You have the power to control your thoughts and emotions.
How to control your thoughts and emotions
Who decides what you think?
How you think determines your feelings
that means it is up to you how you feel and react.
You have the choice of how you want to feel because you control your thoughts and your feelings. It does do not need extended training to change it, that will happen in an instant.
First, determine how you feel, whether you are anxious, angry or jealous?
Now, ask yourself: How would I like to feel?
Ask yourself: How do I decide to feel?
These questions should make you aware that you have the choice. You are not at the mercy of your feelings, but you are influencing them by your thoughts.
Negative thoughts or feelings may come to you out of the blue, but when they are there, you have the choice whether you stay with them or you change them.
Now ask yourself: How should I or could I feel, to make me feel like I want to feel?
Let’s look at an example.
Suppose you walk through the city, and suddenly something hits you, which makes you stumble.
You turn around annoyed and see a blind kid who had stumbled and fell on you.
What will happen to your anger?
It immediately will disappear in one second. Your anger will blow away, and you feel calm and compassionate.
In this example, you can see how quick feelings can change in an eye blink. You can see that attitudes can change quickly and it does not take days or weeks to react calmly. You can use this fact to change your negative feelings.
When was the last time you have been annoyed and how long did the emotions last?
Let’s say you want to meet with a friend. He comes half an hour late, and you are annoyed. Now you can decide if you’re going to stay upset all the time or forget and forgive and enjoy the day with him.
You have decided to take the matter calmly; you realize that people are not perfect and that mistakes happen. Making mistakes is human and cannot be avoided.
If you now think about your friend being late and letting you wait for, your rage vanishes. You ask him to be punctual the next time
You transformed you feeling of anger into serenity, composure, by changing your attitude.
By changing your thoughts, you have changed your feelings.
