We’re all emotional people, and if we’re not careful, we can be ruled by our emotions.
To understand how your emotions work, picture a truck with a trailer on the back. The truck represents your will, and the trailer represents your emotions.
Here’s the point of the picture: the trailer will go wherever the truck decides it will go! The trailer is not in charge.
When you wake up, decide that you’re going to have a good day. Don’t wait to let your emotions make that decision for you. Once you’ve decided, your emotions will follow along.
“Your attitude is a servant of your will, not a victim of your emotions”
