“Human behavior flows from three main sources: desire, emotion, and knowledge.” – Plato
Tonight as I was driving home from a great dinner with friends I started listening to a radio show called The Sporting Life and the first story was about Knowshon Moreno, and how he gets extremely emotional prior to each of his football games. He talked about how he reminisces about his turbulent childhood, and how his life has changed and is full of opportunities today.
His life arc went from living in shelters as a child, with his father, to playing in the Super Bowl in a couple Sundays from now. This was an amazing reminder of how powerful emotions can be when they are harnessed and used to motivate us. Our emotions can lead us in extremely positive directions, but they can also take us down dark roads. What emotional memories can I use today to propel me to a new level of existence?
In my life I have learned that some of my most emotionally charged memories can be used as an asset today. Even the things in life that happened, and I labeled them as “negative” at the time have come full circle and they are some of my greatest treasures that I can share with other people.
Affirmation: Thank you Life for each and everyone of my experiences. I harness all that the Universe sends me, and use it for the ultimate good.
Call to Action: Share a vivid memory that you have from your past, and how you have used it to better your life today. We would also love to hear about any story that you are going to use today to motivate you moving forward.
