Do you think that you can be patient? More importantly, do you think that you can avoid taking things personally? You need to be able to think on your feet. You have to stay sharp and aware. If you let yourself get too frustrated or think that you have something to prove, you will likely develop a ‘chip on your shoulder’. Next thing you know, it will be knocked off making you feel even more incensed than before. Certainly you need to be firm…passionate even! But the moment you identify with a failure and take it too deeply to heart is the second that you will invite further mishaps. It’s more a matter of a moment than it is a long term issue. Relax a bit, but keep the fire stoked!
