Take Action Now – Control Your Emotions



take action now and control emotions www.janeanesworld.com




It is magnificent to take action now and to handle your emotions while you do it. When we take action now, we step up to the plate and do the things necessary to get things done. There are many reasons why people do not take action now, and instead stall, procrastinate and think of reasons not to move forward. One of the big reasons is a lack of control of emotions, good emotions and bad emotions.

It is important to be able to identify and handle your emotions. This is important because when emotions cannot be identified and handled, they can cripple and cause action not to be taken or to be taken in vain. Human beings are multipart creatures – mental, physical, spiritual and emotional. When we take action now we must take into account all parts of ourselves. In other words, do not take the emotion out of the equation when you take action now, instead, recognize the emotions that exist or will come into play and use that as part of your move to take action now.

When a person begins to take action now, that person will start to feel things, good things, bad things, exciting things and scary things. It is these emotions that stop people from doing what they knew to take action now. Look the things you want to do, those big dream projects. As you make plans to take action now take time to think about the emotions you will feel as a result of that action.

For example, let’s say you have a plan to start selling a new product. As you prepare to take action now on the new product line, think about how you will feel if the best possible outcome from your action comes to pass. Next, think about how you will feel if the worst possible outcome from your action comes to pass. Once you recognize the emotions that will be attached to either side of your decision to take action now, you will be able to take action with a stronger sense of confidence.




In conclusion, it is magnificent to take action now and to handle your emotions while you do it. So the question for you this magnificent day is how are you going to keep your emotions in check while you take action now?

  21. Control the emotions or they will control you. You have to remember….emotion is usually a reaction to something that someone else has said or done. Before you react, ask yourself…do you care about what that person thinks? Does it really matter? When you react, you have given that other person power over you and your life, even if it is just for a minute. Don’t do that. Don’t give them that power.

  22. It’s very
    important to control your emotion and if you are able to do so, it’s one of the

    control of it. πŸ™‚

  32. You have to know when your emotions could affect decision making. Sometimes it’s best to take some time before reacting too quickly based on those emotions.

  33. I can’t help but agree 100%! I’m a very rational person so when I’m not overly emotional due to hormone issues, my head really does rationalize my emotions as they enter my brain. I find it a lot easier to take action when your emotions are in check and dealt with in a healthy way πŸ™‚
