EUR MOTIVATIONAL NOTE

Today’s ‘Live Better With Willie Jolley’ Tip: Stay Calm and be An Independent Thinker Today’s tip for success is focused on helping you overcome this challenging economy. It is taken from my new book, Turn Setbacks Into Greenbacks.

When life throws us curveballs, they can come in waves. Once the rush of activity begins, we can easily get caught up in the activity. And if we are not mindful, we can get caught up in a mob mentality; the hysteria of the moment. These are times when people get caught up in activities without really thinking them through, yet they do them anyway, because everyone else is doing them. It typically happens when people act before they think.

We have seen soccer mobs exhibit crazy behavior and fight each and later have no idea why they did what they did. They cannot explain it, they only can describe that it was so quick that I didn’t know what was happening! I just got caught up! That is exactly why it is important to stay calm, even when others around you are losing their minds. I encourage you to make a point of practicing calm even when the people around me are getting overly excited about the issues that are swirling around and about them. Stay calm and take time and think!
