I am pretty sure there is this one thing that you'd like to make happen in life. Yet, you feel stuck.
You yearn to take that next step, but something is holding you back. I can assure you that it has to do with negative emotions.
Enough is enough.
It's time to become aware of what constraints you, to face it and to let it go. In other words, to build emotional resilience.I summarized the six stages of this process in a cute little booklet.
Emotional agility is about accepting and noticing all your emotions and thoughts, viewing them with compassion and curiosity, and then choosing courage over comfort in order to do whatever you’ve determined is most important to you.
Emotionally agile people are dynamic. They demonstrate flexibility in dealing with our rapidly changing, complex world. They are able to handle high levels of stress and deal with disappointments while remaining engaged, open and receptive.
– Susan David –
I have been a control freak all of my life. The most painful sensation I could imagine was powerlessness. And thus I would suppress this feeling and replace it with its so called counterpart: anger. When my train would be delayed, I would take my anger out on the train crew, instead of treating myself to a cop of coffee and a magazine and enjoy the extra time given to me. Of course, this anger didn’t bring me one second faster to my destination.
Working with Emotional Resilience, I learned how suppressed powerlessness prevented me from becoming a good planner. Because good planning is finding balance between directing and following. Directing I knew how to do, but not allowing myself to go with the flow when the circumstances (and my emotion!) asked for it, has blocked me for years. I was full of great ideas, but they would never manifest in this world.
Now that I allow myself to feel both anger (setting boundaries) ànd powerlessness (being flexible) I have become more effective, productive and organized.
