Awareness of Your Own Feelings

People like to follow someone they can emulate.

Sometimes, our feelings can get the best of us. Someone will say something rude and we’ll snap. Someone will do something stupid and we’ll go batshit crazy. Sure, we may be justified to act that way but that is not how you create influence.

People like to follow someone they can emulate. They like their role models to be perfect. This is an impossible standard, so we shouldn’t strive for perfection.

We should strive for learning.

What we should strive for is progress. We should strive for learning.

One of the things we should have is an awareness of our own feelings.

When you’re feeling like you are about to snap at someone, immediately acknowledge that feeling. “I’m mad and I want to punch this guy.” Next, breath in and out 3 times. Do it slowly and count 1 2 3, 3 2 1 each cycle. This will make you calmer. By this time, you are now less likely to snap since you now have a grasp on your emotion.

You can still add the next step which is about the alternative action. Think about the things you can do instead. You can walk away, you can calmly talk to the person, or you can do the initial reaction you had. But before you make a decision, make sure that you know the consequences of your action.

Action Guide:

1 – Practice having awareness of your own feelings. Whenever you’re in some kind of situation, acknowledge the feeling that you have and breath in & out 3 times. Manage your emotions well so you won’t regret the consequences of your actions later.
