Become more effective & efficient in managing moods
The process of ensuring that we are
in the most appropriate mood for
the situation begins with simply
knowing what mood we are in at a
given moment. However, few of us
stop to assess our mood during the
course of the day; we are often
influenced by our mood without
being consciously aware of it.
Test your mood
How often do you stop and consider
what mood you are in? Moodism can
teach you how to test your mood and
use that information to your advantage.
Mood swings can be positive
The existence of mood swings
demonstrates that moods can
change. The term mood swings
rarely refers to moods swinging
from bad to good. Moodism is
about pioneering a new kind of
mood swing—a planned one A
mood swing that occurs when we
realize we are not in the right mood,
and that our mood is negatively
influencing our interactions with
those we encounter. By right mood,
we mean matching your emotional
content to a successful outcome.
Changing Your Mood
Instead of letting your mood
control you, you can manage and
control your moods so you put
unhelpful moods behind you and
generate moods that allow you to
be successful. We might want to
swing from the cheerful mood we
gained from talking with our
children to a tough-minded mood
for our upcoming business meeting.
Moodism is about intentionally
changing our mood so we are in
the right mood for the situation.
Changing Others Moods
Have you ever been in a group when
you are in a good mood but no one
else is? If these individuals are people
you are trying to work with, their bad
moods can be counterproductive.
Happy people are more creative and
productive people, so helping others
be in a better mood can benefit you,
them, the company you work for, and
anyone else with whom that other
person comes into contact.
How You Change Moods
All the possible techniques for Moodism
have one of two possible goals: to get
us out of the mood we are in, or get us
into the mood in which we want to be.
The variety of ways to change your
mood is unlimited & unknown.
Moodists believe a more fulfilling,
satisfying, successful, effective life
can be led by understanding our
moods and connecting with others.
Our ability to empathize with others,
and thus to connect with them, is
enhanced by our willingness to find
something in our past that allows us
to identify with the struggles others
are encountering. This may require
taking a risk and exposing ourselves
emotionally, as well as an effort to
comprehend the motivators for another
individual’s emotion. Once we connect
with others, we find that we look
forward to working with those people,
we trust them, and believe in them.
The Value of Trust
Empathy allows us to start building
connections with others, and building
connections with others fosters the
development of trust. Once you are
connected through your moods and
emotions, interpersonal efficiencies
increase. Your natural fear fades
and a willingness to trust, accept,
understand and challenge others
in a functional framework is
