Welcome to part 3 of our 4-part series called How To Get Out Of Your Own Way in 2023. Why do we set goals to expand ourselves and excite ourselves into action?
Then we kinda freak because our mind says “DANG! I don’t actually know how to do that.” When that happens a variety of emotions begin to set in that require consistent management in order to create results. In this episode, I share 2 key tools to help you manage your emotions this year.

On day 2 we talked about the real purpose of goals, so let’s review:
Why do we set goals?
To expand ourselves and to stretch ourselves so we get game gut and it excites us to take action.
Then we kinda freak because we are like “Shit, I don’t actually know how to do that!”
You aren’t supposed to not know how to do it. That’s the entire point of what we discussed yesterday. The journey to become with trial and error is a journey of becoming. It makes you freakin’ feel ALIVE!!!!!! It’s that butterfly feeling.
Sometimes though you go into complete avoidance of that feeling and other emotions take over.
Here’s an example:
A circumstance creates a thought and imagery that drives a feeling and feelings create action/inaction and that creates a result.
You can not find an example where this is NOT the case.
So if emotions drive you into action and inaction, then the key to emotions is what you think and see in you, here is your reminder that you MUST manage it from time to time.
This is NOT a “think different thoughts get different outcomes” conversation.
While it is that simple…it isn’t easy.
It literally requires you to retrain your brain to experience thoughts and emotions that drive the actions you want every day.
I will be teaching this in my upcoming 3-day training BTW. If you haven’t you should go there now and sign up. You can sign up here for that training.
Here is a quote that I think exemplifies what I mean:
“Live in the feelings of your deepest desires”-Wayne Dyer
You must constantly call in, channel, and connect to, the feeling that drives the action you want.
The problem though is two things:
- Competing Priorities
- Old patterns…an affinity of connecting to the unwanted feelings because they are your “norm”.
I will be going into more specific detail on how to overcome these conflicting priorities in my training in a few weeks, so be sure to join me!
And for more details on how you can help manage these conflicting emotions when it comes to action and inaction, tune into today’s episode!
