What You Think, Is How You Feel, Is How You Act!
We are nothing if not how we behave. Our actions, choices, and behaviors define us, achieve and fail us, and predict for others who we are and how we will respond. All this external expression is driven by the action initiating emotions we experience internally. Emotions are fueled, created, and become a derivative of our thinking. Stinking thinking, positive thinking, storytelling, and tweeking of reality all create the meaning to which our emotions are based on.
The capacity for recognizing reality, and practicing the capacity for acting wisely on the emotional response is Emotional literacy-and intelligence.
