Develop Your Emotional Abilities

Saba® makes you feel #CómodaContigo.

Do you sometimes feel like your emotions spiral out of control? It happens to all of us at some point in our lives. And it can definitely be a reaction to what we’re dealing with in our lives at that particular moment. 

Emotions help us adapt to our environment. We seek out what makes us happy, and we reject what doesn’t. This is why fear serves to protect us, and disgust helps us get away from something that could harm us. But it would benefit us if we worked on channelling certain emotions so that they don’t stop us from doing what we want. Shame, for example, can be a totally justified feeling in certain situations, but in others, it can prevent us from doing important activities that are beneficial to our development. And thus, shame becomes an obstacle that must be overcome.

Your emotions can affect your social and intellectual development in a positive way or a negative way. Have you wondered lately what are some things that you do well? Or what things about yourself you can work to improve? What makes you do something well? And how does it make you feel to do something well? There are many thought processes that can help or hinder you, and you may not even realize what they are. When you take the time to notice your thoughts and emotions, you can learn which thoughts and feelings serve you, and which ones you have to leave behind. Get to know yourself by recognizing your thoughts, emotions, and reactions.

No one can know you better than you know yourself. Reflect on whether or not your emotions help you achieve your goals. Understand yourself! The best way to channel your emotions and share them is through constructive relationships, teamwork, and collaboration. If you surround yourself with positive people, you will surely develop an attitude that drives your own personal development. 

Every decision you make has emotional and rational components. The idea is to make sure that both are in balance. If they are, you can not only achieve your goals, but you can feel good while doing it. Remember that the journey is just as important as the destination.

Sometimes your emotions drive you. Get to know your emotions, and channel them in the most constructive ways that will help you achieve everything you set out to do. I wish you the best, and never forget #HablemosTodo.
