How Do You Feel

What we feel is determined by our actions. The same is also true for our lives. If we go out and pick up every sorrow that we find, we will be sad. If we go out with the intent of happiness, we will find it. The trick is not what is around us every day; it is where we pay attention. 

If you aren’t sure about this, I would like to suggest putting it to the test. First, do you want to feel happy or sad? Second, go out and find those things which match the way you wish to feel. After you’ve done this for a while, check yourself out. Are you happy, or are you sad? Give yourself a scale of 1 to 5. 

Some people may try to tell you some emotions are easier to find than others and more comfortable to assume. I want to suggest they are the same. You will have to run your test to see if I or some of the others are correct or not.

When you find out, please let me know. Just add a note to the blog and send it back to me.

Thank you for being with me. I hope to be with you again tomorrow.

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
