Live Life On Your Own Terms

Remember that no one can hurt your feelings without your cooperation and willingness.

No one can cause you to have any kind of emotional reaction without your first giving them permission to do so. You alone are responsible for your feelings and emotions. When you know what you plan to do with your life, you will not allow annoying situations to deter you from your goals for long. If you set ambitious goals for yourself and work enthusiastically toward them, you will quickly realize that you don’t have time to allow petty annoyances to upset you and keep you from your objectives.
~ From Napoleon Hill

Only you have the power to feel a certain way, think a certain way and behave a certain way. Unless you are held at gunpoint, you have that power. Otherwise, you are a victim of your own circumstances; and victim mode is never empowering.

So, just for today, exercise your power and live your life on your own terms!
