Power Up Passages

Rolling With The Punches.

December 16, 2007.

"Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality."
Earl Nightingale

Life can sometimes feel like a rousing roller coaster ride; a wild and wacky, action packed adventure that constantly tugs at our emotions. One minute we're high as a kite, then not quite as high the next. Up, down and all around, our emotions bounce all over the place throughout the day.

Sometimes the emotions we feel are of the positive variety, sometimes the extreme polar opposite. Big or small, good or bad, positive or negative, our emotions have a huge impact on our lives. More correctly stated, the manner in which we handle our emotions has a huge impact on the lives we lead.

"Feeling sorry for yourself, and your present condition, is not only a waste of energy but the worst habit you could possibly have."
Dale Carnegie

Without question, the way we feel about ourselves and our lives at any given point in time goes a long way in determining how we approach our daily activities. When we're feeling good, life takes on an enhanced sun-splashed aura. We feel positive and optimistic; fully charged from head to toe. Brimming and beaming with self confidence and optimism, there is little we cannot do, little that we cannot accomplish. We can do just about anything; we just KNOW we can!

Yet far too often we allow our negative emotions to get the best of us. In our not so shining moments, when we are feeling depressed, dejected or down in the dumps, our negative emotions can quickly siphon our energy and enthusiasm. Sap it completely out of us.

As a dark doom and gloom rolls over us, it feels as though the sun has stopped shining altogether. Dispirited, disheartened and discouraged, even the slightest problem suddenly appears insurmountable. We barely have the 'oomph' to keep going.

"There can be no transforming of darkness into light and of apathy into movement without emotion."
Carl Jung

Why do we experience such a wide swing of varying emotions? How can we be so up one minute and down the next? Well, for starters, we're only human. And that means we're going to experience an assortment of emotions; powerful emotions that can move mountains and softer, smaller emotions that can bring us to tears.

Additionally, life constantly tests us, sometimes pushing us a little too hard, a little too far. Sometimes we handle it, sometimes we don't. And things quickly fall apart the moment we succumb to our negative emotions. That's why it is so vitally important that we learn to control our emotions by taking complete charge of any situation we face.

"To me there are three things everyone should do every day. Number one is laugh. Number two, spend some time in thought. Number three; you should have your emotions move you to tears. If you laugh, think, and cry, that's a heck of a day."
Jim Valvano

The good news is you don't have to give in to the crazy mood swings in your life. That's right; you can choose to stay on the positive side of the equation, even when things go sour. Too often we attempt to shield ourselves from life's negative moments, hoping they will somehow go away on their own. Sometimes they do, but more often than not, they don't.

Instead of running for cover or cowering in the corner, why not seize control and blast right through these negative emotions the moment they appear? You need to forcefully them on and push them aside, never giving them an opportunity to take hold. By conditioning yourself to overpower negative emotions whenever and wherever they attempt to take over, you get the best of your emotions before than can get the best of you.

You need to fervently embrace your emotions, as they give life meaning, flavor and excitement. Hold tight to your positive emotions, push the negative ones aside, and you'll start making each day count for something truly special. By constantly staying optimistic, positive, and upbeat, you set the table for a positive powered, super sensational day - each and every day of your life.

The Bottom Line: By staying strong, focused and positive, you'll never have to settle for anything less than the best life has to offer.
