- Choose a positive mindset — ALWAYS.
- Control. Life happens, things happen. They are out of your control. But, you can control your reaction to those events. You can control what you think and do about it.
- Preparation. You need to react well to whatever will happen in life by being prepared. Outside events don't matter. What matters is your interpretation and how you react to them.
- Balance. You decide whether events beyond your control are good or bad, whether or not they're just or unjust. The emotions you feel are real. They come from the inside, not the outside.
- Stay calm. How you handle small negative opportunities is how you handle everything. Don't sweat the small stuff, because in the larger scheme of things, it's all small stuff.
- Do the right thing. Always be prepared to do the right thing. You will never regret it.
So, we prepare ourselves for inevitable change. We train our minds to adapt to any circumstances life presents. That is how we succeed.
