Emotions are stronger than rational thinking when making good choices (Pod #460)
I often hear my clients say "I should have known better" OR "I know better, but for some reason I keep making the same choice" when they are judging their actions. Just knowing what the right choice is doesn't mean we will make it, because information alone is not enough.
Most of the reasons we don't make the right choice or take the right action, even though we know intellectually what we want to do, have to do with our emotional state. In almost every case, emotions will win out over reason.
This week's podcast explores:
- Why our emotions win
- How dealing with regret for poor choices in the past is key to making better choices in future
- How to use EFT Tapping to make better choices more often
