Author Name: Elisha O. Ogbonna
Mastering the Power of Your Emotions has a simple but undeniable premise: Emotions are at the centre of everything we do. If you can control your emotions, you can control your life. But as straightforward as this sound, most people are not the masters of their emotions. This is evident by the epidemic of depression, anxiety, suicides, violence, and broken relationships in today’s society.
To help correct this, Elisha Ogbonna explores how temperament and character influences emotional response; how to respond rather than react to a situation; the five Laws of Emotions; how to handle rejection, abandonment, depression, and grief; and how to release and replace negative emotions with positive ones.
Using his personal experiences, the laws of science, real-life examples, and scripture and other stories, Ogbonna pulls out all the stops to provide readers with a better understanding of good emotional health and the tips and tools to make sure they achieve it. As he notes, “We can change our world, workplace, families, and ultimately our lives for the better when we master our emotions.”
Elisha O. Ogbonna was born in Nigeria and moved to Canada in 2012. He has survived and thrived in his new country and today lives in Guelph, Ontario with his wife, Ndidi, and young daughter, Amanda. He has written this book for those who want to make their own decisions in life and not have life’s events decide for them what happens. Ogbonna is currently working on two more books in the Mastering series—Mastering Frustration: How to Turn Your Frustration into Fulfillment and Mastering Success: How to Get to the Top and Remain There.
