For the author, Emotions are the BOSS not to rule you but to lead you into success in life. A simple rule of thumb for any organization to be sustainable successfully.

Emotions are complicated things.  Emotions are ‘energy-in motion’ that will influence your actions and ultimately your life. They created habits and formed life attitude. Emotions cannot be controlled, but without managing that ‘energy in-motion’, you will be held hostage and your life problematic.

Emotions serve another purpose beyond the basics.  Emotions can tell you a lot about yourself. They Explain Who You’ve Been

  1. They Guide Your Thoughts

Emotions are what challenge you as you face the world.
When you feel fear or anger, and you begin to examine why you’re feeling this way, this emotion can set your thoughts along new pathways. So you must not react to an emotional issue but to respond accordingly to discover the TRUTHS hidden in the emotion. In psychotherapy, a study of how the MINDS work, we found 95% of it is made up of the subconscious mind.

In NEVER A VICTIM, when the writer lost her job in 2005, she wanted to go back to the University to pursue a PHD program, something she left behind when she joined broadcasting immediately after graduation in 1970. It was her son who reminded her that the world had changed. She had to get real!
Singapore was fortunate as the leadership gave much emphasis on continuous learning for the people’s MIND to be in tune with the changing time. With the onslaught of COVID19 pandemic, new challenges would set a new path of learning into the future.  This could spell trouble if you are not emotionally prepared!
