Emotional Mastery - Take Back Control from the Seven Emotions That Are Holding You Hostage

You lost your temper.

You were up worrying half the night.

You couldn’t get past what happened last week.

Whatever the case, we’ve all been there: lost and under the control of feelings we’d rather not have. Logically, you know we’re in the wrong place. But how do you take back control from the emotions which are holding you hostage?

It might help to consider each of these emotions as though they are a person. Think Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, except those particular companions were a lot cuter and way more fun than this bunch. These guys are a little more like that clique at your high school. You know the one. The kids who caused mayhem every time they showed up. Let’s take a minute to get to know their names.

  • Anger
  • Fear
  • Shame
  • Anxiety
  • Apathy
  • Despair
  • Guilt

Whew, tough crowd. But don’t be intimidated! First of all, all emotions serve a purpose, as you’ll find in the next chapter. Even these. It’s when they get out of control when they become trouble, which is what we’ll address in the rest of this book. In each chapter, we’re going to focus first on the emotion itself and what purpose this particular emotion typically serves. It’s at the end of each chapter, though, where you will earn how to break the grip of each emotion in three easy steps.

So, no more prisons. Emotional Mastery is around the corner. Grab your copy and...

Love Affair With Life


Your job is not your passion.

In America, 88% of people would agree with this statement. Even if you’re embracing your career, there’s no guarantee you’re ever going to move into the magical 12% who are passionate about what they do.

On the other hand, even if your specific job isn't your passion, you can find tasks/assignments within your career which do line up with your passion. For example, maybe you work in sales, but it isn’t really a "passion" of yours to sell things. You may be passionate about traveling, and a sales job allows you this freedom.

Now imagine finding these areas in every aspect of your life, where you find ways to build and create passion wherever you are or whatever you’re doing.

Sound impossible? It’s not. Think about this one simple truth. You can feel passionate about many things, even at the same time. Which means you can feel passion in your job and in your personal life. Or you can even feel passionate about several aspects of your job.

Passion is everywhere.

New Success Mindset


What is success to you?

Times are changing. You only have to think back a year or two to see how things have shifted. You’re changing with them, whether you realize it or not. Think for a moment about the goals you have right now compared to the goals you made the last time the New Year rolled around. Are they still the same? Have you had to adjust your expectations? You’re probably still looking for success, but is it the same vision you had before?

In this book, we’re going to explore what the more modern New Success looks like. We’ll start with a brief explanation of terms, starting with what success looks like, and what it’s not. You might be surprised by what you find out.

From there, we’re going to look at the more classic personality traits of successful people. These ten traits are going to seem pretty familiar, but don’t be deceived. That isn’t what this book is about!

The section focuses on some of the traits of success that don’t get talked about as often. Some of these might seem pretty new to you, hence the term “New Success.”

In discussing these traits, you’ll get more than a definition of what they mean. You’re going to find out why each trait is important in today’s world, and how to harness the power of this trait.

Success is a popular self-help topic, and chances are this isn’t your first book on success. Hopefully, though, you’ll find this book to be the most helpful of any you’ve read.

Let’s dig in and find out.

Daily Optimist


One of the main components of self-development and a primary skill of emotional intelligence is optimism.

Optimism is an important aspect of positive psychology – a branch of psychology that deals with how individuals can be happier. Our outlook on life is a very important aspect of our development as a person and a critical factor that is responsible for our overall growth and success in life.

People with a pessimistic outlook always find it more difficult to navigate through life than those who are optimistic.  They may find it difficult to advance in their chosen career or relationship. How we react to the failures and disappointments in our lives can shape many things. It can mean the difference between experiencing events in our lives as negative or positive. Our stress levels and health will be affected.

This eBook will be discussing what optimism is all about. Its origin and definition. You will learn why it's important and how you can become a daily optimist. You'll see it’s many potential benefits, and why cultivating an optimistic and positive outlook on life is essential to your wellbeing, relationships, and chosen career. 

Let's Go


You’ve been to the seminars, seen the videos and read the books. Nothing changes. It’s not enough to have the information; you need to act on the information. You need to utilize what you’ve learned and applied it to your life, or nothing is ever going to get any better. Learning a new language will be a moot point if you never use it.

You will lose your skills in dancing if you don’t take the time to get out on the floor. You can learn how to be the person you want to be and forget it all if you don’t put any of that knowledge to practical use. Sometimes the only trick is to get up and do it.

Change comes from effort. Change comes from taking action. In this book, we’re going to talk about taking action, about being a positive force for change in your life, and about the barriers that keep us from taking that positive action.  If you choose, the words you read here today will be the impetus for positive and lasting change in your life.

