IMPULSIVE ACTIONS/DECISIONS

Posted in Uncategorized by K P Ramachandran on October 5, 2014

Without any doubt, our emotions dictate our thoughts, intentions and decisions. But when we act on our emotions too quickly or we act on our negative emotions, we often make wrong decisions that we later repent. Our negative emotions must be handled with extreme care. Negative emotions like rage, envy or bitterness tend to spiral out of control and will result in bad decisions which affect our career / life. The following steps can control our emotions and regain rationality in any challenging situation.

  • DO NOT REACT IMMEDIATELY 

Reacting immediately to our negative emotions can be a big mistake. Think overnight calmly and take decision on the next day/opportunity,  rationally.

  • GET GOOD OPINION

It is always good to get an opinion from some one you trust and are more experienced than you before taking your decision.

  • SEE THE BIGGER PICTURE

Even in the midst of emotionally upsetting moment, trust that there exists an ultimate purpose which you will come to comprehend soon. You have to use your wisdom to see the bigger picture, the pros and cons of that decision.

  • REPLACE YOUR THOUGHTS

Negative emotions tend to negative thoughts creating negative decisions. In such a situation, replace your thoughts with a different thought. Engage in a happy activity. Think of someone who can make you happy or remember an event that make you smile or go for a vacation with your beloved family members.

  • FORGIVE YOUR EMOTIONAL TRIGGER

Your emotional triggers may be your best friend, your family member or your colleague. You feel distressed when they behave strangely/ indifferently totally unexpectedly. When you forgive, you detach from resentment and the fury lingering within you. As you forgive, you will find yourself dissociating from the harsh feelings attached to your being.

It is necessary that , for success in your life or career you are able to master your emotions.
