"Words like impatient, irritable, short fused, antagonistic, easily ruffled, powerless, passive-aggressive, bad tempered, sulky, full of rage, immature or abusive may come to mind when one describes a person who is chronically angry. However, the mind can be influenced into accepting a more calm and confident self-image if it’s learning needs are met." excerpt from the Understanding and Managing Anger Mini-Workbook-please feel free to email me and request a copy.

When we perceive people as being in charge of their emotions, we might describe them as having a strong belief in themselves, being composed, secure and self-assured. I believe that these people have chosen to become the confident CEO of their lives.

Anger is a normal and natural emotion. We all experience it to some degree. It is natural to feel upset when our rights have been impeded or things do not go our way. What is important is how we choose to express anger.

Being angry and having anger issues are two very different things. Uncontrolled anger (adult temper tantrums) can be passive or highly explosive. Either way it can result in serious loss (relationships, employment, health issues and/or criminal charges.

It can be hard to admit that you have issues with anger. However, awareness is critical if changes are to occur. When we experience automatic anger, we give our power away. This is not a life that is fueled by self-confidence. 

When we allow external circumstances and past challenges to determine our frame of mind we cease to be in control of our lives. We become the confident CEO of our lives when we begin to take charge of our thoughts, feelings and behaviors. 

How we deal with anger is a learned response. The primitive mind has over time accepted ways of being that interfere with managing conflict (internal and external) in constructive manner. Angry people seem to have a lot of “hot buttons” and are easily triggered. Learning to take charge of our responses is possible.
