Your Emotions Have Been Lying To You

Posted: 25-Oct-2013    Category: Inspiration, Psychology

Happy, sad. Hurt, joyful. Sympathetic, vengeful.

We all have them, and most of us are completely at their mercy. However, as powerful as emotions are, they should never control us. 

Why? Because emotions are nothing more than an extension of our thoughts. The way we think defines the way we feel.

This is not meant to devalue your emotions, but to give you power over them. 

It’s not always easy – some emotions are very strong – but by systematically changing the way we think, we can ultimately change the way we feel. 

This, in turn, can empower us in our relationships and our business, which can change the entire course of our lives.

  1. We all have emotions. They are natural responses to everyday occurrences.
  2. Emotions are normal. We are all going to feel happy, sad, angry and everything in between.
  3. Emotions can be changed. Emotions are a response to how we think. If we change our thought patterns, we can change our emotional responses.

Thoughts create our emotions. Therefore, our emotions cannot be used to prove our thoughts are accurate. In other words, feelings are not facts. We can change our feelings by changing our thinking.

Most anxiety in life stems from illogical thinking. We can release this anxiety by changing the way we think.

Ultimately, feelings are like mirrors of our thoughts. When allowed to go unchecked, they become like a House of Mirrors at the carnival, distorting the truth to frightening proportions.
