The Four Emotions for Positive Change in Addiction Recovery

Emotions are the silent architects of our actions, shaping the course of our lives in ways both subtle and profound. In our captivating YouTube video, we discuss the transformative potential of four fundamental emotions: disgust, desire, decision, and resolve. Join us in unlocking the secrets to harnessing these emotions as catalysts for personal growth and empowerment. Watch, share, and subscribe to our channel to learn more about self-discovery and transformation.


Disgust, often associated with negativity, holds within it a potent force for positive change. When channeled effectively, it becomes a rallying cry against complacency. It marks the moment when we declare, “Enough is enough!” Disgust propels us to confront the status quo and demand better for ourselves.


Desire, the fire burning within, is both an intrinsic and extrinsic force. It emanates from deep within our souls but can be ignited by external stimuli. From poignant melodies to profound conversations, desire emerges from unexpected sources, driving us to pursue our dreams with unwavering determination.


Decision-making is a crucible of conflicting emotions, pushing us to the brink of uncertainty. Yet, it is within this crucible that transformation occurs. When we stand at the crossroads of choice, we are compelled to confront our fears and uncertainties. It is here that decisive action takes root, propelling us towards our desired path.


Resolve, the unwavering commitment to our aspirations, epitomizes the power of human will. With a resolute “I will,” we declare our intent to conquer obstacles and achieve our goals. As Benjamin Disraeli aptly stated, “Nothing can resist a human will.” When we embody this resolve, no challenge is insurmountable.
