We may wish it weren’t true but it is: You can’t control how you feel at any given moment. You CAN however, control your response to how you feel. And you can absolutely learn to control your emotions. When we don’t control our emotions, we run the risk of letting them control us by impacting our choices, decisions, and next moves without our consent. Learning how to control your emotions is a key element of having a tough mind and shifting your mind into the position of driver rather than passenger. The STOPP method is an excellent place to start.
LESSONS: STOPP method for controlling emotions: Stop Take a deep breath Observe Pull back and take perspective Proceed with the next right move Remember, the more you practice the STOPP method during more even-keeled times, the more likely you are to remember to use it during stressful times.
