The best way to remain composed and collected is to breathe. To not care so much, and to focus on the positive aspects of situations.
Remaining composed is something that I truly respect. The ability to keep a calm demeanor is not only impressive but also unbelievably useful. All scenarios call for different courses of action. But to be able to make a rational and ultimately beneficial decision one must remain calm in any situation.
Stress is something that we congregate around in our society. I usually say that I don’t get stressed out. I am usually a rational being, meaning I use logic in most decisions I make. But at times I do get stressed and I do make impulse decisions. No one is perfect.
I crashed my car into another car today. It wasn’t a big deal, just a light bump. But the fact that I was tired, frazzled, late and in a general sense of disarray obviously contributed to my incompetence. Luckily I didn’t cause any damage.
Everything happens for a reason. Everything happens to teach us something about ourselves. What lessons do I need to learn? Why did I crash? What is this supposed to teach me?
Pay attention. Be present. Focus. Mentality effects reality.
