Remember this. He who gets mad first loses.
If I am driving too slowly and the person behind me honks his horn, I can get mad and salute him in unfriendly ways or I can just let it slide. The choice is mine and mine alone. If the other person chooses to get mad, that is his choice. I didn't make him angry. How can I, when he is in control of his own destiny and emotions just as I am.
Ultimately Change is all about Choices! Choose to be in control of your own emotions.
Choose to be Happy!
Choose to be Nice!
Choose to associate yourself with positive people!
Choose to be a Giving person!
Choose to monitor and control your thoughts for your thoughts become words. Words can cut or they can heal; choose to use them wisely. Your words become Actions. Understand your actions for they become Habits. Study your habits for they will become your Character. Develop your Character, for it becomes the beacon of change for all, in the corner where you are.
