"By all means, marry. If you get a good wife, you'll become happy; if you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher." ~ Socrates
One morning at a doctor's clinic a patient arrives complaining of serious back-pain. The doctor examines him and asks him" OK, what happened to your back?" The patient replies "You know that I work for a local night club? This morning I got home to my apartment early and heard a noise in my bedroom. On entering I knew someone had been with my wife and the balcony door was open. I rushed out the balcony door and did not find anyone. As I looked down from the balcony I saw a man running out and he was dressing himself. I grabbed the fridge and threw it at him, That's how I strained my back"
The 2nd patient arrives looking as if he has been in a car wreck. The doctor said "My previous patient looked bad, but you look terrible.. What the hell happened to you?" He replied, "You know I have been unemployed for a while now .Today was the first day at my new job. I forgot to set my alarm and was running late.. I was running out of the building, getting dressed at the same ti me, and you won't believe it but I was hit by a fridge."
The 3rd patient arrives; he looks even worse than the other two patients do. The doctor is shocked. Again asks, "What the hell happened to youuuuuu......?" "Well I was sitting in a fridge & someone threw it from the 3rd floor"

What keeps most people stuck? It is the underlying assumption that
we don't have what we need. It is the idea that we're missing
something. We need more of everything - you name it, we need it:
more time, money, energy, information, certainty, resources.
Without these, we tell ourselves, we can't do what we want to do.
This perception that there is something missing or we don't have
what we need to create what we want is the biggest source of
unhappiness and dissatisfaction in the world today. It is also the
greatest lie we tell ourselves. It causes us to dream about
"becoming" something big, to hold out for doing that one big thing
that is so big that we can't see a way to do it, let alone get
We have fallen in love with the idea of becoming more than we are,
and that very belief keeps us stuck were we are. We are on an
endless search for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, all
the while not realizing that we are standing on the pot of gold.
Many people travel their entire lives on this journey, believing
they will find true happiness when they finally get somewhere when,
in fact, they are lost right where they are.
The reason people find themselves getting stuck is because they
don't think who they are is enough - enough to get that promotion,
enough to close that next big account, enough to be financially
independent. This causes us to resist the way things are for the
way we want them to be in the future.
Before you can create your future, you have to accept the way you
are right now. You have everything you need right now.
Here is an analogy:
People living in scarcity and struggle see the cup as half empty.
People who are positive thinkers see the cup as half full.
People who understand their true connection to Source Energy see
the cup as overflowing. But people who are living in the Flow and
in Alignment know they ARE the cup.
What's keeping you from seeing yourself as "The Cup"?
Today will bring you a new awareness, a lesson or a manifestation
that you are making progress - IF YOU LOOK FOR IT! No matter how
large or small, please record it. It will only take a few moments
and will AUTOMATICALLY put you in the Flow.

The word emotion has come from the Latin word 'emovere' which means 'to move'. Something which moves us is an emotion. Centuries ago when man was a caveman, all of his survival decisions were based on emotions. Neo-cortex or the thinking brain was not developed and learning was purely emotional. Simplest of decisions were driven by emotional memory like whether to stay in particular place based on what happened there yesterday, if he was attacked by predators there, fight or flight?. Learning was all based on emotions stored in 'Amygdala' (part of brain responsible for processing emotions and storing them, otherwise called 'feeling brain'). As human beings evolved, neo-cortex or new brain got developed. New-cortex is mainly responsible for thinking (logic/reasoning). In other words, it's called the 'thinking brain'. However evolution of new brain in no way discards the importance of Amygdala or the 'feeling brain'. Even after centuries the way our brain works- we still FEEL before we think!
Let's look at the simplest of decisions you make day in and day out. For instance, you have to make a decision on whether to take stairs or the elevator to go down from second floor. Most people will press the button for elevator and then take the stairs! Surprised? Well that's purely because this is the way our brain functions. It's the feeling that comes first, somewhere in your feeling brain you have the memory of comfort associated with elevators and that makes you press the button without any thought. However when you get down to waiting, you realize and reason you could very well take the stairs as its only second floor. That's how emotions govern smallest of decisions to biggest of challenges in life.
When you are making biggest decisions of your life, no matter how strong the facts, if something is not feeling right, chances are you won't go for it. How one is feeling when he/she enters the boardroom more or less decides how he/she is going to look at the figures presented, points raised, perspectives shared. If one is upbeat or happy in general, while discussing the possibilities or new business opportunities he or she will generally look at things presented in a positive manner and vice versa. There was a recent article in Harvard Business Review on how one feels while entering a business meeting dictates the course of meeting and decisions made.
Emotions are body's manifestation of information received and processed, simply ignoring them has helped no one. They are to be understood and managed, which we all know is easier said than done. Emotions have lot of energy ( positive and negative), anyone who is angry and want to thump the table knows it, anyone who feels furious and wants to scream or cry out loud knows it, anyone jumping with joy knows it. It is this energy in different emotions we want to harness and channel which can only happen once we are able to perceive, assess and manage emotions of ourselves and those of others. That's Emotional Intelligence is all about!
