelings are the power of your thoughts and words!
If you think, “I can’t stand my boss,” that thought is expressing a strong negative feeling you have about your boss and you’re giving out that negative feeling. As a consequence your relationship with your boss will continue to get worse.
If you think, “I work with some fabulous people in my job,” those words are expressing the positive feeling you have about the people you work with and you’re giving out that positive feelings. As a consequence, your relationship with your work colleagues will continue to get better.
How you feel in any one moment is more important than anything else, because how you feel right now is creating your life.
“The emotions must be called upon to give feeling to the thought so it will take form.”