Frederick Douglass once said, “If there is no struggle, there is no progress.” As humans, we naturally resist change. We don’t want it; we don’t like it.

What we want is to be different than we are, but that requires doing something different, and that means struggle. Change requires action.

Most of us plan and think and promise ourselves that we will eventually change. Today we want you to stop thinking about it. You already know what you want to be. Now it’s time to Take Action!


You Are Worth It


Have you ever seen the classic music movie, Planes, Trains, and Automobiles?

In the movie, there is a character named Del, who has been put down repeatedly throughout the movie through a variety of situations.

Finally, it reaches a point where the jokes and jibes aren't quite as funny anymore. Del looks at his tormentor and says:

You wanna hurt me? Go right ahead if it makes you feel any better… I could be a cold-hearted cynic like you... but I don't like to hurt people's feelings. Well, you think what you want about me; I'm not changing. I like... I like me. My wife likes me. My customers like me. 'Cause I'm the real article. What you see is what you get.

Here is a moment of triumph. Think for a moment what it takes to stand in front of somebody else and say these words. Think about how powerful it is to be able to say them.

Do you like who you are? Hopefully, you do. If not, this book is here to help.

In the following pages, you are going to learn how to recognize your worth, because indeed, you are worthy of happiness and success.

This book will break down the many benefits of having self-worth and then teach you how to deal with criticism and, better yet, what to do if you suffer from low self-worth. But more importantly, you'll find out how to raise your self-worth to where it belongs.

Having good self-worth is essential. Hopefully, by the end of this book, you'll be starting to see a difference. You'll feel more energetic, more capable, and more resilient. You'll enjoy closer and more intimate relationships, and like Del, you won't be afraid to speak up for yourself.

It's time to like yourself. Let's get started.

When Life Give You Lemons


So, you feel like life is getting the better of you, and no matter what you do you can’t escape the strong grasp of adversity, doubters, and failures, huh? Well, we’re going to give you all the tools you need to use those exact things to transform your life into a bundle of joy, happiness, and success.

Some people have difficulty differentiating reality from fantasy. They hold the assumption that we live in a perfect world where Mother Nature continuously hands out gifts to us perfect human beings. But, realists acknowledge that life is in fact jam-packed with tribulations. Everyone across the globe will encounter negative situations, have bad experiences lodged in their memory, and feel awful emotions from time to time.

Happiness and success are ultimately in your own hands, and it’s your responsibility to prevent difficult situations from dictating your life. Those who tend to manipulate problems into opportunities for development through positive thinking boost their chances of becoming successful in every aspect of their life.

Instead of fearing failure, you should honestly value it. Why? Because without making mistakes, coming in second-best or downright failing, you’ll never have the resources to improve your skills, bolster your knowledge or gain wisdom. Subsequently, you’ll continue making the same mistakes in the future and continue experiencing failures.

Not Sorry

Have you heard the expression, “Sorry, not sorry”? Maybe you’ve used it once or twice. We can all thank singer Demi Lovato for coining the phrase, but it’s something we all have inside of us – deep, deep down.

It may feel unnatural to be unapologetic. After all, we tend to live our lives at the mercy of others, seeking to please everyone else so that we can feel liked.  We easily adopt the “I’m sorry” mentality, which leads us to believe we need to apologize for being who we are.

Apologizing out of respect is one thing. Sometimes you need to own up to your actions and apologize when it is warranted. Other times, though, apologizing gets in the way of who you are. It can create a false sense of self-deprecation, and it can derail your motivation to do great things and be proud of yourself.

It’s important to make the distinction between these two types of apologies. One type is humbling and kind. The other is damaging to your own success. Think about it this way: How would you react if one of your friends apologized for a huge accomplishment? You probably would tell them it’s unnecessary. Your small but frequent apologies are a microcosm of that example.

What makes you any better than that person if you apologize for pursuing your dreams? Or for working hard and getting a promotion instead of your coworker? Nothing! Your goals, dreams, and ambitions are commendable, so you shouldn’t let anyone get in the way.

You’re unstoppable, unapologetic, and unrelenting. As you step through life, you’ll learn how to push the apologies aside – while keeping your etiquette and kindness intact. And we’ll cover that in this eBook. In fact, we’ll help you speed up the process by telling you why it’s crucial to unapologetically pursue your dreams, how to do it, and how it will impact your life.

You’ll be unapologetic in no time! By no means is this eBook a recipe for becoming a jerk. You can be kind and unapologetic – these are not mutually exclusive. Ready to retire all your unnecessary apologies from your vocabulary? Grab this guide now!
