Adventures in How to Master and Command the Emotions
Self Help Guide
Some people have adventurous minds that lead them to trouble. The world is filled with many personality types, thus is it any wonder we all have emotional trips. Do you know your identity and personality type? It is important to understand that knowing this information can help you grow and avoid problems later. This puts you in control of the emotions.
For instance, did you know that an adventurous personality type could run into serious problems if they do not recognize their identity? For instance, a thick skin person could later lack guilt of his actions, words, behaviors, etc. A confident person could induce poor judgments in the mind, which could lead to hazards. A forceful person often becomes hostile, since the emotions are in control. Extroverted types could also show hostile behaviors. A rebellious person could lead to anti-authority and an assertive person could become aggressive. As you can see, a balance is necessary to achieve in life.
Balance includes equilibrium. Balance includes poise, sense, stability, steadiness, and the like. On the contrary, if the mind has no balance it will produce instability, and shakiness. This brings you to see that an unbalanced mind and life causes emotions to control.
The best way to train the emotions to work in your favor is to stop and think before acting. If you jump into something it is likely you will feel regret later. This is not always true, however most times it is true.
Training to think
You want to go out with friends on a school night, realizing you have a test tomorrow. The friends plan to stay out late. What should you do? Stop and think. School is education, which leads to goals. If you achieve your goals, you have a sense of accomplishment. This brings in good emotions. If you go out with your friends, you may fail the test after feeling tired the next day. Possibly your friends may feel hurt if you tell them no, however you must realize that your future is more important than a bit of fun.
You have a date. Your date and you go out to dinner and afterwards your date asks you to go to a bar for live entertainment. You go with his decision and dance the night away. Both of you drink alcohol. Did you stop and think? No, because if you did you would see that neither of you are capable of driving. Still, you can think now and consider calling someone to drive you home. As you can see there is always, a choice in some of the decisions we make. Sometimes we do not have choices, however most times we do.
If you think, you will see options and alternatives. You will have a selection of choices and preferences. You will also see variety, wealth, and scales of diversity along the way. This brings a working mind in order. If you are adventurous in nature, you truly want to think about what you do.
For instance, you might decide spontaneously one day to go hunting at an off-season. This puts you at risk of fines and court cost. If you think before acting, you will examine consequences, which is the process of becoming the leader of your own mind. Some people live on the edge of life. They often need adventure and excitement to make them feel lively. The problem is living on the edge of life is interrupting the mind’s growth. Again, you need to think before acting in all areas of your life.
