What does this mean?
Means your Emotions are stronger than your thoughts.
Positive thinking is great but it is not enough as you may have experienced in your own Life where you attempt to make a change by thinking positive, but somehow after a short time you snap back to where you were in your feelings or your behaviour or you patterns…
Have you experienced this before?
It is because an Emotion is more impacting that thoughts alone as you will discover as you read on, therefore you either …
Control them or, be Controlled ‘by’ them – unfortunately there is no 3rd option here.
You either set up your Emotional being in such a way that it Empowers you and thus your Life, by dealing with limiting Emotional factors and changing them to Empowering ones that support you in being all that you can be.
Or, the Emotional pre-set you have in this very moment in real time as you are reading these words, will dictate and determine the direction you will be going in 10 seconds time – all the way – up to the end of your Life.
Challenge with this 2nd approach is that ‘you’ did not set things up, your environment, your growing up, influence from others etc… did and so this is a random and unorganised conflicting set of wiring that is not conducive to moving forwards.
Stagnation or side ways movement in Life or only intermittent forward movement, is usually the result when this is the case.
If you want to be free from Emotional restraint and constraint, so that you are in control and empowered, not in reaction, you must break the limiting Emotional patterns that currently hold you back in your Life.
If right now you feel nervous in public and want instead to feel / experience Confidence in public, then this can easily be done. You can go from being in reaction to being in control. Emotional Coaching is a way to facilitate that shift.
If something happened to you many years back that was an unpleasant experience and it negatively effects you in some way still to this day, then this can be changed. You don’t have to be at the mercy of your past.
Why Are Emotions SO Powerful?
Think about it this way, have you …
Ever been in Love?
Ever been Scared?
Ever been Nervous?
Ever had a full on belly laugh?
Ever been Overwhelmed either by a problem or with Joy?
Ever felt over-Confident?
Then you already know how much they affect you.
Compare those experiences above to just having singular thoughts in your head in any moment – we would like to believe that our intellect is what drives us but the reality is – that it IS our Emotions that rule. They control for the most part – our behaviours and thus actions.
A thought to do something is not as strong as the ‘urge’ to do that same something, thinking yourself in to being calm whilst your Heart is beating like the clappers because your scared is not going to work – this is all indicative of our Emotions being King.
You may intellectually know that a bridge or a red jumper or a walking in front of a crowd for example is nothing to be scared off yet, you will still uncontrollably react nervously when you are near a bridge, or you suddenly see a red jumper or you are asked to walk in front of the room of people.
Nothing is more important that how you feel. NOTHING.
