There are two things that people want to be able to do to improve their emotional life. You want to be able to choose what you become emotional about and when you become emotional. That’s number one.
And the second is you want to be able to choose how you act when you are emotional. Well nature didn’t want you to do either. So it didn’t give you any tools. So if you’re going to learn how to do this, it’s going to be hard work and it isn’t going to be the kind of learning like learning to ride a bicycle.
Once you learn to ride a bicycle you can stay off it for ten years and get right back on it and ride. What I’m going to tell you now, if you don’t do every day, you’ll fall off. You got to practice it all the time. It’s like being a concert pianist. It doesn’t stick unless you practice it.
