Thought Tweet #475 Emotions hit us automatically; emotions differ from thoughts that are linked to our senses and desires...those are feelings.
The Thinking Behind The Tweet
Emotions were ingrained into 'our heredity'...they are evolutionary, subconscious, calls-to-action. They happen without thought. Some argue, emotions happen despite thought and so emotions are of little or no value in the modern civilized world.
Feelings are felt-thoughts. Feelings are the interplay between thoughts and the 6 senses in the mind. Desires are the most-intense feelings. When feelings are sustained for longer periods, say over 24 hours, they are called moods.
Emotions and feelings both act as drivers of behaviour. They do this different ways...and that's a key to change management.
