Master Your Mind, Master Your Life Challenge – Day 5
Emotional mastery is reflected in attitude and energy. It is your ability to stay focused, when faced with disappointment and challenge.
When Cindy joined the Fit, Fab and Fulfilled Mastermind she was frustrated. Although Cindy had a desire for life to change she was stopped by fear and anxiety. During one of the mastermind discussion Cindy realized that her anxiety and fears were from past events. Cindy had the unconscious habit of categorizing most uncomfortable events as positive or negative or good or bad. Her response, to avoid most situation the evokes fear or anxiety. She carried the negative emotion from her past into her present.
When Cindy was encouraged to see all events, whether positive or negative as an empowering opportunity to learn and grow, she began to experience small changes. Today Cindy has begun to set goals that have her excited about her future.

At times emotions can be overwhelming and feel almost impossible to manage. Unfortunately, one of the reasons people do not achieve their goals is because they are distracted and derailed by their emotions. While the event is long past many people hold on to the negative emotions for years. I was once told “you can’t be hateful and grateful at the same time.” Simple yet true, you can’t smile and frown at the same time. Today I write ten gratitude’s daily, it the best way I know to keep positive and focused on what I desire. Next time you are unable to shake a negative emotion, shift your attention to gratitude. Simply stop and write down ten things you are grateful for.
If you are like many of the people I meet, you know you need mastery over your emotions but struggle to make the shift needed to get the results you desire. You don’t have to go it alone. I want to invite you to join the Mindset Mastery Mastermind which is a place where you can learn, grow and expand your mastery, personal leadership and ultimately increase the influence and impact you will have in the world.
