Have you ever thought about your feelings from an academic perspective? We aren't taught about feelings in school. How to process them and to let them in and that they are totally normal. Emotions often seem like they are happening TO us, especially negative ones, and that we are powerless over them.Here's the truth: Feelings determine the quality of the life we have and ultimately the results we want in our life. So, if you are starting or growing your business, knowing how to use for feelings for good is EVERYTHING. This is the difference between launching your product in 3 months or being no farther along that you are now. Or getting those first 10 wholesale accounts vs just having one or two.In this episode, I break down what feelings are, why we WANT to feel the full spectrum of emotions, which feelings are useful and not useful and how to use feelings to drive massive action to help you reach your goals.
