How to Stop Being an Emotional Trainwreck and Take Control of Your Life

It’s simple: Master your emotions, master your life

Or read on below to learn more.

Do you struggle with your emotions?

Do you struggle to contain them or express them or even recognize them?

Do your relationships turn into emotional dumpster fires fit for reality TV? Do you get sucked into drama and before you know it half your shit has been thrown out on the lawn?

Does every stupid little thing seem to push your buttons? Your ex’s beach vacation on Instagram? What some politician said on CNN this morning? The fact that your coworker reheats fish in the microwave three times a week and leaves the whole office smelling like your grandma’s stank ass?

Are you triggered that I just referenced your grandmother’s stank ass?

Then you may need to develop more emotional mastery…

Emotional Problems Can’t Be Fixed with Logic and Reason—They Need Something Else…

Emotions drive us to do, well, everything. As much as we like to think that we’re rational human beings most of the time, that’s just not how our brains work. We are, first and foremost, emotional creatures.

Emotions are the driving force in every aspect of our lives: our relationships, our work, our health, our hopes, our fears, and our dreams.

And so if we don’t have a handle on our own emotional shit, it does a lot of damage.

A lot of people try to “fix” these problems with logic and reason.

But these aren’t logical problems, so we can’t solve them with logic and reason.

Take work and productivity, for instance. It’s often approached in a very logical way—use this app, try this system, plan the next day the evening before, etc.

But productivity is deeply emotional. Choosing what work to focus on is an emotional problem. Distraction is an emotional problem. Even the most highly optimized productivity system can’t fix them.

It’s the same with our physical health. Everyone knows that we should eat right and exercise regularly because, logically, it keeps us healthy. But we don’t do those things because we don’t feel like doing them.

And this doesn’t even get into the shitstorm known as “romantic relationships.”

We fall in love with people who are absolutely terrible for us. We get pissed off when they leave the cap off the toothpaste. We feel hurt when they check their phone instead of complimenting our new haircut.

If none of this is making sense, that’s the point—it’s emotional.

If you feel as though your life is out of control because your emotions are out of control, what do you do?

A New Approach to Managing Your Emotions

While emotional problems can’t be “fixed” with logic and reason, you can learn to navigate emotions in a healthy, more realistic way.

You can motivate yourself a lot more easily if you identify emotional triggers that make you more productive vs. cause you to get distracted with three-hour YouTube rabbit holes.

You can live a healthier lifestyle if you tune into how you feel before overeating or skipping that workout.

You can navigate your relationships better if you understand the emotional scripts you’ve learned from your past relationships—or even all the way back to your childhood.

You can make better life decisions if you know the emotional driving force behind your values.

You can influence and inspire others if you know the emotional driving force behind their values.

You can do all of this and more.

You can take back control over your life.

Develop the Emotional Mastery to Handle Your Own Shit

My Emotional Mastery Course is a deep dive into how to do just that.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • 3 toxic myths about emotions

    And how they’re making you more emotionally unaware.

  • How to stop under- or over-expressing your emotions

    You’re probably doing both with different emotions, you just don’t realize it yet.

  • How and why emotional suppression is ruining your life

    And how to uncork that bottle without it exploding.

  • The 3-step process of how emotions manifest

    And which ones you have the most control over (and which ones you don’t).

  • How to identify powerful emotional triggers

    Especially the ones that make you do all the stupid shit you do when you’re acting like a real asshole.

  • How to uproot all the emotions causing destructive cycles in your life

    Fair warning: this will probably suck, but it’s worth it in the end.

  • Healthy, productive ways to channel the most difficult emotions

    Like anger, anxiety, and guilt.

  • How you can prevent yourself from losing control the next time something fucked up happens in your life

    Discover the importance of managing emotional triggers.

The course is broken up into five video lessons. You also get actionable exercises for each lesson and a really, really pretty digital workbook that you can print off.

This isn’t some new age, hippy-dippy circle where I’ll make you do weird shit like pretend to have a conversation with a chair or scream at God or whatever. (Although, you might still scream at God at some point.)

I’m not interested in surface-level “tricks” and “hacks.” Screw that. Life’s too short to half-ass this.

We’ll be digging deep into your emotional shit to figure out why it stinks so much.

But don’t worry, because then we’ll come up with a plan to help you piece yourself back together. You’ll learn strategies that will help you navigate this messy, emotional world for the rest of your life.

What People Are Saying

Praise for the Emotional Mastery Course

I’ve had social anxiety my whole life which has been exacerbated by quarantining. Mark breaks down out-of-control emotions into manageable pieces that can be worked on or accepted. The anxiety isn’t gone but the bit that is there feels manageable—I’m comfortable in my own skin. I’m no longer beating myself up about being an anxious weirdo.

Ryan

This is a great class, and as with everything Mark does, each pass you make through the material, you find it gets better and more applicable. Mark’s material is like a Coen Brothers movie. The first time you watch, you think, “Wow. Good movie.” By the 5th time you watch, you think, “Damn… this is the best movie ever!

Jim

Great course! I learned a few thing about myself that I’d forgotten. An unfinished work that we all are. Thank you!

Robert

Excellent. It got me to create a new habit of reacting to my emotions in a positive way. I know that I will always be anxious about my future but I remain present to solve current problems instead of fixing future problems in my head.

Syaiful

This course was really enlightening, I didn’t know I needed it so much. I went through this course with one specific emotion but I’m sure I’ll have to do the exercises again with another emotion.

What I love about your courses is that you’re explaining things naturally and being funny and detached, quoting your own experiences. I like that you don’t take things too seriously but still provide excellent work and content. The whole thing takes the pressure to improve myself off. I can’t wait to do the other courses, the whole subscription is worth every penny!

Ana

Worth it. My counselor asked me what I did because I’d never been this in touch with my emotions (so you don’t have to rely on my subjective review). Once I scheduled time to do the course, it was easy and made a world of difference.

Julie

I am currently going through a rough time with my 17-year-old daughter, her mother (my 1st wife) and my wife/ex-wife (going through a separation), and this course made me realize where things went sideways. I also realized some of the root causes of why I avoid conflict. My parents separating when I was young made me want to avoid arguments. I also found out after I shared this with my sister that she does the same thing. Holy shit. I was blown away, cried quite a lot, shared with my therapist and now I have some meaningful actions to try and move ahead with my daughter and, hopefully, wife.
