You wake up five minutes late for work. You spill coffee on your blouse, and then you forget that you have a morning meeting. It seems that everything went wrong from the moment you woke up. The truth is that things happen that are out of our control. However, what we do have control of is how we react to it. We are authors of our own novel. We are the main protagonist. If we believe our day is going to suck from the start, it probably will. Instead, take the time to pause and restart. Take five minutes to recompose yourself. Breathe in and out, and shake your body. Believe that bad energy is leaving your body when you do this. With this approach, you aren’t expecting things to go wrong just because your morning started off wrong. Instead, you think back and realize everything was just an accident. I forgot to put my alarm on, I accidentally spilled my coffee, and that distracted me from the morning meeting.
The power of the mind is one of the strongest tools we have.
