Feeling of Success when we keep a Promise to ourselves

Generating a Feeling of Success

Why do I keep a promise to myselfHave you made goals in the past and found that you got disillusioned because you just could not keep them?
Yes, I know, some people say ‘dream big’ or ‘reach for the stars’. This may work for some people.

We are all different and for those who may not fit into the above category it may work better to start with easy and small achievable adjustments.
When we experience success, no matter how small, we can build on it.
Keeping a promise to ourselves results in feeling that we ‘can do it’ and makes us want to do more.
We then feel more successful because of the sense of achievement!

Areas of Adjustments could be:

  • Eating a healthy diet
  • Exercising
  • Writing x-amount of posts a week
  • Weeding the garden
  • Answering emails
  • etc.

Start with an easy and small promise for just Seven Days.

Time for Self Reflection

Beach painting on wall with window“Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action.” Peter F. Drucker

“By three methods we may learn wisdom: first, by reflection, which is noblest; second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.” Confucius

How much time do you get/take to be by yourself to reflect?
Maybe we don’t all need the same amount of time to spend alone to tune in, to reconnect? Do we get/take enough time and what do we do with it when we have it?

“Women need real moments of solitude and self-reflection to balance out how much of ourselves we give away.” Barbara De Angelis

Some of us may have been conditioned to see self reflection as ‘navel gazing’.
I believe that taking time out and taking ‘stock’ can increase our effectiveness and contribute to well being success and abundance and make us more efficient in using our time.

Here are some questions we could ask ourselves:

* What is true for me?
~ What do I like?
~ What do I want?
~ How do I define myself?

* What do I believe about myself?
~ What did I learn from things that didn’t work out as planned?
~ How can I derive something positive from my mistakes/failures?
~ What do I want to focus on?

* What are my [intlink id=”435″ type=”post” target=”_blank” anchor=”Post on Positive Aspects”]positive aspects[/intlink]?
~ What do I appreciate about myself?
~ What are my achievements?
~ How far did I come in the last week, month, year?

* How far do I want to ‘look’ into the future, plan, set goals?
~ Do I want to set goals?
~ What are my fears around setting goals?

* What is on my plate, in the fridge in the freezer?
~ Do I need more or less on my plate?
~ If I went at my own pace what would I do/not do?

* What am I good at?
~ Do I want to get better at what I am not good at?
~ Could I delegate what I am not good at?
~ What would my day look like at the end of the day if I felt good about it?

* How do I feel?
~ Where do those feelings come from?
~ What were my thoughts before I had those feelings?
~ What past/childhood experiences may be related to those feelings?

* Do I allow myself to trust the process?
~ Do I believe it is all unfolding perfectly?
~ Even if I don’t answer any of those questions?

Joy is the Goal

Is your Goal Joy?Sun rainbow spiralDo you have goals?

Yes, I am sure you do; well, seems that most people do.

Success seems to be a goal for most people.

Goals are essential when we want to be successful.

How would you feel if you reach your goal?

Proud, successful, happy – joyful?

So, is it the achievement of financial, career, material, physical or relationship goals

that we aim for, or is it the feelings we get when we achieve what we wanted?


Would we enjoy reaching our goals if we would feel indifferent or maybe even worse?

I don’t know about you, but achieving something that doesn’t give me a good feeling would not ‘do it for me’.

When we aim for something that can give us

a feeling of happiness, fulfillment, freedom, empowerment and ultimately joy,

then the journey towards achieving what we set out for is more worthwhile.

Staying inspired along the way is a lot easier, if we can keep in mind the feeling we are aiming for.

If you want money, the feeling is usually feeling secure,

and when you feel secure, you feel a sense of freedom,

and when you feel a sense of freedom you experience Joy.

If you want a (better) relationship, you want to feel loved, when you feel loved,

you feel appreciated, understood, cared for, accepted and all those feeling add up to joy.

Now – here is the thing*:

(*for the fun of it, I wanted to use “here’s the thing” as Leonard says it on the “Big Bang Theory” )


Just like you can only ‘eat an elephant only one bit at a time’ you are able

to get to the feelings of joy and freedom one better feeling at a time.

As you go through your day, notice your feelings.

If your feelings don’t feel as good as you want them to,

find a thought or something to do that makes you feel a little bit better.

Keep doing that and you are thought by thought,

feeling by feeling moving closer and closer towards joy.

Every slight improvement is worth it.

The good news is that, as you are feeling better,

through the Law of Attraction,

you will have access to more good feeling thoughts, ideas, people etc.

Focusing on the feeling, the why we want it, the joy,

the journey towards achieving our goals is more fun.

Is being aware of our feelings and thoughts worth it?

When it comes to achieving any goal we want it is not only worth it,

it is an essential ingredients and it helps to feel better along the way.
