“Nothing is softer or more flexible than water, yet nothing can resist it” - Lao Tzu

There will always be people that penetrate your 360-degree zone with an abrupt change in direction.

Meanwhile, you’ve spent hours and hours planning, preparing, and fine-tuning all aspects of your project or event.

Do not react!

Respond with intelligent behavior that teaches others how you would like to be treated in the future.

Simply think; “Isn’t that interesting?”

Your flexibility now provides you with greater personal strength and power.

For most people, this is not an easy task.

There will always be detours along the way.

Being caught up in a rigid and inflexible mindset produces very little results in the long run.

This is the juncture where James Allen’s quote comes in very handy.

“Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom. It is the result of long and patient effort and self-control. Its presence is an indication of ripened experience, and of a more than ordinary knowledge of the laws and operations of thought.”

The key is to respond and not react as this action allows you to transform problems into opportunities.

We are all wired to either react or respond to present circumstances. Therefore, in order not to succumb to this derailment, we must always do the following to the best of our ability.

“Do not allow present circumstances to influence your thinking, your decision-making or your present moment happiness.”

Therefore, renew your vow to yourself to be the very best version of yourself every single day. Allow that masterpiece that was created within you to emerge victoriously. Be the champion that you were created to be.

As you begin to do this, you are renewing your vow to yourself to be the very best version of yourself every single day. You are now allowing that masterpiece that was created within you to emerge victoriously. As a result, you are now becoming the champion that you were created to be.

There will always be issues no matter what we do in life. Sometimes, we have to make some difficult decisions.

Non-judgmental communication sets the stage for great dialogue.

List five non-judgmental communication strategies that you will initiate immediately.

In order to communicate effectively, you have to release it in a spirit of expectation and gratitude.

People will never be able to read your mind however they must be taught.

You must teach people how you want to be treated. Continually shoving touchy issues under the carpet is to no avail and ultimately someone has to clean it up.

It might as well be you.

There will be issues or events that arise that are not congenial.

In these times, we must have very specific tools at our command.

Compartmentalization and the react/respond trigger work effectively.

“It's not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.” - Epictetus

Once the event has taken place there is absolutely nothing that you can do to alter it.

However, you are fully in control of what happens to you emotionally after the event.

Your thinking at this point creates your circumstances.

In order to release negativity or non-productive thinking release the event or individual with the HSPP factor.

This is the script and it works perfectly if you are serious about releasing the negativity.

The universe is always listening.

“I absolutely release (name of individual or event) to (his/her/its) highest good of happiness, success, prosperity and peace of mind.”

This is the HSPP factor in action.

Pass it on.
