Chapter 27: Emotions



Emotions and feelings are your internal compass silently directing your life. Emotions is a big part of what makes us human by being able to experience a wide variety of emotions such as happiness, sadness, anger, fear, disgust, surprise and contempt. These variety of emotions come and go throughout our life journey from times of brief happiness to the deepest sadness. Emotions and feelings can either be positive or negative relative to the emotion we feel at the time and the events happening in our life.



Have you ever been in a rut? When life got repetitive, mundane, boring and same old. When you just went through the motions and experienced very little emotion. We have all been their and will all go through those stages in life. On the other hand, have you experienced times in your life when things are happening and coming together, and you feel amazing? Things are new, upbeat and you are on the go and feeling happy. I’m sure you have had moments in life like this? Compare the two situations and notice how you reacted with your body. How was your posture? Hunched over or standing straight? The pace your walk? Slow or Fast. The look on your face? Frown or Smile. You see when we experience emotions and moments of happiness our body follows suit in a similar motion. Emotion and Motion are connected deeply just like the Yin and Yang, sun and the moon.


Naturally your emotions will flow outwardly through your motion, but you can also do the opposite and create positive emotions by first controlling your motion. A small example will show you the power motion has over emotion. Right now, drop down to the ground and 20 pushups. It should take you 30 seconds. Do it now. Seriously do it. Ok now you have done 20 pushups, do you feel your blood pumping? Heart rate accelerating? Do you feel alittle bit better? Or go for a workout, lift some weights, go for a run, a bike ride or even for a walk and see how your motion effects your emotions and feelings. Start practicing a few simple little tricks such as sitting up straight, walking tall, walking faster and smiling for no reason and notice the changes in your emotion.



Set yourself up to win by attaching strong emotions to your dreams. By breaking your dream down into a goals, and goals down to tasks. Create that winning feeling by rewarding yourself when you hit mini milestones on the way to your dreams. Make winning and working hard towards your dream rewarding and pleasurable. Also harness the power that comes with negative emotions to propel you to take action. Becoming angry with yourself, when you let your standards slip is a useful way to get back on track. Using the emotion disgust as leverage to create massive change is a strong tool and technique winners use to reach their dreams. Feeling deeply the strong negative emotion such as sadness can make you take new actions to generate more happiness in your life. Overcoming your fears is a sign of growth and development through your journey of life. Set yourself up to win by using your internal compass of emotions to direct your life to the direction of your dreams.
