Do you know that being angry and finding it difficult to control it plays a role in making you lose opportunities?
Being angry is not a bad thing but it becomes a great evil when you allow it to control it.
See this short story;
A young boy who happens to be a stylish soccer player, was at the field playing football with his mates. It happened that he was fouled by one of his teammates but referee signaled them to play on.
With anger, the young boy went after the other person who fouled him and kicked his stomach so hard that the boy couldn’t survive it.
He was immediately arrested and sentenced to many years in prison with hard labour.
What a wasted talent indeed.
The boy was the finest player
in his team. At least he would have joined few of his team mates who were selected to join the national team.
Not being able to control annoyance can be disastrous if not deadly.
My mother will always say
To be a good leader, you must be a good leader of your emotions
Now looking at the above quote, one will understand that for you to lead the public well, you must be incharge of your emotions. That includes; being able to manage your anger, unbiased, lacking favouritism etc.
What Anger can Cause
1. Lost of opportunities
When you fail to be in control of your anger, there is a great tendency that you lose opportunities.
A good example is the event that took place in the short story above. Assuming that young boy was able to control his annoyance, he would have joined his colleagues in the national team.
2. Regrettable Destruction
92% of actions taken in a state of annoyance can never have a good result.
When you make a decision in an angry state of mind, you will end up regretting that decision when you are calmed.
3. Limited Relationship
Inability to control your anger can result to your inability to acquire good friends.
Have you imagined what happens when a friend plays a prank on you and you become furious with the person?
In order to avoid all these, you must learn to control your anger.
How to Control Anger
There are many ways you can control anger. I will be showing few of them and I hope it helps.
1. Exit the Environment
When you are angry why don’t you try leaving that environment.
Leaving the environment will enable you be able to see new faces and get involved with different activities.
2. Watch videos
Get your mind free from what is provoking by watching videos and or listening to songs. I will recommend you watch comedy videos.
Watching videos and listening to music will take your mind away from what got you annoyed and trust me, that anger will be greatly controlled when within minutes.
3. Clean the environment
Try sweeping the environment when you are angry. Or probably pour water on the ground and begin to dry it up.
What is more important here is that you direct your mindset far away from what has offended you.
Cleaning the environment (even when it is clean) will help to shrug off the burden you are carrying (anger).
As absurd as this may sound, it has worked and still working in many situations.
You got angry and started laughing at that point. People may think that you are becoming crazy but unknown to them that you are trying to manage something that could be disastrous if not controlled.
5. Reduce the way you talk
Do you know that if you are angry and talking at the same time, it increases your annoyance?
The best way to solve this is just by keeping quiet.
Please Note: don’t stay there while you are keeping quiet. The reason is because deeply inside you, you might be burning in fury. So it advised you keep quiet and walk away.
Controlling anger is necessary to avoid the exhibition of disastrous actions.
In other to maintain or obtain success in everything you do, it is therefore important you learn to control your anger.
Hope this helps…..
