Channel Your Fury
In seventh grade, I took a public speaking class.
Mr. Williams assured us that it was perfectly normal to feel nervous before giving a presentation.
The key, he said, is to transform that nervous energy into kinetic energy — literally, the energy of motion.
Similarly, in life, it is normal to experience various states of crippling emotion. You can’t expect to never feel angry, annoyed, or dissatisfied. The question is how do you turn this emotion into motion?
Passion and positivity are natural propellers. But what is the function of frustration and fury? Naturally, these feelings can make you stagnant or destructive. Or… they can be channeled toward positive action.
Fire can burn you and it can destroy you. But learn how to channel it and it becomes fuel to move you forward.
