Rob dives into what could trigger your emotions and gives some top tips on how to manage them and stop them affecting your future success and enable you to be the best version of yourself!
-Most important factor in your entrepreneurship or business that will determine your success or failure is how you manage and master your emotions.
- Emotions are triggered by your previous experiences which have formed and created an emotional response or reaction. It is not a conscious thought, it is an unconscious reaction to the environment or people.
-You are not your emotions, your emotions are reactions and feedback to the environment and places and people. They are also your past experiences appearing as a feeling.
-If your emotions hijack you, you end up becoming a ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ type personality, whereby when you’re logical and not triggered you are acting based on your own pure thoughts and actions and desires. However, when you become triggered and emotional you become a non-true version of you.
-Mastering your emotions is understanding what they are and how they’re triggered, and then controlling and managing them.
-When you experience people, you don’t experience them as they are. You experience them as you are, through your own emotional response to them. This is not your conscious mind, this is your unconscious mind or your body-mind.
-Your reactions to your clients, critics, staff and partners are all based on your past experiences being dragged into the present and therefore are affecting your future and this is not the truth.
-Managing your emotions is:
Step 1: Notice when you get triggered.
Step 2: Understand where that emotion came from.
Step 3: Understand that that is happening to others.
-Significant emotional events in your past are triggering your present and dictating your future. If you let the emotions get the better of you, then you’re letting the past dictate the present which will ruin the future.
-Never make important decisions when you are emotional. Always make them when you are logical, calm and not triggered. Learn to smile, be calm and still and walk away.
