The Power of One

“You can choose your reactions, and your reaction is based on your thoughts,” (Smalley, p43).

I do not fully understand this concept, but I do know that I have a choice in how I react then my fear button is pushed. Now, today, has been pretty frustrating since I see now that my fear button is being pushed but I do not know yet how to change my reaction.

    I’m terrible at this. Mine’s not the fear button; it’s the mad button. I can’t control it. I can when I remember to pray at least daily. And then I’ll get really good at praying daily and the angry button stops being so sensitive and then I’ll slack off on praying.
    See the cycle?

      I believe angry is how we react then our fear buttons are pushed. I know generally my first react is to get mad or to instantly defend myself whether or not that person was actually attacking me. Just the other day, my coworker emailed me saying that we needed to be extra diligent in 2012 because as a department we are wasting time redoing things on the back end (which is my coworker’s area) that should be gone correctly on the front-end (my area). And, I was angry and I wanted to yell that I do my part but I am not perfect, but I kept my mouth closed and stepped back and examined the issue because I think I am pretty good at my job. But why was a angry because the email pushed my fear button and I felt invalidated like the extra mile I go at work did not matter.
