Fill Up Your Tank with Appreciation and Commitment

How do we keep our inner fire alive? Two things, at minimum, are needed: an ability to appreciate the positives in our life, and a
commitment to action. Every day, it is important to ask, and to answer, these two questions: “What’s good in my life?” and “What needs to be done?” — Nathaniel Branden

Inner Fire - Commitment Appreciation

I have found there is a very different quality to my action when it springs from a sense of abundance as opposed to a feeling of being impoverished. When I sense I am not good enough, or that I don’t have enough, I feel driven to be better and to have more. Whatever I do takes effort. There’s an element of struggle involved. And this makes sense because there is no fuel. I am working on an empty tank.

When I am feeling abundant, I act out of my own inspiration. I am rich and full and so the energy flows naturally. This action at times feels almost effortless. It is important to remember that we don’t need money to be abundant. All we need is appreciation of all that we have.

…what I focus on in life is what I get. And if I concentrate on how bad I am or how wrong I am or how inadequate I am, if I concentrate on what I can’t do and how there’s not enough time in which to do it, Isn’t that what I get every time? And when I think about how powerful I am, and when I think about what I have left to contribute, and when I think about the difference I can make on this planet, then that’s what I get. You see, I recognize that it’s not what happens to you; it’s what you do about it. — W. Mitchell
