182: 3 Beliefs to Help You Understand and Control Your Emotions

LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE AND ALL OTHERS BELOW

Do you ever feel fits of rage?  Have you ever had a day start off great and then deteriorate after a negative interaction or event?  Chances are good that you might not have a handle on the best ways to control your emotions.

The most steadfast principle of ZEN commuter is that you are responsible for your life, including your emotions, including your choice to be happy in any situation.

If you feel your emotions are outside of your control then your ability to craft a life of your choosing is gone.  If you feel that your life is at the whim of a spouse who loves you or a boss that  hates you, your life will never truly be your own.  Listen today and tomorrow to learn how to take back control of your emotions.
