It was another one of those days at the office.
The morning started with me having the day planned out in my mind – at least until I opened my email. Then my world became chaotic.
Overnight, deadlines had changed on work due.
I could feel anxiety hitting me and I hadn’t even had my first cup of coffee.
Then it happened.
A staff member approached me in a somewhat unpleasant tone.
I felt “my temperature rise” and I was about to unload and “light that fire”…..until….in an instant…. my stoic training kicked in.
My mind relaxed.
I gained self-control.
I approached the situation without aggression.
And you know what?
The staff’s request needed a simple explanation.
I resolved the problem quickly without “losing it”.
And I felt awesome.
Self-control, self-control, self-control.
That’s the New ME!
