Harnessing the Power of Feelings and Emotions

Posted by Adam Ward on

It’s not about your feelings, it’s about your determination to accomplish all that you are looking for in life. We know what is good for us and we know what we should be doing, or should not be doing. We know who is toxic to our lives, and we know who we should be surrounding ourselves with.  Why, then, do we not do the things that will make us successful. It’s simple.
