Powerful Techniques for
How to Control Emotions

Use powerful techniques to learn how to control emotions by building valuable awareness and changing earlier life decisions. Gain important insight and increase your personal power to own and direct your life! 

Jut Meininger's book: How to Run Your Own Life is a world-renowned book in the field of Transactional Analysis. Leaving the "heavy psychological" aspect for a moment (as it can be uninteresting to some) this book is an amazing way to examine our feelings, and get control of basic emotions using a very simple, but powerful process.

Drivers of Your Behaviour

This book gives us a marvelous mental tool to learn how to control emotions, and run our own lives. We will learn to conceptualize what we want, and prepare ourselves to accept. 

Do any of the following apply to you?

I Hurry: I'm afraid to miss something!

"Little Miss Perfect" : I feel bad when I "fail" or never take a risk because I'm afraid to make a mistake.

Please Me: I require other people's approval or acceptance constantly

Try Hard: I may not get results, but I "struggle" with a lot of effort

Be Strong: I need to appear to have things "under control" and "tough" things out.

These are just a few examples of drivers of our behaviour. They result from little voices in our head that control what we do, say and how we feel. We can learn to change their impact, and thus live happier, less stressful, more enjoyable lives.

By reading this book, you will learn how to control emotions, pinpointing the feeling you want to get rid of, looking for the driver and justifications, and deciding how and when you'll give them up.

Jut Meininger's book How to Run Your Own Life is highly recommended for those wanting a tool to solve their own problems, not looking for something outside themselves to do it for them. You will focus on what you DO want, rather than what you don't want. A process of how to make a decision will unfold through this book, that will become natural and comfortable to you.

Learning How to Control Emotions

If you are looking for a quick and easy fix, this book is not for you. These steps to freedom will require you to build an awareness of how you are feeling, NOT how you are thinking, which is difficult for many, as they usually have been taught to ignore our feelings, or suppress them.

You will learn to make a list of emotions that you feel in a given day including adjectives that describe yourself, and feelings that limit you, or stand in your way, that you want to eliminate. By trusting yourself and your own inner perceptions, you will develop a way to get what you want, and regain control of your own life.

This simple process is one of recognizing the parent, adult and child responses you have what is going on around you. By using this method of how to control emotions using Transactional Analysis, you will add new ways of doing things to the ones you already employ.

The technique will cancel and alter some of the instructions and beliefs that you are operating from, and that direct your emotions about what you "can" and "can't" do, what you're good at, what you need in life to be happy, how smart you are, if the world is for or against you, and on and on. This book will show you how to STOP doing the things that are standing in your way, and re-decide some of the decisions that you have previously made that are preventing you from doing what you now WANT to do. By doing this, you will learn how to control emotions.

Paradigms are controlling your behaviour, without you consciously knowing it. The book is written in a way that demonstrates how to use this process through conversation with self, and including commentary at the end of each chapter to further explain the process of learning how to control your emotions, and really, build a life of your dreams!

Although Transactional Analysis has been around for a while, this very useful book has been recently released in a memorial edition. Add How to Run Your Own Life to your personal development plan, as it is considered to be one of the must-reads in personal development books!
