What Feeling have you been Accessing Lately

Feelings of Emotions…

We spend much of our lives focusing on positive emotions that give us warmth, comfort, and pleasure. Of course, these emotions feel great to live in, and these are the ones that we prefer to focus on, right?

But often, the emotions that are most useful to help us grow and change do not feel great at all! This is why we put a buffer to our feelings and emotions in the form of food, alcohol, drugs, porn or social media…and this is detrimental to our personal growth.

Let's look at emotion and courage. Courage does not feel good, and yet it is what we need most of the time to break through and step up. It is the one that helps us do things that push us out of our comfort zone.

Courage is one of the most useful emotions, yet it is uncomfortable. Brene Brown says,

'You can choose courage, or you can choose comfort. You cannot have both.' 

Determination is another useful emotion. Determination does not accompany ease.

Determination is what is needed to get to the other side.

Determination is neither enjoyable nor comfortable. "A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hard work." Colin Powel

Acceptance is another useful emotion. While it is valuable, it too does not feel right. If we want to come to terms with things we can't control, we must embrace acceptance. To accept ourselves means to accept whatever it is; without judgment. Remember, time does not heal everything, but acceptance improves everything.

When you consider the results you want to see in your life, which emotion would be useful to help you get there? Are you willing to feel useful and uncomfortable; both the emotions get there? Are you willing to feel vulnerable? "Vulnerability is not winning or losing; it's having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome.

Vulnerability is not weakness; it's our greatest measure of courage." Brene Brown

There are also useful emotions that feel good. For example, confidence! Not the kind of confidence when you walk into a room thinking you are better than everyone. The kind of confidence when you walk into the room not having to compare yourself to anyone at all. Confidence is to know that you have got your own back and are committed to standing behind your decisions. It's from 'confidence' that we will take risks and do the things we need to do to live up fully in our lives.

Eagerness, excitement, and curiosity are three emotions that feel good and are useful. Curiosity is one of the great secrets of happiness.

"The mind that opens to a new idea never returns to its original size" - Albert Einstein

When we are fully present in our relationship with others, we are curious about what is going on in their brains without any judgment. There is a genuine curiosity about why someone is thinking the way they are feeling.

Emotion is more powerful than reason. Emotion is the driving force behind thinking and reasoning.

Emotional intelligence increases the mind's ability to make confident, brilliant decisions.

No matter the situation, never let your emotions overpower your intelligence.

See you on the inside! #lifecoach #mindsetcoachwebsite
