When we care about something, usually we feel the need to protect it in anyway possible. There is no higher form of flattery then the wanting of closeness between you and whatever it is you hold dear.
What keeps this concept in our reality?
How does the emotion work?
Why is it needed?
Reasons for the Soul
Is it our selfish minds which create this need, so we don’t lose something that is close to us?
Does our selflessness keep begging for more to be done for others?
Knowing which reason drives a decision can help identify why we do things, so we can do them better. If we are familiar with our inspiration, then our resolve will harden to a point of no return. Nothing will have the ability to discourage us from becoming the people we want to be. The same principle applies when you love someone you are willing to work toward a healthy decision between the one you love and yourself.
Everyone one of us has the power to do the right thing, but if you take a nap because your lazy and not because you want to be able to accomplish more the rest of the day; then the results will differ and nothing will be keeping you afloat besides your selfishness. We can do so much more by tapping into the power of the positive reasons behind our actions. Just like a car runs better on gas then soda, we are more productive with the right motives guiding our lives.
