Love or Fear - You get to choose

In the last weeks’ posts, I said I was going to share with you the essence of what The Roadmap to Success program teaches. And please be clear that there’s a difference between “the essence” and the whole story. If you find the essence of interest, you can access the whole story at http://www.unshackledleadership.com/the-roadmap-to-success-program.

In the previous post, I explained the incredibly simple and straight-forward creation process. It’s analogous to the creation process for a farmer. To grow corn, for example, you only need three things: fertile soil, corn seeds and water.

For you and I, the process is the same, just different components. For us, we awake every day into the fertile soil of creation, the seeds are our thoughts and the water is our emotions. This week, let’s explore that final component, our emotions. This is the most frequently overlooked part of the creation process and a major reason why so few people have what they really want.

The reason behind this component of the creation process stems from the simple fact that everything in the universe is energy. It’s OK if you don’t understand that, you just have to accept that that is what is. Just like a magnet works by attracting like energies to itself, that’s exactly how we work. We are basically a source of energy and our emotions determine the kind of energy we emit. Haven’t you ever been around someone who was angry and you couldn’t wait to get away from them as fast as possible? Haven’t you even heard yourself say about another that they had bad vibes? The simple fact is that our emotions determine the frequency we are and what we attract.

As a practical matter, what this means is that we must choose our attitude. Unfortunately, very few people do this. I have heard it said and truly believe that no successful person allows the circumstances to dictate their attitude. Successful people choose their attitude and bring it to the circumstances of life and this has proven to be true of every truly successful person I have ever met. Please read those last two sentences over and over again until you really get it. It may be the most important thing you’ve ever heard!

Let me make this easy for you. Consider that in one way of looking at life, there are ONLY two human emotions: love and fear. They both produce great results, just very different kinds. Loving emotions nurture your thoughts, like a farmer putting fertilizer on his crops, and dramatically accelerate the manifestation of your hopes and dreams. Fearful emotions kill off your thoughts, like a farmer putting acid on his crops, and literally prevent the fulfillment of your hopes and dreams.

So what does love look like: joy, passion, excitement, enthusiasm, optimism, faith, trust, confidence, a belief in abundance. Read that list carefully. Do any of those words accurately describe your predominant emotions? What does fear look like: worry, concern, frustration, anger, resentment, disappointment, depression, a belief in scarcity. Now read that list carefully. Do any of those words accurately describe your predominant emotions?

The great likelihood is that you can more readily relate to the fear emotions than the love emotions and the reason for that is that fear is the default way of being. I don’t like that it is that way but that’s the way it is. You must choose love because if you don’t, you get fear by default. Maybe no one ever taught you that but just take a look and you can see that it is that way. Most people spend most if not all of their time worrying, being concerned, frustrated, angry, resentful and/or disappointed. Unfortunately, we take those feelings for granted. We shouldn’t because they do a wonderful job of preventing us from having what we want. In conclusion, choose love!

Summarizing what we’ve discussed over these past few weeks:

  • You were born with the same exact power to create as everyone else          
    • You can create anything
    • And, you’re creating all the time
    • There’s never a time you’re not creating
  • There’s not one thing you see with our eyes that’s the truth – it’s only a projection of your past thoughts
  • Your thoughts create your experiences 100% of the time
  • Your emotions are the fuel that either makes everything happen or prevents things from happening
