“Life is a series of events. Every event is an opportunity for change.
It is from the most painful events that you change the most.”
– Dr. Mike Gosling.
Have you ever heard someone say:
- “Oh, she is so sensitive, she always bursts into tears at the drop of a hat.”
- “Now come on son, real men don’t cry.”
- “Reason is superior to emotion. Emotions are chaotic and immature.”
- “Emotions ‘get in the way’ of rational decision-making.”
Know that Emotion is the FORCE of Life.
The contemporary view is that emotions convey information about relationships. Each emotion signals a different relation. And each of us experiences our emotion differently. Thoroughly thinking through and understanding our emotions and the emotions of others is an important source of coping – with ourselves, our workmates, friends, family, and community – and solving behavioral problems.
Dr. Mike and Karen Gosling are emotional growth experts who help you enrich your own lives. In using these talents and abilities, they have invested in, created, and now enjoy the wonderful pleasure and privilege of helping so many people around the world. Their influence has enabled people to solve their most significant, most consistent behavioral problems. Solving these painful events and problems – these emotional health challenges – is the key to a more meaningful life.
In the pages of this blog, and our EmotionMatters Community site, we have dedicated ourselves to helping you think through your emotions and use your emotions to help your thinking. For those committed to embarking on this journey with us, you will find an emotional richness that will come only from applying yourself to some hard work.
Paradoxically, enjoying emotional health … a life of EASE … involves choosing to work the hardest you have ever done:
- learning new emotional knowledge
- understanding your emotional style, and
- developing your emotional intelligence.
The rewards are measured in emotional wisdom and the richness of fulfilling relationships to enjoy unlimited wealth and abundance.
