Emotions

In my "Get FREE" talk I give four basic principles that I believe are the way to create freedom through our businesses.

Focus
Relationships
Emotion
Expandability

Over the past couple of weeks I've been having lots of conversations about emotions and Pastor Joe said something that really stuck with me. He said,

"Emotions are great fuel but lousy pilots."


Isn't that true ...and that's why before we even get into the four ways to create freedom we must seek out and define our purpose. The "Why" question! Why are we doing what we're doing? What are we trying to accomplish? ...then we can use emotion to help us get there.

Wise words Mr. Barlow!!
I like that a lot!

The great thing is knowing that emotions are completely necessary to get us where we need to be (we need that validation) but when given the wrong role, they can totally fail us!
what good is fuel without a pilot and what good is a pilot without the necessary fuel?

Gee Deej, these last few posts have been pretty great opportunities to force us to think... Thanks! :)
