I will never forget the time I walked into a meeting where one of my customers and lead engineer were arguing. I am not talking about a minor disagreement, they were yelling at each other. I listened to them for a few more minutes then said, well do you have that out of your system. Let’s focus on the mission of this office and not your issues. The funny part is they were arguing about different things and not listening to the other.
I really had no time for their bad behaviors or minor issues I was focus on my inner peace and completing the mission. So often people get into the issues and never find the peace. I have learned to focus on my peace and turn off the noise of fighting.
People will often question me as to why I don’t react to other people’s bad behaviors. I always tell them I see no point in adding to the confusion I choice to remain at peace. Then they laugh and say you are using your parenting skills on us. Yes, that is very true as a single parent raising seven children I had to focus on my inner peace or go crazy.
It is truly a choice. You can have peace; just don’t allow others bad behaviors to control you.
Much Joy and Love to you and yours
