February 7, 2011 - Are you charging toward your goals without really feeling them deep inside? Are you so focused on reaching the goals that you have lost sight as to why they have meaning and value to you in the first place? Feeling your goals is essential in your journey towards achieving them. When you feel them, they become more than something you check off as an accomplishment. They become interwoven into the fabric of your existence - shaping the tapestry of your ultimate and ideal life.
Take an MM&I Moment to write down how you feel right now about going after your goals. Write how you know you will feel when you achieve each goal. How will those important to you feel when you reach your goals? Keeping aware of your feelings throughout the process will help make the process easier, more exciting and more enjoyable. Because when you feel from the deepest region of your heart, then you know passion is driving you forward towards where you want to be. And when this exists, nothing, absolutely nothing can stop you.
