If you are not exercising control over your thoughts -- which you MUST do in order to remain positive and be good for others -- then your moods ARE quite literally out of control. You cannot hope to avoid the emotional roller coaster until you become willing to make consistently good choices of thought and action, for the sake of the good results you want to cause.

Do not let everything you do depend on "how you feel." In that case, your moods are actually in charge of your life, and your results will always be inconsistent. For greater stability, choose well even when you don't feel well -- you'll find your mood will rapidly improve. Remember, how you feel depends mainly on what you think. And that points right back to the need for mental discipline!
