Driving Toward States of Excellence: Who decides how you’re feeling?

So many of us live and act as if our emotions are out of our control. We say stuff like, “You made me irritated” or “I feel twitchy around my chief” as if these sensations happen outside of our control. Some feelings are indeed out of our control, such as the terror one would feel if suddenly challenged by a thief. Or, the discouragement one might feel if fired from a job surprisingly. I do not suggest that it's usually possible to be in a state of joy no matter what occurs globally. However , we do suggest that we have much more power over our emotional state than most individuals think.

How many emotions do you typically experience over the course of a day? How many are you able to name? A few people report experiencing some emotions on a consistent basis,eg happiness, fear and anger. Still others may constrain themselves by outing all of their feelings into classes. They are saying, “I feel really nice” or “I feel bad” and this is the scale of their emotional awareness.

There are others who've got a broad range of emotions open to them. On any particular day they may experience numerous emotions. They may distinguish among contentment, joy, ecstasy, mirth, awe, delight, and so on. They may experience anger, exasperation, frustration, defensiveness, rage, etc…Their range of emotions is intensive.

We believe that having a big range of emotive reactions available to us makes us more flexible. The more we are able to distinguish among and access a variety of psychological states, the more prepared we are going to be to meet the dynamic demands of life that we take on ourselves.

It can take some time to develop emotional adaptability. When we've been living our lives for years only being conscious of 1 or 2 states, it can take time and a lot of effort to break out of this rut. Here is where NLP, or Neuro Linguistic Programming, is a handy tool as it teaches you to develop emotional suppleness by identifying and accessing a good spread of states.

Start by making a listing of a good spread of emotive states you need in your repertoire. List them. Outline them. Then, find express examples of them in your private history. Remember those times and realize you've got access to a broad and deep range of experiences. Then, plan to incorporate them into your present life. This is the key to building your emotional vocabulary.
