The Secret to Controlling Your Emotional States

Get the Secret to controlling your emotional states here.

Did you know that you can only hold onto an emotional state for 90 seconds?

Think about it. Someone you know, an angry type of person, gets angry at you, and 90 seconds later, they’re back to normal.

As much as it would be nicer, you’d be ready to commit the person. They must be whacked! Schizoid!

So, I know you’re probably thinking, I’m whacked for even saying it, and who wouldn’t think that? In your experience, all the evidence is stacked against me – 90-second emotional states, give me a break.

Because that’s not your experience. When was the last time you were angry for 90 seconds and then suddenly weren’t? Right, rest my case, eh…

Mind you, the world would be a much nicer place to live in if that were true.

The Emotional States Of Bliss

Imagine if when you were very young, your mom or dad would have only been angry for 90 seconds and then POOF back to normal. Whoo Hoo! Break out the ice cream and cake!

Or when someone you loved passed on, and you were only sad for 90 seconds.

Not so much fun if happiness only lasts for 90 seconds, though. It would make for very short parties.

But, If it was true (and it really is), why do we stay angry, sad or happy for longer?

The short answer is because we boost it up. Just like your local phone company has to boost their signal to keep it going, you have to boost your signals too.

It’s an internal thing, of course, and you can control it once you know what triggers it. But it’s much too involved to explain here.

We cover all this and more in our NLP Training Online With NLP Coaching Certification if you want to check it out. It’s a great feeling to be more in control of yourself and to help others do the same.

We’ve even created and included a separate special program – not found anywhere else – called “Maximizing Your Life Potential” to take you through the process.

As Jeff Hartman of New Jersey said, “One of the greatest gifts, I have given myself! This remarkable NLP online training program.”
