In the opinion of many researchers, we can control our emotions because we can control the two major factors that make up our emotions—our mental perception of the experience and the associated physiological response.

 

 

By developing or increasing awareness of our thoughts, and awareness of our bodies, we can take control.

 

 

If we don’t, both will continue automatically, but with results that may not always be in our best self-interest.

 

 

According to Karen Stone-McCown, chairman and founder of Six Seconds and author of Self Science,

 

 

“Emotions are our responses to the world around us, and they are created by the combination of our thoughts, feelings, and actions.

 

 

What is most important is for each of us to learn that we create our own emotions.

 

 

Our responses are shaped by our thoughts—by what we tell ourselves.

 

 

As we clarify our understanding of our own beliefs and patterns, we learn that we are actually choosing our own lives.

 

 

We take responsibility for our thoughts, feelings, and actions; we become accountable.”
