When we fail (for want of a better word) at anything, work, home, relationships, exercise, it’s usually because we have not understood or been able to control an emotion.

Bear with me because that might sound like I’m stretching it a bit.

Think about it.

You had an argument with your boyfriend because you were upset.

You quit your workout because you were angry you couldn’t do that particular move.

You didn’t hit that deadline because you were too proud to ask for help.

If you understand your emotions (good luck!), you have a better chance of controlling them and making them work for you.2

We go through so many emotions every day as human beings but here are the main ones:

1. Anticipation and Excitement

When we are small, we experience excitement more deeply and more often than we do as adults.

We learn to control these emotions, which isn't always a good thing.

It can turn us into a "stuffed shirt," somebody who lacks spontaneity.

Acting on impulse and being guided by emotions rather than by logic was frowned upon for centuries.2

Modern scientists are only beginning to understand what emotional intelligence actually is.

Creative people have it in spades, so do truly inspiring leaders of industry and commerce.

Only when you live in the moment, make having fun and good experiences the focal point of your existence, will you be truly living.

When excitement and anticipation are bubbling up in you, tell everyone so they can get excited with and for you.3

It's a great positive feeling that should be shared with others.
