Every day we have opportunities to be upset, frustrated and to go around offended. Maybe our plans didn’t work out or somebody was rude to us at the office or what should have taken an hour ended up taking 3 hours. Life is full of inconveniences. There will always be interruptions and people that are hard to get along with.

We can’t control all of our circumstances but we can control our reaction. Somebody once said life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond. We should go out each day positive and hopeful expecting favor but at the same time we should be realistic knowing that most days are not going to go according to how we had it planned.

If you get stressed because you got off schedule…what you’re doing is giving away your power. We were created to be in peace. When you have this calmness on the inside, a joy in your spirit, a smile on your face….that’s a position of power. That’s when you’re at your very best.

Many people these days have the wrong approach to life. They think they cannot be happy unless they control all their circumstances and make sure everything goes their way. That’s not realistic. We have to come to the place where we can say we don’t have to have our way in order to have a good day.  Make up your mind that no matter what does or doesn’t happen you’ll stay in peace and enjoy your day.

The next time you’re tempted to get upset and frustrated, ask yourself “Is this worth giving my power away?” Some of us don’t have the victory that we should because we keep giving it away. Life is too short to live upset and offended. If you allow your circumstances to control your joy then there’ll always be some reason to be discouraged.

Quit giving away your power. Don’t allow other people to steal your joy. Don’t allow yourself to be upset and disturbed. Rise above your situations.

Be determined that you will enjoy your life. When you allow what someone says or does to upset you, you’re allowing them to control you. Don’t put too much importance on what other people say about you. Don’t let people ruin your day.

Be like an eagle that rises to a different altitude every time it faces adversity. Don’t be like the crow.
