Mahatma Gandhi nailed it when he said, “I have learned through bitter experience the one supreme lesson, to conserve my anger. And as heat  conserved is transmuted into energy, even so our anger controlled, can be transmuted into an energy which can move the world.”




Life Masters have been saying for centuries that if we are able to control our emotions we are able to control the world. Anger is always seen as being an unattractive, debilitating, socially and professionally unacceptable emotion for good reason. But imagine being able to harness the power of your anger and while not only, not letting it out, be able to harness it’s power and allow it to motivate and inspire. To drive you, as never-giving-up fuel, to change that which made you angry. That my friend is when you are able to change your world.



Get Mad and go to the Bank!

The greatest revenge is to become successful. The anger, disappointment and hurt that you are feeling can be your fuel if you let it. I was once disrespected and ignored by a top speaker whom I admired. I made a promise that day to rival and eclipse him as a speaker. My anger drove me to work harder, to sacrifice more. So, the next time someone upsets you, especially your boss, competitor or your ex, become aware of how you are feeling and harness that energy. Don’t explode. Make a mental note to “bank the anger”. To allow it to simmer and to use it to enlighten, innovate and be the hardest worker in your field.  Why waste perfectly good anger energy on the idiot that made you angry? Use it to motivate and inspire yourself.   With all the poor service, frustrations, disappointments, taxis and random idiots you encounter every day you should have access to, A-grade plutonium anger energy.  The secret to harnessing this power at the source is silence –  in the moment. But more about that next time.

    Powerful post Gav, I will definitely be banking my anger going forward..

  2. Theresa says:

    Since my husband died I have made peace with the people who angered and upset me. I found that dealing with a loss of such magnitude I could not still hold on to such negative feelings and made peace with those who had created such negativity in my life. I am still battling with. acceptance of our loss five months after the fact. Work is part of life but should not consume your life. Family first and always.

      We only realise later in life that anger can be turned into ammunition. Silence is golden. Words get lost in translation when one is feuled with rage and disappointment.. It is a fine art and takes time to learn how to make use and turn it into a positive energy as the gate keeper of your own sanity…. Whomever is making you mad. Or has let you down or disappointed you. Salvage that energy, with clarity comes answers as well as power to overcome almost any situation.
