The Emotional Roller Coaster

In our line of business, we encounter talented people who periodically experience shifting between the five major emotions: mad, glad, sad, shame, or fear. Mood swings are commonplace . . . and for some, these emotions create a negative, debilitating cycle.

In my recent book – 35 Truths: Lessons Learned from the Front Lines of Executive Coaching, I observed that the quality of your life is directly related to the meaning you attach to things. Pretty simple, right? If you think you can’t – you’re defeated before you begin.

Conversely, if you experience life as an incredible journey, you will naturally feel more self-actualized, centered, and complete.

As you traverse through 2020, I invite you to maintain a positive mindset as you encounter obstacles. View impediments as profound learning opportunities. Experiment with attaching empowering meaning to things that used to be a downer. Embrace the joy and refuse to be engulfed by negativity.

Enjoy your journey!
