Thoughts Can't Get You to the Place Feeling Can


Do you want to feel good no matter what? This week's 4 feel-good habits will help. 

​Habit #1

​Thoughts can’t get you to the place feeling can. 

Insight is felt in the present moment. You don’t learn in the past or the future; you learn something right now.  

Things aren’t happening to you yesterday or tomorrow; they are happening now. 

Putting thoughts to things will mince words to make ideas into future goals. Thoughts dig around in the past for evidence to support those ideas. 

None of this is now. 

Everything is unfolding in the present moment. Your assessments and thoughts cause you to dig around in the past and project ideas on the future. 

You feel inner wisdom. The way to know you’re in the moment is to feel it. It will always feel good. 

If it feels bad or neutral, it means you're assessing it ( past/future), not feeling it now. 


Instead of thinking about things you want in the future, feel what it would be like to have them now.

HABIT​ #2 ​

When you are looking for something you don’t believe you’ll find, you can’t find it. 

Your disbelief will make sure of it. 

If you don’t believe you’ll find a great job, you won’t. If you don’t believe you’ll find a great spouse, you won’t. It’s about the belief inside you, not the circumstances around you. 

There are no circumstances that can compensate for a lack of belief.


Think about something you want but can’t seem to get. Now stop looking for it and assume you have it. 

If you want to find something, get your mindset straight first. Stop looking outside yourself and believe inside yourself. 

HABIT​ #3​

Right now, notice how you feel. Good or bad? If you say bland, neutral, or just okay- tune in to the way you feel. 

You have to get used to feeling emotions instead of thinking about them. 


What I’ve learned most from Blissing Out is this:  You live your life most through your feelings, not your goals. 

Life is meant to be experienced, felt and lived right now, not analyzed and sorted into piles of good and bad in the future. 

Life is not a future goal but a current feeling inside you. When you feel good, this is how you know you're living your life - living in it, not analyzing it.  

When you feel good, you feel life inside you right now, not picking it apart and assessing its future value. 

 If this doesn’t make sense, stop thinking about it and instead feel good about something. You will feel the difference. 


Bliss Out. It will all make sense. 

HABIT ​#4​

Your feelings give depth to your experience. 

It’s like being in the middle of a forest and touching, smelling and feeling it instead of looking at a picture of a forest. 

Life is interpreted and lived through your senses and emotions.

Many things may seem stiff or one dimensional until you feel them and they come to life. Most people ignore their feelings because they are too busy conquering future goals. 

However, your feelings in the present moment are giving you direction- they either move you forward or hold you back. 

The way you interpret your world is the way your life unfolds. Make sure that interpretation isn’t based on a flat picture but a deeper meaning. 


 Do something you enjoy, and from time to time, briefly pay attention to how you feel. 

Feelings aren't meant to be analyzed; they are meant to be felt. 

Disengage from any internal mental dialogue and instead feel the good vibes explode inside you.
