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 #5 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 # 5: Call Yourself To Task When You Slip Back
By late afternoon, when I feel myself slipping back, I stand up and stand at attention. I tell myself that resilience is precisely what I need right now.

Every one of the tactics I have revealed over the past week exerts just the right amount of pressure on me. These tactics create a forward impetus that allows me to believe wholeheartedly in achieving the dreams and goals that I have promised to myself. What’s great about this kind of positive pressure is that I resign myself to success in spite of any odds that may be against me. Now that’s a feeling of resignation worth having!
