Often when I meet people for the first time they ask me what my goals are. (I think it is an attempt at humour as I teach people how to set powerful and specific goals.) I proudly tell them, “My goal is to feel good.” Most look perplexed; others repeat back my answer, “So you want to feel good?” I think they are expecting me to have some profound goal in life. I laugh and explain…….. Whilst I have some very powerful short and long term goals, my main aim is to “feel good” every day. By that I mean I want to feel free, live in complete joy, laugh lots, and live my passions. Then they get it.
Here’s the thing: When we feel good we can climb mountains, we can overcome obstacles, and we can achieve great heights. Feeling good means that we can be totally focused on our agenda and no one else’s.
A major part of feeling good is giving others the gift of forgiveness. It is letting go of what others have said and done to us that have hurt. In giving this gift, we are giving ourselves a greater gift – the freedom of feeling good…..and really, we all want to feel good don’t we? So, even though others may not deserve it, we deserve the best life, and we can only experience that life when our heart is open and free.
In the 7 DAY FORGIVENESS CHALLENGE we have been choosing to forgive and have been learning how to forgive. In this time you may have been experiencing many conflicting emotions. You may have wanted to forgive, but felt anger or bitterness; you may have wanted to exact revenge; or you simply may have thought, “They don’t deserve my forgiveness”. When we work through the heart issues and emotions and forgive, we find a fabulous freedom and joy. We understand that we are 100% responsible for our own happiness.
The challenge isn’t over! Follow the “feel good” every day. You will be surprised at what happens – you will feel happier than ever, the creativity that is distinctly yours will blossom, and you will see opportunities to advance in areas you have not previously seen!Is
