Today’s ‘Live Better With Willie Jolley’ Tip: Settle Down and Think Up
Today’s tip for success is focused on helping you overcome this challenging economy. It is taken from my new book, Turn Setbacks Into Greenbacks. When life throws us curveballs, they can create waves in their wake. Once the rush of activity begins, we can easily get caught up in that activity. And if we are not mindful, we can get caught up in a mob mentality; the hysteria of the moment.
People often get caught up in activities without really thinking them through, yet they do them anyway, because everyone else is doing them. That typically happens during a rushing wave, in which people act before they think. I recommend that in tough times you take a moment before taking action. Try to calm yourself down and think before acting. If you are in a position where you literally don’t have time to stop and think, I recommend you start working on your thinking right now…dig your well before you are thirsty. In other words, start working on staying calm right now, so that when challenges come your way, you will be prepared to respond in a calm way. Settle down, so you can think up!
