Free workbook: 4 Steps to Stop Letting Others Ruin Your Day!
Do you ever find yourself coming home from work, so fired up that you can't stop talking about what the other person did? You lie in bed thinking of all of the things you "should" have said. In fact, these thoughts keep you up most of the night!
Perhaps, while driving, you re-play the scenario in your car, but this time, you play it flawlessly. You say everything that you wished you had said, leaving the other person with nothing to say in return.
If you have done any of these things...you are NOT alone!
Today I will provide you with 4 Steps to STOP Letting Others Ruin Your Day!
It's time to stop allowing others to dictate how YOU feel...
Think of the last time that you felt upset. Did it involve someone else? I'd venture a safe guess...most likely. It might seem obvious to you why someone else ruined your day...but here's the real truth.
You gave them permission.
Yep. It was you, sorry to break it to you. You are the ONLY one who can create your day, week, month, life. No one else. Unless...you give them permission.
I know what you're thinking. "If you only knew what she said...what she did.." Here's an honest question: How much control do you have over another person? Truly, none. Zip. Zero. Zilch.
"Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it." - Charles R. Swindoll
