After watching the promo video, you will learn that this course will help you to pinpoint your challenge areas in your cycle of anger and through the information shared, you will be able to develop a plan for SUCCESS.
Starting with a complete overview of the all-new Emotional Cycle®, this 8-part system goes through each part in-depth and it shows you exactly what happens from the onset of your anger all the way through until the cycle repeats itself. This section alone will give you everything that you need to start overcoming your anger and stop the cycle from happening completely!
But, it doesn't stop there. This section concludes with tasks that are designed to help you identify where you have challenges within your cycle, why you have those challenges, and the types of physical and emotional experiences that you have as a result of your anger.
Section two teaches you about why change is hard and it begins with an explanation about the constant struggle that happens between your mind and your emotions. When your emotions and your mind are not working in tandem, it's generally your emotions that are in control of your decisions and unfortunately, they are what lead you through the emotional cycle. This section will teach you how to get your thinking, your emotions, and your environment in line with each other because together, those three aspects will maximize your success.
The final section for this course gives you the steps for an action plan. The plan is purposefully designed to be simple and easy to implement. Just keep in mind that real change takes consistency and practice. If you take the time to put the plan in place and you consistently work on the plan, then this system will work for you!
This introduction will give students an overview of the course. It will also include the 3 basic components of the program that will be discussed in great detail.
Students will be have an understanding of the background and the anger management research that was involved with the development of this course. In addition, students will have a better understanding of where other anger management systems fall short and that's with not including a deep understanding of the real why behind getting angry from the very beginning.
The three parts to this system include:
This is a quick video to give you some suggestions on how to go through the course. There's a lot of information presented, so take a look here to get some ideas on how to approach things to increase your success.
Anytime someone begins to experience anger, it always starts with a trigger or an event. Once that occurs, the anger cycle begins and will continue unless you have the skills and the understanding to stop the cycle. Oftentimes, people are unaware of what caused them to get angry and therefore they are never able to stop the cycle.
This video breaks down phase 2 of the Emotional Cycle. Many could argue that phase 2 comes before the trigger or the event, but after watching this video, you will have a better understanding of why your trigger lead to this phase.
The way that you think about anger is important. The problem is that once we are in an angry or emotional cycle, it is difficult to control how we are thinking because we are lead by our emotions. Unfortunately, by not being in control of your thinking, your anger or emotional cycle will continue. This video explains how.
As you continue in the anger or emotional cycle, things only continue to get worse. The range of what 'getting worse' means is extremely wide. In addition, the more you experience anger in your life, the greater the chance are that you have demonstrated a level of anger that could become physical.
Note: Anger doesn't have to be physical to be considers bad. ANY anger that is inappropriate is bad no matter what the level of escalation looks like.
Everyone who gets emotional eventually begin to recover. Because of the amount of energy that's used for getting angry, eventually that energy is used up and you start to feel a lot different. This doesn't mean that you are not still thinking about what's happening, but it does mean that even the thoughts are not as intense.
Recovery is a normal part of the process, but not the end of the cycle.
The true goal of the entire Emotional Cycle® is revealed in this lecture. It may shock you to find out that the goal is NOT to try to get through the cycle faster. The good news is everyone can be successful with this goal.
This section ends with a list of task that each participant can work on in their daily lives. These tasks can be implemented immediately and can speed up your learning and success with overcoming your anger.
These tasks are not meant to be done in a day simply because anger is generally more intrenched than that. These task should be wired on continuously until you find the success that you desire.

There's a constant battle that's always going on with your mind and your emotions. That is because they serve two completely different purposes in our lives. When our minds and our emotions are not in sync, it can create some form of cognitive dissonance, which is really a fancy phrase for a disagreement that causes stress or discomfort.
This video is very informative in explaining exactly what's going on and sheds light on why change for most people is hard.
The key to being outsmarted by our intellectual selves centers around knowing a fundamental principle and that is that we need to be mindful about our thoughts. In other words, we have to think about what we are thinking.
In addition, find out IF willpower is enough to have to make long-lasting change. This section explains more.
When we experience anger, it is generally because we are not in charge of our emotional selves. Our emotional selves need constant feedback and if we are not careful and we don't work to keep our emotions in tact, they can easily take over. This can undoubtedly lead to being on and staying in an emotional cycle.
Our environment is generally comprised with our support system. When our support system is weak, it can hurt us in our quest be in and stay in control of our emotions. In addition, we all have to be willing to make the changes necessary for our success.
This section ends with a list of task that can help you to be successful with making long lasting changes in your life. These tasks can be implemented immediately and can speed up your learning and success with overcoming your anger.

The information taught in this section will give students the best chances for success. It offers simple and easy to follow instructions for your action plan that can be implemented with ease.
This part of the action plan for your mind instructs the learner about the types of improvements they should expect, the types of goals they should set up for themselves, and the type of mindset that, if kept, will offer the most success in staying in control of their anger as well as other emotions that they are trying to overcome.
The BIGGEST success with our action plan that you set up for you emotions is about setting up, sticking to, and even praising small successes. As you get started with doing things differently, it is important to not focus on larger successes because even before larger successes become apparent, there will be a plethora of small successes that happened along the way.
Once you find great consistency with the small successes then you can begin to look forward to larger successes. But to start, remember to keep your emotional plan simple and consistent for optimal growth.
For your environmental action plan, there are really 2 key components that you should know and remember:
1. Know the types of environments and/or people that make you angry and either avoid those situations or limit the amount of time that you are in those situations. This will increase your success.
2. Get friends, family, and even co-workers to support you while you are on your journey. Be clear about what you need from them and allow them to help you when you need it.
The lecture offers more details that will be beneficial to your growth and development.
