“ One of the most important but one of the most difficult things for a powerful mind is to be its own master. ”— Joseph Addison
What kind of power do people really have?
The real power in life is power over your emotions. Think about it. Ever been divorced from a jerk, narcissist or sociopath and YOU have been called a drama mama? Ever been betrayed or defrauded in a business deal? You felt powerless and got angry. This is where the problem is. Control the emotions and you control the situation.
I consult with men and women in high conflict divorces. The most important thing I do is show them, by coaching, by q and a, how they can lose all their power by losing control of their emotions.
