How Emotions = What You Attract!

Importance of Emotions

Jodi’s on the road in Huntington, WV teaching ‘Managing Your Emotions’. While her students were on break she created a quick little video lesson about emotions.

Here’s the exercise that you might complete on your own.

Build a list of negative emotions:

  • Jealousy
  • Resentment
  • Sadness
  • Anger
  • Insecurity
  • Feat
  • Frustration
  • Stress
  • Misery
  • Shame
  • Blame
  • Guilt

  • Driven to achieve
  • Happy vibrations
  • Confident
  • Positive vibration
  • Enthusiastic
  • Success
  • Respected
  • Love
  • Achievement
  • Appreciation
  • Fulfilled
  • Joy

In his book “Emotional Intelligence at Work”, Daniel Goleman identifies 2 parts of the brain:

1) Cortex – (conscious, thinking part of the brain)
2) Limbic system – (non-conscious,  emotional part of the brain)

This latter non-conscious Limbic system is where we store all of our memories, habits, past experiences, and it’s where our emotions are generated.  The job of the Limbic system is really to protect us…. from additional hurts and bad experiences etc.  So when it detects a threat, it literally hijacks our cortex and renders us unable to think rationally.
