Show Notes

Welcome back my friends! Wilk from WilksWorld.com here and in episode 5, I am talking about emotions and the importance of not allowing emotions to dictate our actions. Many years ago, my father and I were discussing some issues I was dealing with at the time. He said something that stuck with me from that point on but never fully understood until many years later when I first heard of Austrian Psychotherapist and Holocaust survivor Viktor Frankl and his teachings that one cannot always control what happens to them, but they can control how they react to it (paraphrasing). Emotions can be a very tricky thing, and to truly be happy and to be someone that is pleasant for others to be around, my life experience has taught me that you must become the master of your emotions instead of allowing your emotions to dictate your actions. Nobody can "make" you do anything, and by conquering your emotions, you no longer allow the actions of others  to be any kind of guiding principle on how you react. By becoming self-accountable, you become the master of your own domain, so to speak.

Above all things, be kind to each other, be grateful every day for what you've got, and remember, it's up to you to make each day what you want it to be.
