3 reasons why anger is your greatest gift!Apr 25, 2022
I know it sounds crazy! But hear me out, before you click off!
Do you feel like some people push your 'buttons' all the time?
You may even be:
🙋♀️ Feeling overwhelmed with the demands of your life and walking around like a 'ticking time bomb'?
🙋♀️ Unable to say “no” because you would rather please others to validate your self-worth (yes that one!)
🙋♀️ Allowing other people to get in the way of taking better care of yourself?
The chances are you are not alone!
and I don't have to be the one to tell you that if you continue living your life in this pattern, something will eventually give!
Until you decide to change something...and that time is now!
You see, anger is your greatest gift and so are your other emotions!
I understand why you think being angry (or ‘emotional’) is a bad thing. I get it.
We are socially conditioned to believe that anger & rage are a bad thing. They are of course, when they are outwardly expressed to the detriment of others (I am not even going to mention the incident you might be thinking about), worse still to yourself!
So how could your worst emotion and your weakness of flying into rage possibly be your greatest gift?
…because they are here to show you something that you are not consciously aware of, yet!
Every time you have a repeated pattern of anger/rage/sadness/frustration it is a sign of something deeper and it is coming up to make you aware of what it is! and believe me I know from experience that it will keep coming up until you identify the cause and deal with it!
Only when you become aware of the cause, it is much easier to let go! In fact, you will no longer be a slave to that emotion (i.e. reacting each time it comes up and making a scene).
You can listen to my very candid example of this from my own life on today’s episode of Finding Serenity in the Midst of Chaos Podcast.
How do you think the great leaders like Richard Branson, Steve Jobs, Oprah, [insert your favourite business leader], got to where they are?
It was by mastering their biggest emotions (what most people would consider weaknesses) and turning them into their greatest gifts, which propelled them all to massive success.
Why did they do the inside work first to achieve this?
Because they were smart enough to recognize that their greatest challenges created the greatest growth in their lives.
So, what are the 3 reasons why anger is your greatest gift?
1. It helps you to become aware of something that is NOT working well
2. If repeated enough it will cause you to take action to change it
3. When you take the right action, it will help you turn them to your advantage and get what you want in life more easily.
Battling to get what you want in life will become a thing of the past!
