Do you allow people and circumstances control your life, moods, and state of mind?
How do you feel, if your boss criticizes your work, or tells you something you don’t like?
How do you react, when a driver enters recklessly, and without signaling, into your lane, in front of your car?
In these and similar situations, do you, keep thinking about the incident? Do you get angry, unhappy or frustrated?
This happens to almost everybody, almost everyday. Just think, how many minutes, and often hours, you spend every day, dwelling on what this person said and that person did. If you take these incidents too personally you become unfocused and inefficient at work, at home, at everywhere else.
We let people and circumstances control our life, if we let them affect our moods and state of mind.
