Stay Calm in Fury

Whenever anyone has offended me, I try to raise my soul so high that the offense cannot reach it. ~René Descartes~

There are times when people will say the wrong thing.  They may or may not mean what they say.  People are poor communicators and they will make assumptions about things.  They think they know what you are thinking and will decide what you are doing without asking questions to get clarity.  Leaders will stay calm when when there is fury around them.  As a leader, don't get pulled into the drama.  Let others get worked up. You can't think clearly when you are crazed with anger. You should stay calm and focused on the goal.  As a matter of fact, the more others get out of control, you should get in more control.  As others shout, you should whisper.  When others try to get down and dirty, you should fly so that you can see the whole picture with a clear head.  When you have a clear head you are a better leader.

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 stay focused and out of the drama that can derail me and my journey."
