We all face them. Little disappointments. Daily challenges.
Things like receiving an annoying email. Finding out news that bothers you. Even the little things matter. They eat away at us on the inside and stop us from gaining productivity and momentum in other things which count in life.
My new attitude?
Look at each of these annoyances as a challenge? Ask yourself: How can I use this situation to improve myself as a person? How can I use this as an opportunity to further my quest toward achieving my goals?
A normal first reaction to, say, for example, receiving a disappointing or nasty email, is anger. Refusal to agree. Wanting to send back a tart response.
Stop. Think about it for a minute. A day. However long it takes. And then try to figure out how you can regain control of the situation. How you can use this email to improve yourself.
OK, maybe I'm rambling. Back to work.
