The Greek stoic philosopher Epictetus believed that what happened to an individual was not as important as how that individual reacted to it. Some two thousand years later, Aldous Huxley put it this way: “Experience is not what happens to you; it’s what you do with what happens to you.” It is only when the events and obstacles of the world around people are mapped onto their emotional landscapes that they truly become part of them. For anyone to alter his emotional landscape, therefore, is to profoundly alter who he is and who he is capable of becoming.
Author and motivational speaker Elisha Ogbonna has spent years delving into the subject of emotions, recognizing that the ability for people to master their emotions is tantamount to controlling their experience and shaping the world around them. For Ogbonna, the Huxley observation could be fashioned into a simple yet profound goal: controlling what happens in you irrespective of what happens to you. Mastering the Power of Your Emotions presents an instructive map of the emotional landscapes that every individual is forced to navigate. Furthermore, it introduces the Five Major Laws of Emotion and given insights on how anyone can command their emotions and break old patterns of behaviour and response.
It is not advisable for people to live at the mercy of their emotions. Here is an opportunity for anyone to learn how to harness their potential and shape their life into an experience worthy of them.”
Mastering the Power of Your Emotions, How to Control What Happens In You Irrespective of What Happens To You, is available to order online from the FriesenPress bookstore, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and most major book retailers. The eBook edition is available for Kindle, iBooks, Nook, Kobo and Google Play. Visit the author's website at http://www.elishaogbonna.com.
