Are you moving toward, or moving away?

Psychologists tell us that all emotions are rooted either in love or in fear. Anger, for example, is a symptom of fear. You can’t be angry if you’re not afraid. Joy is based in love. You can’t feel bliss without having love at the core. Fear is a “moving-away-from” emotion. Love is “moving-toward.”

Take a moment to analyze the disastrous decisions you’ve made. It’s not easy to look such decisions in the eye, but it’s well worth it. A pattern of “moving away” from something will generally emerge. Moving away from missing a quota. Moving away from confronting a problem in the relationship with your supervisor.

One very common pattern is moving away from one company or boss as opposed to moving toward a bigger calling. You hate where you are, so you flee, instead of choosing to love where you want to be and running toward it.

There’s a reason for the saying, “Out of the frying pan, into the fire.” Too many of the changes we make are exactly that.

So the next time you need to make a decision, ask yourself if you’re moving away from something or moving toward something, and always choose to move toward. Once you master that assessment, it’s amazing how much better your decision-making and results will become.

  1. I’ve had a black leather sofa for nearly 15 years and I still love it. We have wood flooring and I can change rugs and cushions and get a different look with it each time. It is very versatile and the black doesn’t date, and is very practical cleaning wise

  2. Will spread the word! My girl is also a part of the class 2 days a week and comes home full of stories and the fun she shared! It is a great program for all!

  3. I’m shocked that I found this info so easily.
