Edge – Emotions


Being Able to Name Emotions Helps You Manage Them. Have you ever noticed that you often don’t know what you feel? Do you sometimes feel like you’re walking around in an emotional fog, knowing that you feel bad or upset, but not being able to really name the emotion you’re feeling? If you don’t know what emotion you’re feeling, it’s really hard to do anything about that emotion or to help yourself tolerate it. Once you can put a name on an emotion, you can often figure out what to do about it.

ConcernedSELF-SABOTAGING BEHAVIORS There are three types of people in this world: the “wills,” the “won’ts,” and the “can’ts.” The first type accomplish everything. The second oppose everything. The third fail at everything. People who accomplish much certainly are competent, but their attitude also makes a huge difference. A positive attitude will definitely help you avoid being part of the second group. And if you learn how to handle failure correctly, you’ll be able to keep yourself out of the third group.

fam 2Two men were out fishing. When the fish stopped biting, they started to talk. One man praised his wife and extolled her many virtues, summing it up by saying, “You know, if all men were like me, they would all want to be married to my wife.” “And if they were like me,” the other replied, “none of them would want to be!” Everybody’s different. Each person is born a unique individual. We’re all as different as our fingerprints. That’s true even of siblings born of the same parents and brought up in the same household. Even twins who are genetically identical have distinct personalities. Your personality type—your natural “wiring”— impacts your attitude. That’s not to say that you’re trapped by your personality, because you’re not. But your attitude is certainly impacted by it.

Angery_small_boyHave you ever heard someone say, “Attitude is everything”? It seems to be a favorite line of some motivational speakers. According to them, a great attitude is all you need to be successful. Unfortunately, it’s simply not true.

So does a good attitude make any difference? Absolutely. Attitude is the difference maker! Attitude isn’t everything, but it is one thing that can make a difference in your life. Businessman, philanthropist, and author W. Clement Stone stated, “There is little difference in people, but the little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.”
