“I am starving!” Have you ever heard that? Have you ever said it? This past week I found out I was starving, and I didn’t know it.
Last Sunday, March 6, at 8:45 AM, started my day of silence. It lasted until 4:30 AM Monday. Nothing happened. Well almost nothing happened. No cell phone, no texting, no computer, no TV, no conversations, and no contact with other people. It was just me, my dog, cat and thoughts… it was silent. That is except for all the chatter running through my head. When the noise settled and I could think…I learned about Subby.
I was starving Subby by not being consistent with her diet, and I hadn’t noticed. Later in the week I did my homework, catching up on Think and Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill. I needed to know beyond a shadow of a doubt, what my steps would be to take care of her. I learned about the seven major positive emotions: desire, faith, love, sex, enthusiasm, romance and hope. The counter seven major negative emotions: fear, jealousy, hatred, revenge, greed, superstition, and anger. But most important I learned the plan to feed Subby. “Positive and negative emotions cannot occupy the mind at the same time! One or the other must be dominate.” I need to form the habit of using positive emotions! I started making out more 3×5 cards! My biggest negative emotion…fear. My biggest positive emotion… faith. I am using my faith cards by reading them out loud with enthusiasm. I am reading them in the morning and at night. I recite them when I can’t sleep at night. When I am bombarded with negativity, I remind myself that there is no room for negativity in my life, and I am back on the war path to defeat these emotions, by replacing them with positive ones. Napoleon Hill says that eventually the positive emotions will take hold and there will no longer be room for the negative emotions. I am counting on it!
Are you getting the results you desire with you definite major purpose? If not, you might check your diet. You just may be starving and hadn’t noticed.
