Is your Goal Joy?Do 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.
