DR. DAVE REVEALS HOW TO CONTROL YOUR EMOTIONS
Negative and depressing thoughts packed full of emotion climb into the driver’s seat and hijack your life.
The message is clear. When your emotions are out of control, your rational mind will go for a rough ride until the storm of emotion subsides.
Logic is powerless in the face of unrestrained emotion. Your rational mind watches disaster getting ready to happen and is powerless to stop it, because the emotional mind is deaf to the voice of reason.
Even courts recognize that we are creatures of emotion. When people lose control of their emotions, and in a fit of passion commit murder, the courts charge these people with second degree murder, because it wasn’t premeditated. First degree murder is reserved for those who plan and carry out their crime in a calculated, cold-blooded fashion.
In the battle between reason and emotion, emotion is the unequivocal winner.
One of your highest priorities must be to tame your emotional mind and push it in a positive direction. Until you do that, you will not be in control of your life.
The power of emotion will dominate your life until it meets the most powerful forced in the universe, God’s love.
Renewing your rational mind is relatively easy. You spent the first twenty years of your life learning how to do it. Public education put enough material in your rational mind to last ten lifetimes.
Unfortunately, no one taught you how to renew your emotional mind. No one told you God’s love is the most powerful force in the universe. No one told you God’s love can heal damaged emotions
Renewing the emotional mind is hard, because it requires healing.
Education isn’t enough. Chemical dependencies and damaged emotions will never be healed by taking a class at a university, or by talking to a counselor who tells you all of the reasons why things will be fine once you get everything straightened out in your mind. They can spend years educating your rational mind, and you will never escape your chemical dependencies because your damaged emotions have not been healed.
God’s love is the definitive cure for damaged emotions.
God is a specialist at renewing your emotional mind through the power of his love.
He can heal your emotional wounds, remove your emotional scars, and wash away your guilt.
Although his love will not change the bad things that happened to you in the past, it will erase their power.
His love will not only point you in the right direction, it will also give you the power to make the trip.
God designed my mind to be the door through which the power of his love flows into my life. My mind is where God’s love is brought to bear on the problems of life. When I fill my mind with the power of his love, miraculous things happen. But it’s not the mind that makes them take place. It’s God’s love that makes the miracles come to pass. God’s love gives me a completely new way of thinking and feeling. His love heals my damaged emotions and washes away my guilt. His loves points me in the direction and gives me the power to make the trip.
The Bible says, “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.”
Your heart is your home. It’s where you live in a world of swirling emotions.
Although your thoughts control your emotions, it’s your emotions that rule your world.
If you want to take charge of your life, you must control the storm of thoughts blowing through your heart and mind.
To a great extent, your emotions rule your life.
The Cardinal Law of The Heart is that feeling is believing.
You can tell when you really believe something because you feel it in your heart.
Whether that feeling and belief are correct or not is a completely different issue.
If you feel it, you believe it, and it controls your life. Until you feel something in your heart, you don't really believe it, and it doesn't direct your life.
Your heart is your home, and you should feel comfortable there. It should feel good to be at home with yourself.
If you don't feel good inside, you need to make some changes in the way you think so that you can change the way you feel.
Your heart is like a calculator that sums up everything in your life. After it adds everything up, it tells you how to feel.
When you feel bad, you need to change what you put into your mind so that things add up differently.
When you count your blessings, and fill your mind with good things, your heart adds everything up, and you feel great.
You must put good things into your mind if you want to feel good on the inside. There is no other way.
Although you can’t change your emotions directly, you can change them indirectly by changing how you think.
Your emotions are the direct result of your thoughts, and when you change the way you think, your emotions change as well.
The Bible says, “Be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
Personal transformation starts in your head and works its way down to your heart. Your new way of thinking transforms your heart and changes the way you feel.
To become a positive person, you must put positive things into your mind. There is no other way to create a positive mind.
You can change the way you think and feel by changing what you say when you talk to your mind.
If you want to change the way you feel, you are going to have to change your inner dialogue. You are going to have to talk to your mind in a different manner.
You must monitor your self-talk and make sure it's positive, and if it's not positive, you must change it. This isn't optional.
If you don't make your self-talk positive, there is no way you are going to win the battle of the mind.
The wheel of emotion always turns in the direction of what you put into your mind.
What you put into your mind is critical. The only way to become a positive person is to put positive things into your mind.
You can make your mind as positive as you want if you are willing to put positive things into your mind.
People who have a genetic predisposition to mood disorders have an even greater need to fill their mind with positive things.
People who have an inner vulnerability predisposing them to depression need to be especially careful about what they allow in their mind. If they fill their mind with toxic waste, they will become depressed.
For these people, the price of a positive mind is eternal vigilance. They must continually stand watch on the door of their mind to keep it from filling up with toxic waste. They must become proactive and adopt a program in which they spend time each day putting positive things into their mind.
When you think negative and limiting thoughts for a long time, you create a chemical imbalance in your brain, and you feel bad.
When you think positive and unlimited thoughts for an extended period, you restore the normal chemical balance, and you feel good once again.
What you think about matters, because it determines the chemistry of your brain. What you think about determines whether you have a positive or negative brain.
You are responsible for the chemistry of your brain.
When you choose your thoughts, you choose your brain chemistry.
When you change your thoughts, you change your brain chemistry.
You are not the victim of your chemistry, you are it's creator.
When you get your thinking straightened out, your brain chemistry returns to normal.
Positive self-talk is an extremely powerful tool you can use to put good things into your mind to create a positive brain.
How do you change the way you think?
Three laws show you how to make it happen.
1. The Law of Positive-Self Talk.
2. The Law of Positive Direction.
3. The Law of Positive Focus.
The Law of Positive Self-Talk states, "You change the way you think and feel by changing what you say when you talk to your mind."
If you want to change the way you feel, you are going to have to change your inner dialogue. You are going to have to talk to your mind in a different manner
The Law of Positive Direction states, "The wheel of change always turns in the direction of what you put into your mind."
You actually push your mind in a positive direction by putting positive and healthy thoughts into your mind.
If you put enough positive thoughts into your mind, you can actually create a positive brain.
You are not helpless, and your life is not hopeless. Your life instantly improves the moment you start putting good things into your mind.
The simple act of reading these positive words turns the wheel of change in a positive direction, and every paragraph you read makes you into a more positive person.
The Law of Positive Focus states, "A persistently positive focus creates a consistently positive mind."
The battle to control your emotions is fought on the battlefield of focus. In order to control your emotions, you will have to learn how to persistently and consistently control the focus of your mind.
