The flip side of Negative emotion
What if every negative emotion had a positive alternative and what if our job is to find that positive that will move us forward?
1. Helplessness - lets say an exciting idea jumped into my mind - I want to invent this, travel there, achieve this, this is my dream. Almost instantly that thought of “oh, I can’t do this” - kick in the stomach. It is painful. What if, in that second, I could choose to say “wait a minute.. lets choose differently” instead, I’d say - what one little thing can I do now to go in that general direction. Immediately the negative emotion disappears. At that moment, add a positive spice into the soup - some faith, some hope, and some confidence in who you are.
2. Jealousy - oh how my mind is prone to go to that emotion. I’ve lost some good friends over that emotion, cause I couldn’t bare that pain of hearing about their success. No more, brainy! from now on, every time this emotion snicks in I ask “which dream am I giving up on?” or better - “how can I better define my next goal to accomplish something (as small as it may be) in that realm of my world.”
* remember that small steps are important, and also might be pleasurable. All big things have been accomplished with small (human) steps. so we must make them with passion and belief.
