Emotional Control



“You’ll never cross an emotional bridge, if you keep rushing back to the other side.”
T.F. Hodge

For many, negative thinking is a habit, which over time, becomes an addiction. A lot of people suffer from this affliction because negative thinking is addictive to the mind, the body, and the emotions..


You will be amazed by how many negative emotions you feel are a automatic reaction. We have trained ourselves to reach for ‘negative emotions’ as a way of defending against our bigger insecurities.

Like any addiction, negative thinking gathers momentum with daily use. You may be a person who has been predominantly thinking negative thoughts since your childhood, so now it has become a habit, an established way of thinking.

Negative emotions bind us to recurring negative thoughts, creating cycles of downright negative patterns. Whenever you are confronted with an emotion which is making you feel or think something bad, force it out of your mind and replace it with a different thought. Imagine the ideal solution to your problem happening, think about someone who makes you happy or remember an event that maked you smile.

If you find that you are constantly dissatisfied and complaining about what you have not yet achieved, or your situation. Try instead to look for something positive underneath your complaints.

So often we tend to live as if our lives are determined by circumstances that are outside of our control. This passive stance towards life leads us to the feeling that we are victims of circumstance or fate.

So often we can tend to get so used to things happening to us that we forget that we can control our own lives. We do not need to be at the mercy of our moods and feelings; instead, we can begin to learn to recognise them and take control.

Every happening of our lives, whether good or bad, serves a higher purpose. Wisdom means being able to see past the moment and discern the greater meaning of any given situation. You may not understand it in the beginning, but as time goes by, you will begin to see the bigger picture falling into perfect place.

Being able to change your thoughts and reactions will build your confidence in your own ability to cope. With practice, you will be able to turn negatives into positives and, each time, gain emotional satisfaction.

‘Take control of your consistent emotions and begin to consciously and deliberately reshape your daily experience of life.’
Tony Robbins
