We are wondrous creatures. Think back at all you have experienced. Everything that you have done, felt, smelled, heard and touched. All the places you visited and the people that you have met. You live, you love, you hurt, you long, you suffer, you grieve, you’re happy, you’re sad - all of this is your world. The reality is that your entire world, your universe as you know it, weighs about three pounds. Your brain is so powerful that took the world’s most powerful supercomputers 40 minutes to mimic just one percent of one second’s worth of human brain activity. That is why it is so amazing that under so called normal circumstances, we can keep our thoughts positive and manage a normal and happy life.
Building emotional muscle is a very personal journey. That is because no one else has the same life experiences as you. I could tell you how I have dealt with it and maybe some of my experiences may help you. But I can assure you, that you and you alone, can make yourself become emotionally fit.
This is my third project in the Focused On You Series. I’ve written about communicating in difficult situations, bullying, and now Building Your Emotional Muscle. The C.R.I. (Clarity, Respect and Integrity) principles hold true throughout the series. I will provide you with concrete steps to follow as you begin your path to becoming emotionally fit.
