When something goes wrong, try to avoid getting mired in the usual reactions of
anger, frustration, disappointment, and despair. Instead, hoist yourself to another
level—one of understanding, acceptance and fortitude. Say to yourself: “Yes, this is tough,
but if I can meet the challenge and get through it—and I will—not only will I have
dealt with this problem, I will be that much stronger to tackle an even worse crisis
should one come along.” Sure, it's not easy. But if you ratchet up your reaction to strife a
notch or two, and meet it squarely, you'll emerge from it in much better shape.
Complaint can give you any help but worse condition, so why not treat tough things with your smile? A good educated guy seldom angry with anything.
