3. You will be able to choose the right emotional state given the situation so that you can take better decisions, manage properly a situation or transmit the correct emotional information to make positive change.

 

4. You will be able to calm yourself down and/or encourage yourself in difficult situations, you will be able to “swim” and keep your head above the water when struggling. Panicking is never a good choice when you are facing a difficult decision, and we don’t want politicians have their decisions blurred by their fears.
