“All The Feels” We are human magnets.

Host Cj Staples, Life Coach, author and founding member of the So, do it! Society

You’re working it.

You’re hustling.

You’ve got your nose to the grind stone, acting on your goals.

So, why do you feel like you’re not getting anywhere any time soon? Have you asked yourself how you want to feel?

True, feelings don’t pay bills! But, they are a type of fuel that does influence your thinking, your choices, and your actions. Host, Cj Staples wants you to bring awareness to your feelings and whether they are boosting your efforts, or dragging you down.

“We are like magnets, and what we think, how we behave is how we attract our right life… we are human magnets!”
— CJ STAPLES
Old stories die hard. Do you have a story, an experience, a thought running in the background of your mind on automatic pilot? Cj Staples wants you to consider that there are feelings behind it, and they’re underlying your daily actions. Those feelings are influencing your magnetism, and thereby what is being drawn into your daily life!

Here is an example of an Old Story. Say, your mom was a child of the Great Depression whose default reply was, ‘I can’t afford…’ Her experience of lack created a story about what she could afford, and that story stayed with her (and you) for years. Consider possible feelings under that story: pinched, deprived, out of (her) control, and self-sacrifice.

What about your thoughts (story) about resources, money, financial flow? Are any feelings like those perhaps fueling your story about finances and your ability to afford your goals? Are they helping you, or hindering you?

Cj shares that a key way to disarm our old stories is to consider what feelings we want to prioritize and make a practice of developing, nurturing, and focusing on choices that will create them. In other words, if we are magnets, let’s be intentional with how they’re tuned!

The So, Do It! Society aims to provide a safe space for its members to explore ideas and discuss sparks of insight.

In this show, Cj and Society Members discuss:

  • What it means to choose how we feel and why it matters.
  • Favorite authors who have written about the power of feelings behind our thoughts and actions.
  • Core Words and when it’s time to re-evaluate them.
  • How to act “as if” to practice and build momentum toward your desired feelings.
  • What are some words that describe feelings group members want as their Core Feelings to “tune their magnets?”

    For Cj, a Core Word has been Affluence, because it conveys freedom to her: freedom to support things she loves, like a solar- and wind-powered house at some point, and travel. Affluence, to her, as a goal feeling, brings a sense of peace, clarity, and joy. Others in the group discussed Flow, Completion, Joy, and Inner Peace as their Core Words.

    Once you’re aware of your Core Words – those 3-5 feelings you want to live with daily – the next step is to commit to bring your awareness to them. Some tools for doing this include:
