Success is more than the desire or will to work. It is comprised of many factors such as enthusiasm, determination, self-discipline, confidence, resilience, focus, adaptation, lack of procrastination, creativity, communication, motivation, positive attitude, empathy, courage, patience, responsibility, organization, and goals to name a few. Anything that prevents one or more from being effective hurts success. The greatest success is achieved when every factor is consistent in its action. Emotions easily prevent consistency.
Emotions control each of these factors. A person’s anger could prevent many of these factors such as enthusiasm, confidence, focus, communication, positive attitude, but then so could joy or sadness. Each emotion acts differently for each person. To master each emotion and thus every factor for success, one must learn how each emotion controls attitudes, behaviors and actions.
Many measures of success exist. The most common are money, athletic skill, excellence in music, acting, and parenthood. Read the following pages to learn more and contact Lane Stokes at CounselingServicesAtlanta.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
