How To Handle Your Emotions - As I Learn With Gal Ezra
I'm at a point where I don't really have a moody day. The reason is that I've understood what it is to have a mood and what my emotions are and kind of how to generate a happy emotion, as opposed to getting affected by one little thing that happened, that ruins my mood for hours later.
Now, without getting too technical into it, there's a couple of things that I practice, the first thing I literally practice is that if something happens to me, which I don't like, I really practice to say, look, that happened. Now that it happened, it's in the past, and what's going on now is totally independent of what just happened. So I can create something newly, just that point of view that I can create something newly, because what happened isn't now. So I operate in the now, that's the first thing.
The second thing is to know that I create how I feel. And I practice that all the time. If I want to be happy, I practice being happy. If I'm at a funeral, it makes sense that my emotions that get created are sad. So depending on where I'm at, I recognize that the emotions I'm feeling are created by me and not by someone else. So if I get upset with someone, a moment later, I can create, "okay, I'm in the now", let's put that behind us, we move on.
I can create cheerfulness. If I meet someone new, and I'm kind of tired, but they're new, I want to give them my energy. So I create that energy to give them an enthusiastic greeting. As opposed to "I'm just tired right now".
If I arrive at work, and I didn't get much sleep last night, I'm there. I'm there for my employees. I'm there for my business, and for all of our clients. I give the energy. So practice the idea that you create your emotions.
The third one is that you create your energy. You can generate energy when you want because you can be tired, but then your favorite celebrity walks into the restaurant and you're like, "oh my god!". Where does that energy come from? You created it.
So those are the three things: What happened, happened. You create your emotions, and you create your energy.
Practice those things and I promise it'll help you to not be in a funk and not be in a mood. It'll pump you out of it. Give it a try. Hopefully that helps!
