Take Action Now – Control Your Emotions






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?

  • So many people let their emotions get the better of them. Learning how to control them can save making mistakes and have regret later.

  • I think even talking about your emotions helps, too. Sometimes there are things you just need to get off your chest.

  • Good point, being aware makes you better in control.

  • It can be hard to handle emotions, but it's definitely something to strive for. Sometimes the smallest of problems become so big just because people can't handle themselves.

  • My Dad's nickname for me is "The Human Valium." I guess that means I'm pretty calm most of the time.

  • Well said. Emotions are essential but to understand and control them is easier said then done. I freely admit I need work in that area. Leading with my heart is definitely hard and the ramifications can be life altering. Thanks for the post and the check!

  • I am a very emotional person whether it is crying easily, mad easily or happy. It is definitely hard for me to check myself sometimes.

  • This has always been one of my biggest struggles, I can be very emotional wearing my emotions on my sleeve most of the time they get me in trouble.

  • I Definitely Am Very Good At Controlling My Emotions Thank God But This Is Very True!!

  • It has gotten easier for me to keep my actions in check as I take action as I have gotten older.
