The Emotional Mastery IQ Matrix explores how to understand and make the most of every emotional experience that’s holding you back from living your best life. Did you know that your daily emotional experiences shape the decisions you make and the actions you take? It has been said that it’s not what happens to us, but rather how we respond to what happens that determines the results we experience. And how we respond is directly influenced by how we choose to interpret the events and circumstances of our lives.
Did you know that each one of the so-called “negative emotions” can, actually, provide you with the necessary guidance you need to make the best of every situation? Every emotion can become an empowering emotion; we just need to understand how to interpret it in that way. Working through this map will help you to understand how to interpret your emotions in ways that will serve your best interests and help you accomplish your desired objectives.
Here is a quick breakdown of each branch of the Emotional Mastery mind map.
- Emotional State Analysis: The first branch of this map takes you through the 10 fundamental emotional states we experience each day. These emotions include discomfort, fear, hurt, anger, guilt, frustration, overwhelm, inadequacy, loneliness, and disappointment. For each emotional state, the map outlines how to reinterpret it in an empowering and helpful way. In other words, it provides useful suggestions to help you overcome the effects that these seemingly negative emotions have on your life.
- Emotional State Transformation: The second branch of this map outlines a five-step process you can use to overcome daily emotional roadblocks. The steps of this process include (1) identifying your limiting emotion, (2) acknowledge your emotion without resistance, (3) identifying the empowering message behind this emotion, (4) choosing a more empowering interpretation, and (5) selecting your response. Use these steps to help you transform any negative emotional state into a more positive and helpful state that serves your best interests.
- Emotional State Management: The final branch of this map presents you with several guidelines to help you manage your emotional responses far more effectively throughout the day.
This map provides a roadmap and framework for transforming your perspective and making the most of every negative emotion you experience. Referencing it regularly and committing it to memory will help you to embed these concepts and ideas into your subconscious mind.
A mind map, of course, does this beautifully because it mirrors the synaptic connections made in your brain as you try to establish new habits of thought and behavior. It brings together key concepts and ideas that help your brain to fully integrate and process this information. The brain, subsequently, rewires itself as it attempts to establish new habits of mind. It’s an ideal tool for creating lasting change and transformation.
Stick with these principles, memorize and incorporate them into your daily emotional management regime, and you will progressively overcome the limiting emotions that are holding you back from being your best self and from living your best life.
