‘Married to the Mossad’ Author Shalva Hessel Joins Daria Anne on Your Book Your Brand Your Business

Can A Wife And Mother Thrive In The Secret World Of Spies? A Woman Who Joined Her Husband On Missions For The Mossad Shares Her Stories

Tune in to Your Book Your Brand Your Business on Monday, March 25 at 5 PM Eastern on W4CY Radio when ‘Married to the Mossad’ author Shalva Hessel joins Daria Anne for a fascinating interview:

The fight against terrorism often happens outside the media radar in a world of secret missions and James Bond-style intrigue. And while these exploits in espionage conjure a macho image, it’s often women who taking a leading role – and face dangers in the bargain.

“Women are especially suited and needed for fighting terrorism and crime,” says Shalva Hessel, author of “Married to the Mossad” (www.shalvahessel.com), a fictionalized version of her own real-life story. Hessel knows something about the subject because she joined her husband on his secret missions for the Mossad, the Israeli national intelligence agency. Why would she subject herself to such dangers? She has a ready answer.

“It’s only when you rise above your own narrow self interest that you find the courage to achieve great things,” Hessel observes. “But women’s contributions to the fight against terrorism don’t always get the attention they deserve. You can’t win the fight against our enemies without strong, brave women at the front,” Hessel states. “Even in the most macho environment like the Mossad, CIA or FBI, the women’s role has never been more important.”

An In-Depth Look at Anger

According to psychologist Charles Speilberger, Ph.D who specializes in the study of anger, “Anger is an emotional state that varies from mild irritation to intense fury and rage. It’s accompanied by physiological, psychological and biological changes. When you get angry, your heart rate and blood pressure elevate, as does the level of energy hormones adrenalin and noradrenalin.” Anger can be triggered by thousands of external events but in reality, every feeling we have is the direct result of our thought process. Therefore, whatever thoughts you are formulating about the event you are witnessing or experiencing actually leads to feelings of anger. For example, a driver cuts me off on the highway. I can say to myself (my thoughts), “This guy’s an idiot!” and trigger feelings of rage (intense anger). Or, I can choose to express relief that I was able to avoid a collision. “Thank God I have quick reflexes!”, thus producing feelings of gratitude and good fortune.

Nationally renowned speaker Israel Kalman, MS, offers further insight into anger and defines it as an emotional drive to defeat anyone or anything that we perceive as a threat. In this regard, anger alerts us to the fact that we, or someone or something else, is perceived to be in danger. Adrenalin and noradrenalin prepare us for the flight or fight mode as a means to restore our safety.

Whenever anger arises, we have several options available to us as to how to handle it. First and foremost, we can train ourselves to monitor our thoughts, thus choosing those that produce the most advantageous emotions. I can teach myself to see the goodness and benefits of whatever enters my life as opposed to always seeking the negative. While this may not work 100% of the time, it can become our default method of experiencing life.

Secondly, we can choose to control anger in the moment. This can prove beneficial under certain circumstances where remaining calm is more advantageous than an immediate expression of our outrage. In a recent incident, a woman was on the verge of being raped. Her husband, naturally enraged, attacked the assailant in an effort to protect his wife. However, his rage was overpowering and he eventually killed the attacker. Now facing manslaughter charges, had he momentarily controlled his rage, he most likely could have avoided such devastating consequences.

Thirdly, once the anger has manifest, we can choose to safely express it verbally or choose benign ways of expending it, such as through physical activity. Readjusting our expectations, forgiving those who have offended us, accepting that which we have no control over in life, appreciating every person and event that enters our life as a necessary part of our journey, and prayer are just some of the techniques that help alleviate anger in any of its stages.

In conclusion, remember that anger is an emotion and like all other emotions is neither good or bad, right or wrong. It’s what we do with our anger and how we manage it that makes it a motivating force for positive change or a destructive one that creates additions problems in our lives.
Remember the formula called T~E~C~O Magic: your Thoughts create your Emotions which cause you to make certain Choices. And everything we say or do has an Outcome. If you are not happy with the results of how you handled your anger, change your thought process and everything that follows will change as well. Negative thoughts ultimately produce negative results; positive = positive.
