Emotions Amplify

Maggie Baker, Ph.D., reminds us in her book Crazy About Money: How Emotions Confuse our Money Choices and What to do About it, that "our emotions determine what is amplified in our life." There are 9 basic emotions that we are born with.

Negative Emotions

  • Fear - terror
  • Anger - rage
  • Anguish - anxiety
  • Sadness - grief
  • Shame - humiliation
  • Dismell - disgus

Positive Emotions

  • Interest - excitement
  • Enjoyment - joy
  • Surprised - startled

May you balance your emotions with reason and understanding in all of your decisions.
