The problem is we got ďConditioned LogicĒ Ė ďlogicĒ transferred to us by society: friends, family, schools, college,repparttar media, religion etc. We took it all on and felt we had to behave in a ďconditionedĒ way. The repetition of that conditioning is fine for a while, but when we end up doing something we donít love, each time we do it takes a little ofrepparttar 137614 soul away. Let me put it another way.

What gives yourepparttar 137615 power to succeed is what you perceive to be logic. Real power is not necessarily doing what society dictates. Real power is often something else. It is that knowing that comes from nowhere to tell you, you must do something different.

It might seem logical to haverepparttar 137616 house,repparttar 137617 car,repparttar 137618 private education,repparttar 137619 holiday, but is it powerful. What is powerful is, to say I am not happy and things must change; Iím not killing myself for forty-eight weeks just for four weeks of pleasure; Iím not excited by my work and Iím willing to live in a smaller home if it means I can have more peace, less stress and fall back in love with my partner.

Itís not all aboutrepparttar 137620 stuff, is it? Itís about happiness and love; happiness and love of your partner; happiness and love of your children and family; happiness and love of your work. If you have that then you have it all.

Now thatísrepparttar 137621 power to succeed!

Does your current way of living support that?

Best wishes
