ABOUT THE EPISODE
When we talk about aging well, we often gravitate toward the physical implications – exercise, proper sleep and healthy habits. What commonly gets overlooked is our emotional well-being. It’s possible to look well on the outside and be unhealthy on the inside. In this episode of the Pinnacle Leaders Podcast, Dr. Randal Langley and his wife Rev. Laurie Langley discuss the first two principles of emotional prosperity as taught by Paul Scanlon.

Aging well is not done by accident. You have to be intentional about moving forward. No one is immune from putting in the work, and no one gets a pass.
When you are financially bankrupt, there is $0 in your bank account. If you cut your finger, you can see the blood. But when it comes to emotional wellness, the indicators are harder to pinpoint. Emotional health is just as important as physical or financial health, but we have more trouble recognizing when we have fallen off course.
Paul Scanlon is a public speaker and coach focusing on communication, leadership and personal development. He has outlined six principles of emotional prosperity, and today we will cover the first two:
- Emotions are data. They are not directives. All emotions are optional, and they do not have to drive our decisions. Just because you feel an emotion does not mean you have to act on it. You get to choose what you do with the emotions you experience.
- Emotions are not feelings. An emotion becomes a feeling when you give it meaning. “That’s not what I meant” is a common statement that comes from mistaken emotions. If we give something a false meaning, it can derail our destiny and cause us to separate from our true purpose. In the Bible, we see that Joseph was able to give positive meaning to the negative situations in his life (being betrayed by his brothers, sold into slavery and wrongfully imprisoned). He recognized that what his brothers meant for evil, God redeemed for good.
