Feelings matter more than thoughts? (video)

Why What We Feel Matters More Than What We Think
TEDx Talks
In the digital age Emotional Fitness will be more critical than ever before to the quality of our lives. It remains the most accurate predictor of success and happiness.

This is because we experience the world emotionally -- not cognitively. We make most major decisions based on how we feel, not what we think. And it is these feelings that guide the actions [karma] we take.

Therefore, our emotions determine the entire experience of our lives. The three emotions that drive and motivate us in life more than any other are:
  1. Love
  2. Hate
  3. Fear
[The Buddha says that what guides our lives are greed (clinging), hatred/fear (aversion), and delusion (ignorance/confusion) and the opposite beneficial motives: non-greed, non-aversion, and non-delusion.]

Being emotionally fit is to know what motivates us and to be in charge of how we feel.

No matter what our challenges are, this is the key to overcoming them, to reaching our highest potential, and to controlling the quality of our lives. Natasha Sharma is a psychotherapist, TV/media personality, and Ph.D. candidate. She is also the author of The Kindness Journal, owner of NKS Therapy, and a co-founder of Rule Your Emotions.

Understanding why we feel what we feel is one of the most important aspects of human development. After understanding comes control. When we control our emotions through vertical development, we can be more successful and happy. We’ve all seen adults behave like children and "throw their toys out of the [stroller]" if they don’t get their way. An inability to control emotions prevents us from growing up... Dr. Alan Watkins introduces the key phases of human development and explains why poor emotional control is holding back progress. Emotions meet technology in a new app (Universe of Emotions). More

In 2007 Sharma walked away from her 6-figure salary that "a million girls would kill for" to study psychology at Johns Hopkins. Since then she has been devoted to inspiring and helping others to master emotional fitness, learn how to be happier, and live their most fulfilling lives, counseling thousands of individuals and couples in the process.

Sharma’s expert advice has been featured in the media including The Globe & Mail, The Toronto Star, The Huffington Post, Elle, Global News, and Breakfast Television. She is a regular contributor to the globally-renowned Yummy Mummy Club and frequently self-promotes her expertise through collaborations with her alma mater, McMaster University.

As a seasoned speaker, Sharma enjoys integrating her clinical knowledge with personal and meaningful stories that help people connect to the importance of mastering their emotions…and how.;postID=4098453401057272998
