1st Scenario: “I’m so AGGRAVATED and ANXIOUS! I have new bookshelves and no time to find space in a room to put them!”
2nd Scenario: “I’m so GRATEFUL my friend gave me some new bookshelves. I’m anticipating finding just the right place for them and experiencing the JOY of storing my books.”
This is an example of one context and how one’s emotions shape a circumstantial future outlook through a window of perspective.
Can you see the difference? Same context, different emotions, different outlooks. Our emotions are the foundational tools for building our outlook on the future. The wonderful news is we can decide what emotions we choose to feel to create a blueprint before building. The Emotional Advantage sharpens this decision-making skill.
