Thoughts vs Feelings

(Last Updated On: March 26, 2018)

Thus far, GoatLyfe has emphasized the importance of positive thinking. Having positive thoughts will change the way you see the things, people, and circumstances around you. Your changed perceptions change the way you treat and react to the world, in turn changing the way it reacts to you. Positive thinking however is not a cure-all. You can think all the positive thoughts you want and still feel like shit. Eventually, your feelings will win over. 

It follows that positive thoughts work best when used as a supplement to positive feelings. How do we generate positive feelings? There are probably many convoluted nu-age jedi mind tricks you can use to feel good but here we’ll cover the two most powerful and impactful real-world techniques to maximize positive emotions.


The value of diet, exercise, and lifestyle is extremely under-appreciated. What you put in your body affects your mental state in more ways than you may realize. If you’re serious about feeling good, you need to be exercising regularly and eating organic, whole foods. A good place to start is The UltraMind Solution by Dr. Mark Hyman. There’s a range of lifestyle choices you make everyday like consuming bread and sodas even all the way to what you do before bed that could be having a significant impact on your mood and energy. Dr. Hyman’s book explain why and how to fix it. Regardless, do your research, find healthy foods you enjoy, start working out, devote yourself to health, & most importantly consult your physician or other qualified health provider before beginning any diet and/or exercise program!


Take massive action. Start making moves, NOW! When you don’t feel good, taking action can be the hardest thing in the world but you have to force it (using technique one will make it a lot easier). Start the business you’ve always wanted to, ask out that special someone, get a new job, enroll in Salsa classes – anything! The more action you take the more momentum you’ll build and the easier it will be to make bigger and bigger moves. You will inevitably see results from taking action which will give you more positive feelings than you’ll know what to do with, but you must be persistent and never let down! Take the largest possible step towards action you can right this moment. It could be as simple as getting out of bed and going for a walk or cracking open that book that’s been gathering dust on your bedside table. You don’t even had to read it, just open it. It will get easier with time, just keep at it!

Lastly, grab yourself a GoatLyfe MINIGOAT Shirt, because it makes taking action way easier.
