The conscious ability to determine if, when and how we response to stimuli from our environment is one of mankind's greatest powers--one that too few know and even fewer practice. Most people respond to circumstance and happenstance in a semi-automatic way, driven by their conditioning--social, cultural and experiential. This, in turn, depletes their personal power and effectiveness.
In contrast, those who are in pursuit of mastery operate quite differently, making clear distinctions between who they are and what happens around them. When they deem that certain emotional responses will be a detriment to their journey, they choose not to respond in that way, at that time, or not to respond at all. Is your well-being a product of circumstances or a result of your conscious thought?
