Release Anger for Success

You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger. ~Buddha

When was the last time you were, as we Texans say, spittin' mad?  Last week, yesterday, or five minutes ago?  How do you feel?  Do you feel refreshed and energized? Or are you drained and unable to think of anything else?  If it was last week, are you still thinking about it?  It's OK to be angry.  It is what you do with that anger that will keep you from success.  Strong admirable leaders do not live in an anger state.  You cannot think about positive thoughts if your brain is full of painful resentment.  You can't think two things at the same time.  It's time to stop thinking about that which makes you angry and instead focus on that which makes you strive. 

1. Close your eyes
2. Breathe
3. Empty your mind
4. As thoughts come in, acknowledge and whisk them away
5. Focus on your breathing
6. Think about the affirmation:

"I will release any anger I have, so that I can
lead with positive strength."
