Would you hand your car keys to a total stranger, and allow that person to drive off with your car? No, of course not. Would you give control of your bank account and credit cards to someone you didn’t really know that well? Absolutely not!
Yet, you may be letting other people, even people you don’t know, take control of something even more valuable that your automobile or your bank account –your attitude.
Think about it. Who really controls your attitude? Ultimately, you control it. Yet when you let your attitude pushed around by what others say and do, you’re giving up that control, and the consequences are usually disastrous.
Always keep in mind that, no matter what happens, you have the power to decide what to think about it. You can decide whether to be insulted or to be amused. You can decide whether to get drawn into a no-win situation or to continue working toward the goals you have set for yourself.
The way you think about the world around you makes an enormous difference in the quality of your life. So stay in control of your attitude, and make that life the best it can be.
