Inspired by Lynn Grabhorn
I, Guus, was inspired by the book Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting: The Power of Positive Feelings from Lynn Grabhorn and want to see if I can somehow make the ideas accessible to you in a compressed format.
Power of feelings
The basic idea of the book is that our feelings are always ‘right’ AND are always followed by Infinite Intelligence, so also create our reality. So positive feelings create a ‘positive’ life, negative feelings create a ‘negative’ life. So when your life is ‘negative’ or in other words, when you are not successful, it is because your negative feelings overrule the positive feelings. So in order to be successful you only need to change your feelings from negative to positive.
And while writing this whole idea is of course similar to what Napoleon Hill says about thoughts. So positive thoughts or feelings have positive outcome in life, negative thoughts or feelings have negative outcome in life.
And the tricky thing is that humans tend to think and feel in don’t have and not in have, so of course the ‘not have’ will express itself in life as that’s what we focus on. The trick is to convert the don’t have into have or the don’t want into want.
And your feelings are your guide, as negative feelings are some kind of red flag, like ‘you’re on the wrong road’ and positive feelings are something like ‘you’re on the right track’. So your feelings are your guideline in this. Basics is to listen to your feelings.
The solution Lynn Grabhorn presents to go from ‘negative’ to ‘positive’ is very simple in the basics:
- Identify what you DON’T want.
- From that, identify what you DO want.
- Get into the feeling place of what you want.
- Expect, listen and allow it to happen.
That’s it, that’s all. And I guess Napoleon Hill implies the same, even though he focuses more on actions. Lynn Grabhorn doesn’t explicitly mention it, but merely mentions in between the lines that in (4) you will automatically take action. And of course that goes kind of back to the basic drive Napoleon Hill mentions: desire.
Listen to your feelings
Most important statement in the book is that your feelings are always ‘right’ and that for that reason your feelings are your guideline. So check very carefully what your feelings say and follow that (and don’t reason out, don’t listen to others). And again, that’s exactly what Napoleon Hill states many times: do your own thing.
