When I water the lawn to make it full, rich and green, I have to turn on the faucet to which the hose and sprinkler are attached. If I don’t open the faucet wide enough, the water pressure is weak, the sprinkler malfunctions and the lawn gets parched and dry. My whole system of watering the lawn requires applying proper water pressure.
Now, let’s apply this matter of pressure to my dreams and aspirations. I must water the ‘thought-seeds of success’ that I plant in my field of consciousness if I intend to have them blossom into their physical counterpart in my life. I’ve got to turn on the emotional faucet with feelings of desire and passion. If I do not exert enough pressure on myself, with the feeling of desire and passion, then I find that I do not take the necessary action required to make those thought-seeds sprout in my world and blossom in my life.
Here is Pressure Tactic #3 of the 5 ways that I turn on my emotional faucet so the feeling of desire and passion exerts the necessary pressure required to motivate me to act effectively.
Pressure Tactic # 3: Get Excited About Daily Challenges

I then remind myself that keeping promises to myself is applying the right and perfect pressure to move me in the right direction and not fall back out of laziness, fear or doubt. I then ask myself, “Do I understand the importance of challenges in my life?” I promptly answer, “Yes, it exerts exactly the kind of pressure that I need to push harder and access more of my potential.”
