|There is a fine line between ordinary and extraordinary, but what’s great is that YOU define your destiny by having control of your life and choosing what happens.
It all starts with being responsible for YOUR choices and actions; taking the necessary steps to become the most genuine, humble and compassionate version of YOU.
Reacting in stressful situations can be difficult, so follow these tips when striving to live your life above the line:
- It’s not about who wins. Make the choice to be kind, and adapt this philosophy into your daily routine, if possible. Petty arguments can happen frequently, but you can avoid wasting precious time and energy by preventing an argument before it begins.
- Step away from conflict. When faced with a hostile situation, often the best, but hardest thing to do is walk away. Remember: walking away doesn’t mean you’re a weak person. It means that the situation doesn’t warrant your attention and energy.
- Be nice for the sake of being nice. Complement or do good things for others without expecting anything in return. We often fight for attention, praise, compliments, and favors, but the most compassionate and genuine people are those that do good deeds, and don’t expect a thing in return.
- Your reactions speak volumes. Don’t sweat the small stuff – let it roll right off your shoulders! Everyone has flaws, but nobody likes when they are exposed. It’s important to accept that criticism is part of everyday life. It’s up to you to not take it personal.
