Today’s quote of the day by author Michael Nolan is one of my favorites. With so many things these days vying for our attention, how easy it is to be drawn in many different directions that often leave us feeling overwhelmed, fragmented and disempowered.
One thing I’ve learned to do when an idea or opportunity presents itself is to check in with my heart to see if it produces a feeling of joy and then to notice if it makes my body feel energized. If the idea or opportunity passes both these tests, then I know that it deserves my attention. If it doesn’t pass these tests it doesn’t necessarily mean it is a bad idea — it is just an idea that is not right for me at this time in my life.
By following this rule, I find that I can keep myself in a joyous state of personal empowerment and avoid feeling overwhelmed.
