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.

I am taking a break from Facebook and writing a blog post a day. I will share these posts daily on Facebook via a Share link, but I won’t be checking notifications, messages, my News Feed, or Timeline. You can contact me here.
