"Nothing gives a person so much advantage over another as to remain always cool and unruffled under all circumstances."
Why is it that some people seem to handle even the most trying of times with an air of calmness, regularly exhibiting a serene peace of mind that almost defies description? These folks somehow manage to maintain a seemingly nonchalant approach, keeping a cool and composed presence even while those around them are wilting under the heat of the moment.
How can these individuals stay so calm when everyone else has completely lost their cool? What allows them to remain cool as a cucumber even in when the heat is turned up full blast? They keep their cool because they have conditioned themselves to keep their wits when problems arise in their lives.
"The more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his success, his influence, his power for good. Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom."
By nurturing a calm and tranquil spirit within, these cool customers develop the capacity to remain relaxed and in control. Regardless of how difficult the challenge facing them appears, they try not to overreact or lose their focus. They have learned that by staying calm, they can zero in on finding a way around, over or through even the most difficult of challenges. And so can you as well.
Staying cool, calm and collected all day long, especially when you can cut the pressure with a knife, is one tough challenge. Yet keeping your cool is an absolute must if you truly wish to bring out your best.
"The world belongs to the enthusiast who keeps cool."
The next time you're broadsided by one whopper of a challenge; don't lose control of the situation by losing your cool. Instead, take a step back, take a few deep breaths and then take control. By keeping your mind clear and your emotions under wraps, you'll find that you never lose control of your senses - or the situation.
Why should you allow the problems you face daily the opportunity to unravel your nerves or undo your day? You shouldn't and you won't when you learn how to maintain your cool and keep your composure.
"Keep cool and you will command everyone."
Woodrow T. Wilson once said, "One cool judgment is worth a thousand hasty counsels. The thing to do is to supply light and not heat." There's no doubt about it, your creative imagination can light the way - if you'll just turn down the heat for a while.
While it's easy to fly off the handle when someone or something gets under your skin, you'll find that staying calm and in control will yield much better results and you'll feel better too. Whenever and wherever you start getting a little hot under the collar, just sit back and sip a little Cool Aid - and make sure you keep your cool.
The Bottom Line: When you keep your cool, you're able to keep control.
