When was the last time you stopped to reflect on what truly drives you? Amidst the hustle and bustle of daily tasks and bottom-line goals, there lies a profound truth: our feelings shape our outcomes.

If you’ve been a long-time subscriber to my newsletter, then you and I have delved into strategies for optimising our vitality and productivity, enhancing leadership skills, and fostering resilience in the face of overcoming serious illness.

I know – never a dull moment! Well today, I invite you to explore a foundational aspect of happiness, great health and career success that often goes overlooked: how you want to feel.

Consider this: when you wake up each morning, what emotions do you want to guide your day?

Do you seek to feel inspired, energised, and purposeful? Or perhaps you yearn for a sense of calm, balance, and fulfilment? These feelings serve as a powerful compass, guiding you toward decisions and actions aligned with your deepest aspirations.

Research in neuroscience underscores the profound impact of emotions on cognitive function, creativity, and overall well-being. When you intentionally cultivate positive emotions, you prime your mind for innovation, collaboration, and peak performance. Moreover, you create a ripple effect, influencing the energy and morale of those around you.

But the significance of how you want to feel extends beyond your well-being — it directly impacts your career success too. When you operate from a place of alignment with your desired emotions, you unlock your full potential to innovate, strategise, and execute with precision. Your clarity of vision becomes sharper, your decision-making becomes more discerning, and your ability to adapt to change becomes more agile.

Imagine the possibilities that unfold when you lead with intention, anchored in the feelings that propel you toward your boldest dreams and goals. By integrating this awareness into your life, your leadership and your business strategies, you not only enhance your vitality and happiness but also drive sustainable growth and profitability.

so, I’d like to share with you three questions that will help you to harness the power of how you want to feel:

1. What emotions do I want to cultivate in my personal and professional life?

2. How can I align my daily actions and decisions with these desired feelings?

3. What strategies can I implement to foster a culture of emotional well-being within my team or organisation?

Take your time with these questions, allow yourself to sit with them and then of course, write them down and put those answers somewhere you’ll see every day to keep you moving in the right direction using the power of how you want to feel.

One more thing before I sign off, my coaching programmes are tailored to help you not only define how you want to feel but also empower you to actualise those feelings in your life and work, and even your legacy.  If you’d like support, guidance and strategies designed to maximise your potential then I have two spaces coming up at the end of the month. If you’d like one or you’d like to chat with me about how we can work together 1-2-1, then simply give me a call or drop me a line and we can have a chat.

Till next time…
