How we feel about the things we are doing is actually more important than the actual tasks we are completing. The feeling is what sets the stage for how your plans will progress and the outcomes you will achieve. Without a doubt, the physical tasks play a large role, there are just certain things that need to get done, details that must be attended to. You will not get very far as an author if you never write anything down. You will never get the bank loan without a well-thought out business plan. But, if you are not carrying out these tasks with the right kind of energy, success will come much harder to you or elude you completely. You need to visualize and do whatever else makes you feel good about the things you are doing in life, that will help convince you that you will get all the help you need and that things will work out just as you desire them to. Without these feelings, all the stuff you are doing will be for naught because you will be pushing away the very things you desire.
Because of the importance of feeling good, you need to be able to step back and recharge when you are feeling stressed and scared and you feel the need to force yourself to do certain things on the outside. Proceeding with this state of mind is detrimental and a waste of time. We forget this sometimes, however, and we focus full-force on all of these outside things that need to get done because we believe that is how we are going to get what we want, but it is not. Like I mentioned before, they surely have their place and they are important in their own way. But if your feelings are not supporting getting what you want, if you are not feeling good while you are doing all of these things, you are only holding yourself back with this feeling of force. You would be better off spending your time writing out an affirmative statement over and over or reading a book about the power of your mind in shaping your reality and not going back to the work you need to do until you are in a better place mentally.
Some scoff at these types of suggestions because they believe spending your time doing these types of things has nothing to do with getting what you want; they believe it is hard work and force. Sure, some may succeed by these very means, but it usually makes it a whole lot harder and it takes a whole lot longer. Our minds play a huge role in shaping our reality and it is of your best interest to use this power in your favor, not to your detriment.
