Well, that is pretty obvious, I guess. For everyone knows that in order to get to the top of the mountain you will have to either walk, climb, or have a helicopter drop you off. In other words, some form of action will be required from you. No action, no results. That's all there is to it.

However, many of us find it difficult to take action. particularly when the mood is low and negative, and everything seems like hard work. Well, we live in a dualistic universe and no matter how much you try to only see the bright side, there are times when this is simply not possible. After all, when you feel down, you only know about it because you know what it is like to be happy. You only know that you do not have enough money, because you know what it is like to have enough and you only know what being healthy is like if you have experienced both health and being unwell.

You may not like it but the above are just facts of our existence. Once you can accept this life will be much easier to handle, because at good and bad are just realities you make up in your mind.

Basically we as the human race have two problems that make it very difficult for us to make headway smoothly and seamlessly:

First we think we are hard done by when things do not go our way, the economy is in dire straights, our partners behave in ways we object to or whatever else it is that displeases us, and secondly we focus on all those insignificant many problems which then become huge.

At this point we feel that bad and it becomes very difficult to take any action, however small.

Procrastination sets in and before you know it you are so confused by the mental overload that even making simple decisions is a major struggle. Energy needs to flow and whenever you get stuck mentally, your thinking is the main reason why you are stuck and the energy meridians of your body get clogged, literally toxifying your entire system. When you are in this mental trap its like pouring acid out inside your body.The negativity eats away and feeds on itself, paralysing you.

Whichever way you look at your life, in order to get results you need three things, you cannot get away from this fact. These things are :Thoughts, emotion, (passion) and action.

Those of you who have read my articles before know my mantra: Clean up your thinking, because only clean thinking produces clean results.Expand your cognitive awareness and you will see much more of yourself and your world. This means that you will have more choices.

So if you want to get to the top of the mountain, make sure that your thinking is clean and in line with your desired outcome, If your thinking is congruent and clean you will be able to feel it in your body: The emotions will be powerful, positive and compel you to, yes, you got it, act.

You can fuel your resolve and put that tiger of inspiration in your mental tank in many ways. The fuel of knowledge is like a mountain: The higher you are the more you see and appreciate. One of the fuels you might want to use to deliver you from the shackles of emotional constipation is Micro EFT. It is probably the easiest tool to learn and use around. It will soon set you free from procrastination and lead you to the top of the mountain.
