Conditional Living is attaching how you feel to a condition.
When you attach your feelings to circumstances we call this conditional living.
And if you do this, you are going to experience frustration and disappointment.
I’ll be happy when…I have more money.
I lose weight, my kids are grown, I retire, I get a new job, I meet someone, when someone goes away, I get divorced, I start the business.
You get the idea.
I get this mentality. I had this mentality.
I’ll feel secure when I have more money and don’t need to rely on someone else.
I’ll be comfortable when I’m in my dream house and I don’t have to move again.
I’ll feel confident when I look the way I want, have the career I want, basically when everything is exactly how I want it.
Here’s the problem…if you’re waiting to feel good until you have it, you’re keeping yourself from feeling good now.
The feeling you’re chasing will always be right there.
You might feel it momentarily or for a little bit, but then it starts to fade.
Why? Because emotions don’t come from conditions or circumstances.
They come from how you think.
How you think about yourself.
What you believe the rules are for getting what you want.
You can absolutely feel the way you want right now…without a single condition changing.
It was never about the condition…the condition is the RESULT of the feeling, not the catalyst.
Get really happy, connected, comfortable, confident, inspired…and then…You will know exactly what to do.
You will know exactly what needs to change.
You will know exactly how to do the thing your way.
How do you get happy?
You let yourself.
You handle the rules you have for feeling good.
You question the beliefs you have for getting what you want.
You become aware of the stories you tell.
You’re always only a belief away from the relief you’re looking for.
