"You get what you feel
about what you think about."
-- Abraham, Esther Hicks

"Some are beginning to acknowledge: You get what you think about. But we would like to clarify that statement further by saying: You get what you feel about what you think about."
To explain that statement briefly about the subject of money, for example, they continue: "So where are you on the sliding scale of possible vibrations relative to the subject of money? You may often say that you want more money, but if you consistently feel disappointment, or even fear, about not having enough money, then your vibrational offering regarding money does not match your statement of desire."
It doesn't matter what the subject is, whether it is about being overweight, having a bad relationship, children that are not doing what you want them to do, a job that is causing issues, it's all the same. It's about our focus.
They say that we cannot have a happy ending in an unhappy journey. And, for me, that statement really helps put it into perspective. Being unhappy and wanting to be happy are two completely different and opposing feelings.
Those who go to the gym and maintain slim, healthy bodies, are successful at that because they don't go because they want to lose weight, but because they enjoy health. They enjoy the exercise, the movement, the feeling during and afterward. They feel good. If they went with the feeling that they hated doing it, their program would fail very quickly.
We need to find a way to feel good about what we want while giving little or no attention to where we are now if we are not where we want to be. And, we will know where we are by how we feel. We could be saying what we want, thinking of what we want, but if our feelings don't match what we want, it isn't going to be what we say we want. Our feelings tell us whether we are in alignment with our desire or not.
So, a better way is to get happy first! Then move. Know what we want and feel that excitement and enthusiasm about what we want, then act. Focus on where we are going and not on where we are now.
