Emotions are the driving force behind the overwhelming majority of our actions. There are some emotions that we can control and others that we unfortunately can’t. The good news is that there is a way to channel your emotions and use them towards your advantage.

Of course many like to hid this information because of the money they make on selling books that depict this but as usual we enjoy helping our readers and making them understand better.

As humans, our minds experience 5 basic emotions: fear, love, sadness, anger and joy. To accomplish your goals it is imperative that you harness your emotions and prevent them from overwhelming your rational thought. Decisions based completely on emotion are often ill advised and fare poorly.

Fear

We all experience fear, but it is important to never let fear overwhelm you. Fear can indeed be motivating if you approach it correctly. To do so you must use the object of your fear to as a motivator to work harder. Take in the unsettling feeling and use it as a rocket to propel you high rather than drag you down.

Love

Love is generally thought of as a positive emotion, particularly because of Hollywood and Zac Efron, but it isn’t often associated with success so closely. Love for other people is of course great and will create great chemistry and relationships, but that will do little to aid in your pursuit of success. The truth about love is you need to focus all of it on your profession, craft or line of work. This is essential. Your love for what you do will allow your passion to blossom, and when you are subject to great hardship, you’ll be able to persevere.

Sadness

Sadness is one of the emotions that is notably difficult to manage. This being said, there is a way to use this emotion advantageously as well. Your desire to end your sadness and unwillingness to all the contributing factors to reoccur will push you to ensure you don’t end up in the same position. Also, sadness itself is a reflective emotion, so if this emotion inspires you to contemplate why a given scenario went sour, you can come out ahead. Think hard upon what you could have done better, and how you’ll improve when you’re given another opportunity.

Anger

Sadness was hard enough to deal with, but you’ll be surprised how important anger is to success. I know it sounds crazy, but without anger there would be seldom few successful people in this world. The trick is harnessing the anger correctly. Unleashing your anger on the gym or when you get home is not the correct way. The correct way would be to put that anger to work, letting it drive you to only work harder and conquer what ultimately initially angered you. Use your angry to seek revenge and prove others wrong.

Joy

Passion brings joy as we all know. If you enjoy what you’re doing then work doesn’t tends to feel like a hobby. You won’t have to force yourself to work long hours or put in the time necessary to see success. You will eventually begin finding yourself thinking how it was possible for your day to go by so quickly. If you see yourself counting every minute of your work day, you should take your talents to a field you truly have interest in.

Now that you know how to control the 5 basic emotions, use them to harness your own success. Don’t let your emotions control you, but control them instead. Those who are most successful are the ones who can keep their emotions under complete control, utilizing them when necessary.
