So many successful men and women have said that if you react to the spoken word, you have really no control. Think about it…
When someone says something we don’t like, are you the type that becomes irritated, upset, reactionary? How easy is it for you to simply listen and make no facial expression or verbal statement?
Let me change the thought process for just a moment. What is compulsatory eating? It’s a habit that when you’re stressed, you eat, right? Why do people bite their nails? It’s not because they taste good. These are what we call Bad Habits, and I’m sure you can think of others.
Now if you don’t do something to change those bad habits you could end up overweight and on blood pressure medication before you know it. You could be labeled a Nervous Nellie for the amount of time your putting your fingers to your mouth. We typically want to change that habit, right?
Ok, back to the reactionary issues. Most of you probably see where I’m going with this already.
Maybe it’s time to change the settings on Reaction Time too. Do you really have that much time to waste on being upset? Learn to just let it go.
