Reactions 

​The words that came from your mouth; the action you took; pretend that your enemy just did that… 

how would you react?

“How hatred and vengeance leave a path of destruction in an ever-widening circle.” Leonard Nimoy

Stop condemning another for their behavior and think about what you’re doing. 

“Violence does, in truth, recoil upon the violent, and the schemer falls into the pit which he digs for another.” Sherlock Holmes

Stop allowing the negatives to win by getting you to do what they do.

“madness has no purpose, or reason, but it may have a goal.” Mr. Spock

The goal is abliteration!

“When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but with creatures of emotion, creatures bristling with prejudice, and motivated by pride and vanity”

-Dale Carnegie

Don’t feed the fire with the same actions that started it!

“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself”. Leo Tolstoy 

We must all change our way of thinking and reacting before we implode!

“We’re all desperate to be understood, but forget to be understanding.” Unknown 

Try to listen to people and understand them.

“Just because your pain is understandable, doesn’t mean your behavior is acceptable” Steve Maraboli

After understanding, comes contemplation. Don’t react hastily. Don’t fuel the fire. 

“Unless your heart, your soul, and your whole being are behind every decision you make, the words from your mouth will be empty, and each action will be meaningless. Truth and confidence are the roots of happiness.”  Kathleen Pedersen 

Breathe. 

After relaxing, think with a clear and rational mind. Don’t let arbitrary things bother you. Answer with words that will solidify your cause. Answer with words that provide hope instead of more fire.

“One can begin to reshape the landscape with a single flower.” Spock

Remember, it’s not about being perfect or getting your way, it’s about being heard and making progress.
