This week, we’re wrapping up the book study on becoming Intelligently Emotional. Even though the study may be coming to a close, the process (for most of us) is an ongoing target. We’ve said plenty about the value of controlling our emotions. Emotional control is the foundation of living from your strengths and becoming your very best. But it all seems to converge on this one takeaway question we each must as: What’s the best thing for me to do in this situation? Develop a habit around asking this magic question and you are well on your way to mastering your emotions.
The Magic Question Is a RE-focus, RE-connect, and RE-set Question
It seems that with every choice we make, we’re either building our emotional intelligence or breaking it down. And after taking a deep dive into the book study, I can now see how often my actions are actually the result of my emotions and vice versa. Have you also noticed this link? Regardless of whether you become aware of the emotions you’re acting on or you are acting to change your emotions, actions and emotions are inextricably linked. I don’t know about you, but I think this makes things a bit easier when trying to exercise emotional control.
The “magic question” works like magic because it re-focuses us on the solution to an important problem. It re-connects us to our goals in any relationship or circumstance. And it allows us to hit a reset button by replacing negative, unhelpful emotions with helpful ones.
What’s the best thing for me to do?
If you haven’t tried to use the question, “What’s the best thing for me to do?,” please try it. Learn more about next steps once you’ve answered this question. Chapter 6 of the book, “Intelligently Emotional” is a great place to start. Everyone needs a re-set button, whether you’re a parent, boss, spouse or friend.
Emotional control is not about getting it right the first time, every time. It’s about learning to act in a way that leads you to achieving your important goals in life.
