Most people say that the greatest force of world is human’s mind and wisdom. Some argue by saying the physical strength and mental toughness is what drives human forward. But both of these arguments might not be correct.
Let’s go back to history: if it was true how did Homo sapiens became dominant over Neanderthal man even though the Neanderthal man were more stronger and have more cranial capacity than us, sapiens. Why did Neanderthal man became extinct?
The greatest force in the world is human emotions. It’s the most important ingredient of human evolution. It is because of the human’s ability to create fiction that triggers human emotions that has made us dominant.
Let’s see the present moments. The shootout of black person by a police officer in America on May 2020 not only enraged the people of America but the whole world. Even in the dangerous situation of Coronavirus, people from all around the world came to street without caring their health. Why does the slogan of “Black Lives Matter” matters? Why do we care more about child right? Why do we care about climate change today than ever before?
Isn’t this all about human emotions?
In business world: we buy products that create emotions. It’s because of the emotion brands exist. We buy Nike sneakers, Apple’s phone, Tesla’s car. It’s all because of the emotions.
Mastering our emotions is the greatest challenge in today’s world because the world functions with emotions but it is a requirement.
