article_angryHey there everyone, back at it with another success tip.  Today it is about emotions, can you manage your emotions?

This is important in any aspect of your life.  In business though, if you are an entrepreneur it isn’t important it’s critical!  If you’re carrying around negative emotions trying to talk with people about your business they will smell it out every time no matter how well you think you’re masking it out.

So how do you get rid of negative emotions?  You may think that surly isn’t easy.   The bottom line is it doesn’t have to be hard; it is as difficult or easy as you make it.  The reality is that it takes focus.

There are 7 basic steps to follow.

1: Take responsibility for it. Don’t blame someone else, if you think someone else is causing it and you wait for them to change things you may be waiting forever. Take responsibility for it.

2: Realize the emotion, witness the emotion inside yourself. Think of an encounter you had with someone that brought it out. The more you get in touch with it the more you can control it.

3: Define it. Is it anger, depression is it fear.

4: Express it. Write down what happens after you express your emotion.

5: After you express the emotion share it! Share it with someone you care about. Talk about what it did and what it could have done if it continued as this will lead into step six.

6: which is release it. Just let go of it. This should be easy now, you know what it is, what it feels like, what the reaction is and who put it there. Now just let it go.

7: Celebrate your victory, you have just beaten a bad day and are ready to get productive, so take a minute and celebrate your victory.
