Can you have emotional mastery without turning into a Vulcan like Mr. Spock from Star Trek?
What is emotional mastery? Is it turning off emotions? Not at all. My expert guest, Dr. Joan Rosenberg shares how you can manage your emotions and control your responses so you are responding and no longer reacting to what is happening in your life.
Whether your trigger is grief, anxiety, fear, or some other unpleasant emotion it comes down to controlling what you are thinking, gaining awareness of your response patterns and managing what happens next.
Rhett Palmer shared this perfect phrase when I was telling him about my guest just before the show, “emotions are like children. we shouldn’t let them drive the car but we also shouldn’t stuff them in the trunk.”
Listen and find out how you can stop stuffing your emotions in the trunk or let out the ones that are in there safely.
