When Losing Steam & Feeling Discouraged
This may be the single most common question I get.
We’ve addressed it before, but it’s worth repeating.
And since it’s in my inbox three times today, I’m officially inviting your expertise and advice on it.
Here’s a compiled summary of the emailed questions:
- I’m starting to get discouraged at the lack of results in my business/dating life/health regime.
- I still haven’t found a way to effectively market my services/attract a partner/get healthy, and am losing steam fast.
- Everyone says you haven’t failed until you give up, but it’s hard to continue without any sign of progress. Can you help? I just want to feel better.
This is my personal response to any LOA-savvy friend feeling discouraged with lack of results:
First of all, I’ve been here and done this. I know the routine of feeling bad about what’s not happening despite best efforts.
And … conscious creators know we don’t let results dictate how we feel.
Results come from how we feel; they don’t tell us how to feel. (Letting reality dictate our vibration is the muggle way.)
Meaning, our job is to find any vibration that feels better and lead with that, rather than try to create results in order to feel better.
That’s the heart of conscious creation.
And granted, not the easiest thing to do when we’ve been practicing feeling bad. Anything with momentum likes to keep doing itself.
But we can change the trajectory.
One better feeling thought (or action) at a time.
Because we know that feeling better is the key, and we can do that right now. Even if it’s tears, a tantrum, a meditation, a distraction, a nap, a beer, a cookie, a swear word, even a little self-pleasure – whatever would feel better. That’s where we start.
Instead of trying to make things happen so we feel better, find a way to feel better first. After that we just honor inspiration.
It’s pretty simple. And you can do it.
This is a chance to walk your LOA talk! Practice what you know and it won’t take long before life reflects your unconditional approach to it.
That’s what I’d say.
And now it’s your turn, guys …
