Are a lot like waves.
They move and they move you.
The thing to do is to stand apart and observe yourself as you wade through them.
Tough ? Yes…initially.
Once the strong physical reactions recede…the mind works. It barely takes a minute or two to overcome the shaking knees or the incessant swallowing. And then the mind takes over…and it works better, faster and cleaner when you are going through these powerful emotions than it does at most other times.
So the next time you are intensely disappointed or sad or angry or embarrassed or afraid… let it wash over you. Stand back and observe. And then reap the benefits of the powerful workings of your mind.
Do not suppress, divert or react. Observe and take the best decisions of your life.
