Next time you're in a position where you think you're given the shaft , go through the following routine:
1. Notice the fire hazard signs.
2. Feel the heat.
3. Take a step back.
4. Understand that if you stand too close you're going to feel hot.
5. Understand that if you stand too close for too long you're going to get burned.
Ask yourself these 2 questions: • What would I do if I didn't take this personally? • What would I do if I didn't feel the heat?
Answering the questions: - gives you time to THINK as well as FELL - takes CONTROL of the situation and gives you a CHOICE
