Emotion is your mind’s intelligent way of telling you what it’s the current perception of any situation or environment is.
Positive emotions in most instances will drive positive thinking and behaviour.
Negative emotions would naturally drive negative thinking and behaviour. It is your choice to use it ‘for fuel’ or ‘for burn’. If you have attended a regular school and your hard work has put you in a lecture room full of students who have been privileged to attend fee-paying schools and lived a life of ‘no worries’, there is the likelihood that you will experience thoughts like………….
‘I don’t fit in’
‘They may not like me’
‘I am different or less’
‘They look down on me’
What you have to say to yourself is……………
‘We may have come in via different routes but our reasons for being here are the same’
‘How we got here might be different but how we leave here is what matters’
‘We are all here for the win’
‘I am a fighter’
‘If I won before, I can win again’
A guy called David Cuschieri once said ‘The mind is a powerful force. It can enslave us or empower us. It can plunge us into the depths of misery or take us to the heights of ecstasy. Learn to use the power wisely’
The wisdom book of proverbs says ‘Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life’ – 4:23
