The next time you’re driving and another car cuts you off, or you’re stuck in traffic, or you’re just about to reach the toll booth when suddenly the gate closes, or the next time you’re waiting in line someone butts in front of you, or your plane is delayed, or an accident causes an hour-long traffic jam, or your boss drops a nice little one-liner that doesn’t sit well, you’ve got to make one of life’s most important choices.
The choice basically has two options.
Option 1: Flip out, stress yourself out, swear, get upset, get frustrated, yell at someone, flip-em the bird, pull your hair out etc… etc…
Option 2: Realize how lucky you actually are. Realize it wasn’t you who had the car accident. Realize how lucky you are to be able to commute and travel in a car. Realize how fortunate you are to be able to afford fuel. Observe how the people behind you aren’t freaking out, they’re actually smiling.
Realize how important these small things are and how often we take them for granted.
In a nutshell, option 1 negatively impacts every single aspect of your life.
Don’t believe me?
Using option #1, on a routine basis, directly affects nearly everything you do. Compounding negative energy, even in small, tiny, minuscule, insignificant ways in your daily life, will have a profound effect on nearly every single aspect of your life – like your wealth, your karma, your success, your health, your relationships, and even how long you live.
Using option #2, each time one of these unlimited number of situations arises, I guarantee you good things will start to happen.
Ultimately, it’s your call though.
P.S. If you’ve been using option #1 for a long time, or every time life has thrown a snowball at you, you’ve got a long road ahead. You may have actually ingrained these negative habits so deeply into your brain that they’re now second nature.
I’d get busy trying to reverse that.
P.S.S. Enjoy the weekend, and use option #2 as much as possible this weekend.
