Controlling EmotionsApr 25th, 2008 | By Glen Mollett | Category: Success Tips, Techniques, Thinking Skills
Do you have Controlling Emotions? Do your emotions control you or are you a servant to them?
Change the thoughts you think and you will change which emotions you experience, it really is as simple as that. We must be aware of what thoughts we are thinking that are causing negative emotions and then we can master them.
It is every individual’s responsibility to choose positive emotions that enrich their lives and the lives of those they come into contact with. It is the ability to do this which gives us complete control over the quality of our life experience.
My 2 year old son Oliver has begun his first experience of using emotions to communicate his feelings and desires, to discover his boundaries of what is right from wrong. We spend most of our childhood learning how to use them and take them to greater limits throughout our teenage years.
As adults we assume we have them under control but do we, actors & actresses and public facing business people for example value these skills as the tools of their trade and actively train themselves to refine them.
We try to understand them but we are rarely taught how to use them towards achieving our goals, if we were to take some time to imagine how we could use these incredible skills, they will become a strong tool kit for building a life with success.
Thinking ourselves into an emotional state of mind is a natural process that generally occurs automatically, if we were to identify the emotional state we need for a specific objective we can quite easily create that mood and frame of mind in a matter of minutes, just ask any teenager who is trying to get their own way with their parents.
We instinctively know what triggers our emotions and can feel one coming on when we react to a certain influence or situation. To be in fear or in sadness, maybe grumpy or angry, even vengeful or filled with complete happiness, we do have total control of them and we shouldn’t take that for granted.
One thing we must never forget is that we can switch between them with the speed of a changing thought or expression. If we apply the emotions that give us strong positive results they will cast a beaming light of defiantness to our purpose.
If you want a life with success then Controlling Emotions is a skill you would find it hard to be without.
