Feelings are amazing things; the high of love, the wonder of awe, and even the devastation of loss. What you feel is what makes you who you are and how you see the world around you. Your feelings are also the number one killer of your dreams, success, and fortune.

Instead of your feelings being one of many inputs you use to interpret the world around you so that you can properly respond to your environment, you’ve made them master of your life. Your feelings are your master because they determine how you react to the current situation and the actions that you take. An example of this is putting some action that you need to take off because you don’t feel like it. The bottom line is if you allow how you feel to run your life, you’ll never have the life you truly want from a relationship perspective, a significance perspective, or a success perspective.

If you want more from your life, then you need to put your feelings in their place. They’re a tool to be used to help you analyze your situation, nothing more. By stepping back and interpreting your situation through all your faculties, you’ll be able to respond to it better than just using your feelings.

If you want major success in your life, setting goals is a must. And sure, setting big goals for yourself is exciting; for about five seconds. Then the doubt and fear kick in and will stop you in your tracks if you let them. Then when you push through the doubt and fear, you’re going to run into annoying and monotonous. Which again will derail you if your actions are driven by how you feel. Instead of letting your feelings use you, start using them to your advantage. Focus on what you want, why you want it, and how you’ll feel when you achieve it. Now you’re cooking with gas!

Take control of your life by taking your feelings out of the driver’s seat and putting them where they belong, in your toolbox. When you do this, you’ll show the world just how AMAZING you are!
